Looking for a good, quality beer that has low IBU (low bitterness)

LeoNYC | Dec 17, 201009:35 AM     50

I would love to find a regular, good quality beer like Sam Adams Boston Lager, but that one that is not as bitter as Sam Adams (it has IBU of about 30).

I am aware of the wheat bears and Belgian-style witbiers and I like those, but they have a different, if not peculiar taste. I would hope to find a regular non-wheat beer that has a bitterness level similar to that of the wheat beer (IBU below 20).

I tried Leffe Blond recently - that was not bitter, but it was way too syrupy for my taste.

I know that bitterness is something most beer drinkers enjoy. But I do not.

Would appreciate any suggestions.
