Mine would be a thin bodied Irish Red poured into a Pilsner glass from a 22oz bomber.

I have no idea what I'd be.

I'll have to think about this one. My SWMBO is quite complex and to tune her into just one brew may take some research. What ever it is; I am sure it will either leave you with a nasty headache or the runs.:confused:

I think you missed the point its not what you want, its what you got now.

If I had to do it all over again...

I'd get me a Pilsner, served in a stemmed chalice straight from the tap. :D

Mine would be a medium bodied Irish Red Ale served in a 22oz. pilsner glass on tap all the time. Which also happens to be my favorite beer.... it was meant to be!

Although some of my ex's would be a warm, skunked Beast Light, shotgunned from a can...

Mine would be a German Hefeweizen poured from a naturally conditioned half liter bottle that was rolled with the last 2 ounces in it to get the rest of the hefe into a appropriate hefeweizen glass with a nice fluffy head.

It's too bad that as most these beers age they become heavier bodied and astringent. ;)

I refuse to answer this question because any answer I give will be misconstrued.

I could say, "she's like a pilsner because she's always clean, refreshing, and a beautiful sight on a hot summer day." :D

She would hear, "she's tasteless, lame, and boring like a Budweiser." :confused:

- I know this doesn't actually fit the criteria, but you get the point -

I've got it!... I know what she would be! She would be a Belguim Wheat spiced with dry schizocarp and fresh squeezed orange, garnished with a slice of orange served in a schooner.:rockin:

Not quite as pungant as coriander(cilantro). Acutally, shizocarp is the fruit from the coriander plant. It's like a seed. It would have to been ground up like a coffee bean and used very lightly as a finishing garnish. You could mince up some dried leaves from the plant, but I think they would be WAY to strong.

SWMBO is totally on tap 24/7....and the kegs never run out. On tap we have a delicious medium bodied IPA.....my favorite beer, and favorite woman, and there is definitely a possibility she's hopped in a 90-120 minute boil....she's hardcore!

she said: (american) hefeweizen from draft to a pint glass

i said: a medium-bodied cream ale in the same vessel (maybe just a 5L jug)

i'll have to get brewing so we can have a taste-off to decide.
