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).

Tinco (581) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a clear brown with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hoppy, twiggy, pine, floral, "knäckebröd", fruity. Taste: very bitter, notes of "knäckebröd", hops, very watery mouthfeel (as expected). Very unbalanced. An OK low ABV brew that would benefit with a slightly more heavy body...

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2013
This is one weird and good brew. Massive aroma, floral hops, spices, pine. Extremely piney down the stretch. Coppar with a firm fluffy head. Body is light when it hits the tongue but the amount of bitterness and carbonation balance makes up for it and makes this a good brew. Very tasty and something I will buy more off.

Bottle @ buitenlust. Aroma is big big hops, some bready caramel. Flavour has strong hop bitterness, mild malt note. Very impressive for .5!

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle, Csakajosor. Poured amber with an off-white head. Pine, citrus, grapes in the aroma. Light taste and body (as expected), with a bitter finish. Pretty good.

hackobock (1979) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget. Amber with a small white head. Aroma is fresh hops, grapefruit, pine, grass, some metallic notes, some roasted notes. Taste is mainly bitter with a piney bitter and watery finish. Body is thin. Good for being a non-alcoholic brew.

zacgillbanks (2811) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle from BrewDog website. A dark brown beer with a strong red fruity and hoppy flavour, roasted, chocolate and marmalade notes with a slight ’thin’ but very hoppy finish. Superb considering its almost non-existent alcohol content.

Holmen1 (3136) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
Flaske fra Polet: nydelig farge, flott skum som varer og herlig, intens aroma av amerikanske humler (grapefrukt og furunĺl). Et meget interessant alkoholfritt řl, men den har ingen maltkropp til ĺ balansere all den herlige humlen. Blir derfor veldig bitter, og ettersmaken er bare metallisk.

ogreface (1387) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 1, 2013
csakajosor:hu Sötétebb, kicsit vöröses, aranysárga színe van, aminek a tetejét egy sokszor mosott gatya fehér színű, közepes méretű, nagy buborékos hab díszíti, de csak korlátozott ideig. Illata fenyőrügyes, szőlős, kissé élesztős és visszafogott. Ízében is érezni a fenyőgyantás aromát, olyan, mintha friss fenyőgallyakat főztek volna meg teának, sok vízzel, hozzá adagoltak volna egy kis édes, szagos szőlőt, hogy ne legyen annyira keserű és egy kis élesztőt, hogy ne legyen annyira édes + megfejelték volna egy jó adag komlóval amcsi komlóval, hogy legyen min csodálkozni. Teste, na az nincs, viszont buborékokkal elvan látva rendesen. Utóíze vékony, kesernyés. Na, ez az általam eddig kóstolt egyetlen igazán iható alkoholmentes sör. Vannak még csodák!

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 28, 2013
Pale amber body with particles and a small white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and caramel, as well as lemon, peach and honey. Surprisingly nice flavour for such a low abv beer, very dry hoppy with grapefruit, pine.

Yes the beer you can drink anyway. But feel awkward and boring. Sad attempt to make a beer. The scent is thin like the taste. The aftertaste is detingen clue of.
