Default What should I get?

I figured I would ask the community since by the way it sounds, there are more than enough people here to recommend me something interesting to try.

What I am asking for is what beer I should get for a novice drinker. Since I don't drink much at all, I know that I don't have as much tolerance for alcohol. But at the same time, back when I was in high school, I did drink some things that would probably make Farva happy (yes, they were fruity drinks, get over it.)

I keep hearing about all the beers that Jitterbug and Nerves are raving about, but not sure which ones I would enjoy. I honesty have had little experience with beers since my parents would usually buy Coronas (which I drank a quarter of one night, without any lime, and handed to my mom saying "You finish it, I can't stand this") or having Budweiser's (since my parents did not believe in having "light" anything.)

I was planning on heading out tomorrow with one of my friends to a place to pick up something for his girlfriend's birthday, and wanted to pick up something for myself when we are there. So, what do you all think I should try to get? (a couple options would be good, in case they don't have some of them.)

I think a wheat beer would be safe, beer wise. Either Blue Moon or Hoegaarden if you want a really good fancy wheat. For more liqour-e drinks. Try Mead if you can get it where you are at. It is the Honey wine of the Gods. Sweet and pack one helluva punch.

Nerves gives good advice. Wheat is your best bet - all the alc with none of the bitterness.

Yep, I say go with a wheat beer as well. I'm surprised Nerves or Jitters didn't suggest Left Hand Brewery's Milk Stout. If the store has that, get it.

I did pick up some Blue Moon yesterday while out, and tried it out last night after I was done with everything. It was pretty good.

Thanks for the advice everyone.

If you haven't started drinking liquor yet then it's better not to start with it.

If anyone is near Portland, they should come to the Holiday Ale Festival with me this weekend! It's going to be a good time

Portland seems this the place to be when it comes to beer and a good city.

For my sins I keep on drinking Dandelion and Burdock with either vodka or whiskey.
The D&B tastes ok to me plus the Mrs won't drink it so I don't run out and the Whiskey or Vodka gets me a gentle buzz going.
