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).

Amber coloured beer with off-white head. Full fruity hop aroma. Taste is missing some depth but the hop makes up for it. Not bad at all.

tlind2 (1554) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Hoppy aroma with hints of pine and cookies. Watery, hoppy flavor with a lingering bitter finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Sadly the flavor doesn't equal the appealing aroma and the beer comes off as uneven. Not sure when I'd choose this over a non-alcoholic pils or lager.

Kahuna1337 (41) - Mariehamn, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Amber colour with small white head. Aroma is very hoppy, hints of tropical fruits. Medium bitterness with a light initial sweetness. Light bodied, thin texture, nice bitter finish though.

MSBrindbergs (664) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Flaska från SB. Klar brungul vätska med beige lätt krona. Mycket fin doft av humlen, tropiskt och citrus. Smaken är inte jättekul dock, det märks liksom att alkoholen saknas och den blir blaskig. Bra alkofritt alt dock!

Ibrew2or3 (8040) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2014
33cl bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a thin dirty white head. The aroma offers up malts mixed with pine hops and grassy hops and some spicy hoppiness. It smells alright. The taste begins with malty near neutral notes and then very quickly gets down to business with resiny pine and grassy hops as well as lesser notes of spicy to floral to slightly grapefruit like. It ends a little watery but it does provide a nice hoppy ride.

mikkopen (1040) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin off-white head. Nice aroma of pine and caramel, some tropical fruity notes in there as well. The flavour is a little tea-like, very bitter, with resiny and citrusy hops and no maltiness at all. Thin and watery. Nice statement, but unfortunately not a very enjoyable beer.

Kuparisen ruskea olut valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on Brewdogmaisen hedelmäinen ja purkkainen. Myös makeaa mallasta. Maku on hieman katkera ja metallinen. Vähän on vetinen ja mauton, mutta onhan tämä alkoholittomaksi oikein hyvä olut. Etenkin tuoksu tekee vaikutuksen.
