That's actually a really good sequence. But maybe before Newcastle have her try a Summer Ale, maybe one with a lot of character like Sam Adams' Summer Ale

I don't know.... I can't think of any summer ale that has LESS flavor than a Newcastles.

I literally CANNOT taste that beer.

Go to the BJCP's Style Guidlines and go down the list of styles. There are commercial examples of each style, so if you can get one and not another, you should be able to try every style.

I'd probably start with some light hybrid beers such as Kolsch, Blondes and Cream Ales. Those are great beers for a starting point IMO.

I'll give the Hoegaarden another +1, tasty stuff, and another +1 on the Dundee's Honey Brown. When my sister lived with me she loved it and brought it home all the time.

Try Newcastle and/or Samuel Smiths Brown Ale or Oatmeal Stout. Bells Oberon and/or Amber would be good choices too.

Funny you should say that, my sister who hates beer LOVES a specific fruity lambic ale
