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).

33cl bottle from Tesco, Camberley. Golden amber, with a loose cream head; richly hopped aroma, some citrus and birch wood; rather thin and watery, but with a good citrusy hop taste; and a rather thin finish. Great hops for a low alcohol beer.

Bärig, lätt blommig och citrusfylld doft. Smaken är ganska intensiv men kroppen är för klen. Eftersmaken ligger dock kvar rätt länge. Toppar klassen, helt klart.

puren (167) - POLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Prezentacja: ciemnobrązowe, piana obfita z drobnymi okami, opada do pierścienia, ładny lacing;
Aromat: cukierkowy toffi-owocowy, kwiatowy, po zabełtaniu warzywa i masło;
Smak: najpierw woda a potem poza goryczą nic nie ma w smaku, lekko kwiatowy posmak;
Odczucie: puste, zerowo nasycone;
Ogólnie: jakbym tonik z aromatem pił, słaaaaaaaaabe.

Pours dark brown with a short lived white head. Classic IPA aromas of citrus. Tastes surprisingly good for such a low ABV beer, but is let down by being too watery... nicest low alcohol beer I’ve tried though.

mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2015
330ml bottle from Tesco. Looks and smells like an IPA and initial taste is hoppy citrus and a bit floral. Not too bad and will come in handy on occasions but let down by being too watery. Decent attempt at a low alcohol ale though.

MonsterMagnet (446) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle, pours woody brown with a white head. Hoppy aroma, tangerine, weeds, initally relatively full mouthfeel, but very quickly turns very watery. Excellent low alcohol beer, but its not the real thing.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Humlig doft med lite bröd och bränt socker. Lätt och torr med liten beska.

angelkostvo (791) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 21, 2015
Light ruby colour, beige head. Aroma of hops, caramel. Taste is light bitter. Thin watery texture, light body, average to fizzy carbonation. Very good for a low alcohol beer.

TychoJames (381) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad åt det mörkare hållet med smutsvitt skum. Hulmefrisk doft som drar åt citrus och framförallt barr. Kavring. Smaken domineras av en kraftig beska men lite barr och citrus slår igenom.
