    I don't like beer, but wish I did because it's so much more convenient to drink than hard liquor (and I'm not into wine). I just don't like the taste.. So I think I need a beer that's way watered down, light, and.. non-beer tasting. Any suggestions? I had some coronas the other night and they were tolerable.. but wondering if u could think of something better. Thanks in advance

    Off topic, but may be helpful in your situation: maybe diluting vodka (or other clear alcohol) with something you like would be better, since the only potentially unpleasant taste would be that of ethanol, which you would have to taste with beer anyways.

    cheap light beer tends to taste more watered down, or alternatively you could try malt liquor, it still tastes like beer, but you won't have to drink as much to get drunk.

    Cider might be an option (fills a similar niche, doesn't taste like beer), just watch the alcohol content (often higher).

    Magic Hat No. 9... not only is it a GREAT ale, but it's got a perfect hint of apricot... not too sweet, but smells great, and sweet enough to clean the palate. Highly suggested for the newbie and the veteran alike.

    Guinness is good too, less carbonation.

    I used to absolutely hate the taste of beer as well. He started out by drinking beers with a lighter taste such as pilsners and lagers, but eventually acquired a taste for stronger-tasting beers. In fact, SWIM's favourite beers are now the "heavier" types of beers, namely stouts and red ales. Of course, these types of beer would not be very pleasant for someone who is just starting to drink beer.

    The beer that I started on was Brahma. Brahma is a Brazillian pale lager, and has a lighter/sweeter taste than most beers. Served ice-cold, this beer is very refreshing and easy to drink.

    I was thinking along the line's of Pure Blonde. I myself like to drink ale's and stout's (Cooper's pale and sparkling ale and Toohey's New) These are aussie beer's.

    I am not too sure of the price of Pure blonde because it was 'shouted' when I tried it, but hopefully it's something you like and you can afford too.

    Let us know what you ended buying.

    Take Care

    Oh, and another thing, some of us aussie like to do, is to have what we call a 'shandy'...that's beer mixed with 1/4 lemonade......it's preety nice, you should try it. Maybe mix more lemonade than beer.

    Amstel light is the easiest beer for SWIM to drink, He also loves Bud Light and Mich Ultra when on a budget,

    As far as I know, no one I ever knew enjoyed beer the first times they tried it. It's something you become used to and then grow to enjoy. As for type of beer, everyone is different. Have a look around mate.

    Crystal, if you order it is a light Cuban beer that tastes excellent.

    I would have to say give Cider a go. Much more drinkable than beer for SWIM.

    To Woodman's utter annoyance and disbelieve I am a beer barbarian and cant stand the taste of it. One beer may make me nauseous and several may give me a headache. So I didn't drink beer at all.

    However this has chanced since I was introduced to Paulaner beer. A sweet white beer with a mild taste. I am still not much of a beer drinker, but an occasional Paulaner is very nice.

    I'd suggest wheat beers such as Erdinger. Refreshing!

    There's a lot of not-so-strong tasting beer around. You might wanna try BUSCH. But I'm not very familiar with all the other beer brands in the US.

    There is a strawberry beer that taste's magnificent but I can't remember the name of it right now.

    But I have to say that I agree with Deiwos cider is king....particularly a swedish lime cider called herljunga if you can find it.

    strawberry beer is among the most foul drinks ever created, along with raspberry beer, apricot beer, and those caffeinated berry beers that were big a few years back

    Miller is what I sometimes drink to soften my stomach up in preparation for the onslaught of vodka and shots. It's pretty disgusting, however.
