Default Light beer for the girlfriend

The girlfriend wants me to make her a light beer. Not hoppy. Any suggestions?
Thank you

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..

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.
