COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
And this time it is all about the beer, and the beer is awesome! Gone are the 200+ IBUs which brought grown men to tears! Our new Nanny State is 0.5% ABV and focuses on being a great drink as opposed to a great publicity ploy. This beer is now focussed on getting all that is good about BrewDog into a practically alcohol free format. It is a West Coast inspired pale ale with a difference!

The beer has 45 IBUS and is brewed with centennial, amarillo, columbus, cascade and simcoe and intensively dry-hopped with centennial and amarillo. The backbone is provided by 8 different types of speciality malts with only 87 kilos of malt used in a 20HL batch (our Punk IPA uses 450 kilos in 20HL).

Kolor miedziano br?zowy, klarowny. Piana wysoka, sztywna cho? z uwagi na budow? do naj?adniejszych nienale?y, Sporych rozmiarów oczka p?kaj?c tworz? co? na wzór piany po detergencie. Aromat intensywnie owocowy, s?odkie tropiki i cytrusy, prawdziwa bomba owocowa. Bardzo delikatna ?ywica i nuty metaliczne, których pochodzenie jest ewidentnie chmielowe. Smak podobnie jak wy?ej, mega owocowy z delikatn? ?ywic? w tle. Ponownie wyczuwalne nuty metaliczne. Goryczka sucha, troch? t?pa, trawiasta. Wysycenie ?rednie. Uwagi: bardzo "cienkie" piwo, mimo intensywnego aramatu i smaku owocowego, odnosi si? wra?enie ?e pije si? wod?.

Bottle @ DogTap Ellon. Being the designated driver, this beer is awesome. A low-alcohol beer with aroma and taste! Compared to low-alcohol lagers, this is out standing. Plenty of malts and hops and not watery. There is a slightly sour note in the taste, otherwise this would have been a top-scorer.

minihame2 (451) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2016
Vlear, dark brown colour and a frothy, tan head. Hoppy aroma, sweet bubblegum, some fruit. Somewhat bitter taste, dry finish, a bit soapy, hoppy aftertaste. Medium (on the lower end) body, light carbonation. It’s pretty good for such a low alcohol beer.

teddybeer (3330) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 25, 2016
Brown color with an off-white head, good retention. Aroma is hoppy with light toasted malts. Flavor is medium bittery, light toasted. Watery final. Not bad for a non alcohol beer

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Clear amber. A: carrot juice, medium exotic fruits, sweet malts. T: follows aroma, sweet maltiness is more pronounced. Lacks punch wrt mouthfeel because of low abv. Quite bitter in development and finish.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 The best low alcohol beer I have had. Dark amber color with big neck. Hoppy malty hay smell. Taste is fresh bitter hops with long bitter after taste. Ultra-enjoyable low alcohol IPA! Going to have a lot of sessions with it! Such a great alternative to the low alcohol lagers out there.

Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a tiny off white head that fades. Little carbonation. Aroma is strong and bitter, some caramel hints. The taste is watery and very bitter. Dry hops all the way, even stronger in the aftertaste.
