According to Duolingo the correct solutions are: Don't you like any eer? or Do you not like beer?

So there is a typo in the correct answer. I wrote: "Don't you like any beer?". But Duolingo website thinks the right answer is "Don't you like any eer?".

My suggestion, and i think it is very important, that you guys review your beta languages with your specialists and so stop this from happening.

My (wrong) answer was "Do you like no beer?" - I get that it's not very smooth in English, but technically the kein negates the beer and not the liking of it... doesn't it?

Sorry, it doesn't work in English at all.

Do you not like beer? and Don't you like beer? would be commmon english, the "any" is completely unnecessary.
