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).

0,33 l bottle, batch 136. A dark red golden in the glass, nice head. Like a smooth IPA on the nose. Starts with herb and bitter grapefruit, malt in the background. Later a lot of longlasting watery cardboard and citrus dish soap. Wasted 3,49 Euro.

Rated on 4-25-2010 (Label: Batch 484 and Best before: 15/01/211) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy beige head with a short retention, deep orange body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is malt, citrus, pine, and bitter hops. The taste is lightly bitter, earthy and a subtle hint of malt. This beer has a moderate dry finish. The palate is thin and this beer is light bodied. Overall, the aroma is more pleasing than the weird flavor. This beer left me not wanting it again.

Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je opravdu výrazné a krásné chmelové se silným nádechem ananasu a oříšků. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je tmavší opálová. Chuť je minerální, vodová, nepříliš výrazná, finiš je výrazně hořký a držící, nepříliš příjemný. Od tohoto piva jsem čekal trochu víc, bohužel jeho prázdnou chuť nezachrání ani jeho krásné aroma.

Ferris (8945) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle - Some spicey malts like caraway and rye with a punch of hops. Clear amber with a thin beige head. Hoppy bitterness without alot of the hops but quite a bit of the grains. A lingering spiciness that is actually not bad. Much better than I anticipated.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Clear amber/brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of malts, tropical fruits, hops. Flavour is fruits and hops, with a nice bitter aftertaste. Thin and watery. Not bad for a 0.5%.

Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Junio de 2011. Una de las mejores cervezas sin alcohol que he probado. Un cuerpo ligero con 0.5 vol y un increíble sabor a hervaceos y lupulo, aunque claro sin la chispa del alcohol. Regusto amargo contenido pero bueno también. Muy buena en su estilo.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Small white head with hoppy aroma. Caramel colored body. Much less hops in the taste, thus a bit deceiving because it lacks thickness in mouth. Still a good alternative to untasty non alcoholic beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color: nice clear amber beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: good herbal and spices notes with hoppy presence and malt touch. Taste: great taste, really tasteful with malt and hops equilibrium. Floral and herbal presence. Aftertaste: watery taste with really sweet bitterness notes.

Delikat utseende, mřrk gylden med medium skum. Humle og malt i duften, god. Smaken er mildt fruktig og malt. Lite ĺ by pĺ i munnfřlelelsen, og tynn/medium konsistens. Dog meget godt alternativ dersom du er pĺ vannvogna .
