They offered me a beer...

I went to put a talking book out for the roommate this afternoon and some of our neighbor's friends were talking. Well, its not that I'm not friendly - well, actually I'm not real friendly, but that's another story - but I don't often go over and chat with these guys. However, I had noticed that the for sale sign was gone from the crazy lady's house next door and I felt I ought to mention it. So I went over and was talking to these guys. Now, these are very nice guys and while we were talking, one of them drove up and got out with a new case of beer. He pulled one out and offered it to me. Now, I don't like beer. I have never liked beer. In the last 38 years I've probably put away 1 whole can of beer - in 3 tries and because there wasn't any thing else cold to drink around - and as soon as the chill went off, it was beyond unpleasant, right to nasty. I'm not saying that other people don't like the stuff, I just never got a taste for it. I have to say that I hated kissing my folks good night when they were drinking beer because I didn't like the smell, so my dislike for the stuff started early. Now, I know my friends across the pond like their stout (and one of those tries that make up the whole can of beer includes tasting Guinness - and that was the worst of the lot) and they like it WARM! So, do you like beer? Am I the odd man out on this beer thing (oh, my roomie also doesn't like it, but she doesn't like any booze.) Please tell me if I am or am not - and if you like the stuff, what kind do you like and why? Am I missing something here?

I can not stand the stuff!!! I have tried a few different ones like you say because of the same reasons, it was the only cold thing around to drink and I wanted to be sociable. But it is hard to be sociable when you are drinking something that taste as thought it came from a foul stench in a wading pool somewhere. Sorry those of you that like the stuff and that does include my husband. I won't kiss him when he's been drinking the stuff. I just can not stand the smell or the taste of it even the after taste left on his lips...uuuuuugh. Uuuuh gag me.
