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).

Spralleman (3) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014 does not count
This is important! It’s 0,5%! Brewdog proves successfully that it’s possible to create an excellent beer with almost no alcohol in it. It’s a taste of a warm summer night. Flowers, citrus and hops. Lots of hops! As they say: "Plug in, kick back and enjoy as we welcome to the stage the world’s first low ABV beer officially cranked up to 11"

vtafro (2465) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle. (from sweden not too sure which rating is correct) Golden pour with white head. Hoppy aroma, grassy, herbal and spice tones. Flavors follow although a bit light on body, not surprising. Almost the best "beer" of the night even though its .5%.

tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours orange brown with a medium head. Aroma is dusty toffee and piney mango hops. Taste has carbonated water and toffee, with a little bitter resin in the finish.

Au palais, houblon et citron mais malheureusement le faible taux d’alcool nuit à la longueur en bouche.

radzik5555 (198) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Butelka 0.3L. Bursztynowe, klarowne. Piana biała, średniopęcherzykowa, szybko dziurawi się i opada. Aromat głównie amerykańskich chmieli, żywiczny, owocowy, średniointensywny. Do tego aromaty karmelowe. W smaku dziwne, wyraźna goryczka ale taka papierowa, nieprzyjemna i poza chmielem niewiele. Odczucie w ustach bardzo wodniste, wręcz suche, nieprzyjemne, zupełnie nie przypominające piwa i drażniące. Pachnie jak IPA a smakuje jak napar z chmielu. Woda z goryczką. Bardzo dziwne wrażenie. Raczej nie warto, choć pomysł na mocno chmielone amerykańskim chmiele piwo bezalkoholowe bardzo mi się podoba.

djoeye (926) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
Aroma; lots of hops, resin, pine, citrus peel, and malts of some caramel or roasted sweet type. Modest head, dark amber to copper coloured beer, some steps of lacings. Taste; resin style, hops, grassy smooth stuff, malts in the background, some caramel hints. To palate very smooth, lively carbonation. Finishes slightly sticky, slightly dry, still the hops playing a bitter role, with notes of roasted caramel malts, lingering a bit on the way. Really decent for a low-alcohol alternative. 33cl brown btl 0.5%abv.

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on noin 2 sormen paksuinen ja melko kuohkean näköinen. Haju on vahvan puumaisen ja greippisen humaloitu, lievää pähkinäisyyttäkin on joukossa, mutta humalointi on pääosassa. Maku jää jalkoihin, kuten odotettu. Se on jopa yllättävän pliisu. Jos nyt jotain koittaa kaivaa, niin sitruksinen humalointi on läsnä, ja hieman puumaisuuttakin on joukossa, mutta TODELLA vähän. Suutuntuma on vetinen ja humaloinnin tuomana hieman kitkerä, koska mallasrunkoa ei ole tukemassa. Haju on miellyttävä, mutta maku täysin tyhjä, vettä saa hanastakin ja siitä ei tarvitse maksaa kolmea euroa.

Smalle (67) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
Quite dark in color. Light brown / dark amber, but a bit more translucent. Nose: quite pleasant actually, American hop profile Taste: ok, quite watery of course, but still tasteful with lots of hops and bitterness. Conclusion: a very good softdrink

Clear brown. Quite a hoppy aroma, fruity and floral. Body is thin and watery. Flavour has fruity hop but generally quite malty even with a touch of caramel. Pleasantly bitter. Would make for a good thirst quencher on a warm day.
