Default Need help figuring out what to brew

I cant figure out what to brew. I don't like hoppy beers, and I have some what of a sweet tooth. am I willing to do something different.

I just can't figure it out. I find dead guy to be boring and not really that great. Its not really complex to me. I tasted life and limb the other day and loved it, but I would love a session brew.

Help

What is your favorite commercial "session brew"?

Why not just brew something light like a wheat, mild, pale ale or a brown? I mean, there are a ton of beers out there that have a ton of flavor and very little body to make a session brew. Go with something easy like a hefeweizen, stout or a brown ale. Keep it about 1.050 and there you have it. Easy to drink, low hops and still tastes like a flavorfull beer.
