Default Beer Recipe that dosn't taste like beer

I have a freind who has been instructed by a Docter to drink 5 beers a day
only problem is she doesn't like the taste of beer. We all need a Docter like that. But back to the problem. Does anyone have a recipe for a beer that really doesn't taste like beer. I thought my chocolate stout would be good but my wife says it tastes like beer. It tastes like chocolate to me. I don't want to experiment a lot on something that I will have to drink or worst pour out.

Try some belgian beers. They rarely taste like beer as we know it. Especially lambics. BTW, how do I make an appointment with that doctor?

I have to ask... why would her Dr. suggest drinking 5 beers a day? That seems like quite a lot to really be healthy. (If it's personal or just 'none of my business', that's fine... don't respond.)

Something like Lindeman's Frambois tastes nothing like beer to me. I would never recommend an american light lager that's full of corn like bud, coors, or miller. They might not taste very "beery" but they are nasty! By the way, I lump Yuengling Lager into that nasty type of beer as well. That's a pee beer in disguise!

This has got to be the wierdest thread on this entire forum.
5 beers a day?
A beer that doesn't taste like beer?

Has this sick person or whatever ever tried something called WINE?
Maybe this person should try and find a new doctor as well.

Lindemann's lambics are tasty (if not entirely traditional), and don't taste real "beery". My wife is not a beer fan, but she loves that stuff. Also, most of those drinks that are supposedly made by liquor companies (like Bacardi Silver, Smirnoff Ice, etc) are just flavored malt liquor. Might not work, depending on what she's supposed to be getting from her beer regimen.

The 5 beer a day thing sounds kinda odd to me too, though.

What's even weirder is normally sane people questioning a legitimate reason to drink five beers a day.

I'd go for something like Mike's Hard Lemon...it doesn't taste like beer at all, but technically it kind of is.
