The girlfriend wants me to make her a light beer. Not hoppy. Any suggestions?
Blonde ale or a cream ale possibly?
Calories, color, or taste ya think?
I'm a fan of witbiers for such people. Does she like Blue Moon/Hoegaarden?
If you can lager, a simple 100% pilsner malt with mild hallertau hops is a miller light, look under light lager in recipes. my wife loves it and my BMC friends say it is the best beer...... Go figure..
My wife likes a Heffe.
"Stupid Should Hurt"
I've done some fruit beers with a heff base that the women seem to love, how the buddies will like it is a whole other thing tho.

The "Lawnmower Ale" from The Home Brewery, is really good for this task, easy to produce and tastes better than BMC.
Easy kit to brew too.
