Readers: A beer for women? Think Zima. Think Virginia Slims.

Readers have been pouring out the jokes since Molson Coors announced that it will release Animee, a beer geared towards female non-beer drinkers, in the UK.

From Claire:

The Virginia Slims of the beer biz.

From eCurmudgeon:

Otherwise known as Zima with a new label.

Molson Coors studied 30,000 in the UK, according to spokeswoman Kristy McCready. But UGH thinks they might have been the wrong women:

i cannot speak for UK women, but it seems to me that you polled stupid women. All the women I know drink beer. Yes, many of my friends drink crap beer - a la Coors Light. But many, such as myself, love beer and seek out good beer.

I find this whole thing insulting. On the other hand, my female in laws only drink cheap shit rose -- with ice in it. I guess this is geared to "those" kind of women.

Could Animee make it in America? Pour out your own thoughts below.

Did we not elect George Bush.....twice? Don't give the American public too much credit. If "concept" restaurants like Quaker Steak and Lube, TGIF and Hooters can make it, nasty concept beers can too.


LOL, that shows there are still smart people in the electorate. But unfortunately the tide of ignorant retards won in 2008 and elected our current, disastrous president.
