Try Shipyard Low Tide. I also think that Adnams Ghost Ship is a near miss.
But, what do you really need? If it's virtually no alcohol, then buy Ghost ship and stir in a good teaspoon of maltodextrin. Body increased, too much carbonation gone in one fell swoop!
But, if you only want low-alcohol beer (i.e. 2% to 3%) then buy Brewdog Hazy Jane and mix it with either Shipyard Low Tide or Punk AF.

Clausthaler is one of the best I've had

Hoegaarden 0.0% is decent perhaps a little on the fruity/sweet side but it's refreshing

Erdinger is good

Bavaria shandy ain't too bad

Not really keen on the low alcohol ales, always feels like there is something missing imo, but then I don't like "session ales" either.

Since alcohol forms part of the drinking experience - mouthfeel, aroma etc AF beers can never taste like their alcoholic brethren. If I'm the des on the night, I'll avoid them altogether and drink OJ and lemonade.
