This is a sentence which needs to be closely followed up by- ".....in fact - i LOVE beer!!!"

It says "is maith liom anraith" It is hard to say I don't like beer out loud in fairness

The positive statement is "Is maith liom beoir," literally "Is good with-me beer." So the negative here, "Ní maith liom beoir," literally means "Not(-is) good with-me beer."
