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 Asahiya. Big hoppy nose, lots of citrus and grass, pine and hay. Light caramel is also somehow coming through, plus coffee. Deep amber. Brown with a fluffy, low head. Looks great. Very light malt, flavor, lots of coffee, like the ground somewhat, hay, grass, pine. Certainly not as nice as the nose, but still likeable, and full of character. Very bitter finish. Body is surely too light but hey, that’s life. The finish is a bit astringent and nasty, though. The best 0.5% beer I’ve had by a long ways. I would drink it all the time if I could get it cheaply (I mean soda prices!)

Bottle from Bierzwerg. Dark brown colour with medium head. Lot of hops is aroma. Flavour is bitter, watery, hoppy. Might not wanna drink many of these on same night thought.

olio (6142) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 22, 2012
33 cl bottle.
Rated on 20110605.
Pours dark copper color with medium-sized head. Aroma of mild hoppy fruits. Flavor of dry hay and fruits. Very bitter palate. Surprisingly good.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes pas très francs de houblon résineux et herbacé et de malt caramélisé. Robe cuivrée et limpide, effervescence assez faible et aucune mousse. En bouche, sans surprise, la bière se montre très mince, mais c’est surtout une forte saveur métallique qui dérange. Le houblon n’apparaît pas très franc. On retrouve des saveurs caramélisées assez fortes, surtout si on tient compte du corps très léger de cette bière. Une expérience intéressante, mais pas nécessairement réussie.

Overall I liked this beer. Nice hoppy nose with a rich dark colour. Has flavour up front, but alas it disappears too quickly and is too thin. But then again what do you expect from a light beer. One of the better ones.

Kronebryg (1040) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2012
Little head, semi lasting, dark golden. Nice hoppy nose to the dry side. Light body an medium length. Quite thin/watery and dry/hoppy taste, Actually better than expected. Could be a fav. driving home-beer.

jonno (2290) - JAPAN - MAR 10, 2012
Beautiful full hoppy nose - dry hopped with two of my more favourite varities. Pours a dark brown with nice pillowy head. Taste is strange, but strangely enjoyable. Like diswasher liquid mixed with hop juice and a nice hoppy finish. Pretty good for what it sets out to be - can’t really expect any more.

Bosskie (382) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2012
old copper colour with a bubbly head and lively carbonation. Smells delicious: lichees, grapefruit and bitter hoppiness. Some zest too. Dry and watery with an extremely bitter resin finish! Dies quickly but leaves you a nice refreshing feel. Surprisingly good considering the low alcohol... first time I drink a low alcohol beer that not only tastes like beer but is actually quite good.

Disgusting watery beer with a nasty bitter after taste. Bordering of undrinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
