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).

Bottle from a tap takeover swag bag. Deep amber pour. Big grapefruit and tropical aroma. Flavour is very light. By far the best alcohol-free beer I’ve ever had.

Rated as low-alcohol. Great taste and aroma characteristic for hoppy beers, maybe too much watery, but this is the only flaw.

I bought this beer at the.drink of the worldmin Geneva and.I drank it in Paris. For a beer without alcohol, it is decent one, we could say an I.P.A without alcohol. The body is copper and regular carbonation, thin foam. The taste is refreshing, hop giving a perfect bitter note, citrus, watery.

How successful this beer is depends on your point of reference. Compared to standard ales, it might not stack up too well, but compared to any other alcohol free beer it’s a revelation. It actually tastes like beer! Hoppy, citric, a little floral, robust hoppy bitter finish. OK, so it lacks body and depth, but this is definitely a step in the right direction for alcohol free beers.

330ml bottle (thanks Elvira). Dark amber color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Fruity, citrus, tropical fruits in aroma. Citrus, fruity and very watery in aftertaste. Very watery mouthfeel. It’s something.

Flaske 0,33L fra Extra i Hamna. Klar mørk brun litt rødlig med lyst beige skum. Malt, humle, mildt lett bitterhet. Fin fylde til alkoholfritt. En god øl

suurjuust (2770) - ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle shared by Elvira. This is hop water with the usual BD citric and resiny hop profile, but without any malt to balance it, so it’s kinda sharp.

Smakrik alkoholfri öl. Stor bitterhet från humlen, men också lite brödig maltighet. Helt ok.
