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).

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on noin 2 sormen paksuinen ja melko kuohkean näköinen. Haju on vahvan puumaisen ja greippisen humaloitu, lievää pähkinäisyyttäkin on joukossa, mutta humalointi on pääosassa. Maku jää jalkoihin, kuten odotettu. Se on jopa yllättävän pliisu. Jos nyt jotain koittaa kaivaa, niin sitruksinen humalointi on läsnä, ja hieman puumaisuuttakin on joukossa, mutta TODELLA vähän. Suutuntuma on vetinen ja humaloinnin tuomana hieman kitkerä, koska mallasrunkoa ei ole tukemassa. Haju on miellyttävä, mutta maku täysin tyhjä, vettä saa hanastakin ja siitä ei tarvitse maksaa kolmea euroa.

Smalle (221) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
Quite dark in color. Light brown / dark amber, but a bit more translucent. Nose: quite pleasant actually, American hop profile Taste: ok, quite watery of course, but still tasteful with lots of hops and bitterness. Conclusion: a very good softdrink

mike_77 (4800) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
Clear brown. Quite a hoppy aroma, fruity and floral. Body is thin and watery. Flavour has fruity hop but generally quite malty even with a touch of caramel. Pleasantly bitter. Would make for a good thirst quencher on a warm day.

Lowenbrau (2944) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 7, 2014
330ml bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. End of 2012.
A very tasty low ABV one. Some citrusy and grassy aromas. Taste is quite hoppy. Light body, average carbonation.

Backlog. Decent try for a non-alcoholic that actually tastes of something, too bad the dominant taste becomes a chemical hoppy-one that resembles a dishwasher.

JorisPPattyn (9084) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2014
Fluffy, dirty-cream coloured head over well-carbonated rusty orange beer. Exotic fruithops jumping out of the glass upon pouring, reinforced with exotic Thai herbs. Phenomenal nose, some caramel, generally speaking sweet-smelling. Bitter, slightly wry, wood or plywood; fruitiness is still there, but only a fraction from what was going on in the nose - even retronasal not very outspoken aromas. Finish has something of old dried meat and corroded metal. Obviously light, and, let’s face it, watery. Aftertaste regains some of the fruity hops. A tour de force, there’s no discussion here. The bitterness won’t allure kids, I’m afraid, but in my eyes, this ought to be the 21st century’s tafelbier to be poured to the youngster on holiday camps, schools, and the kitchen table.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Appearance: Clear amber/ruby with 3 finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Lychee, mango, apricot, grapefruit and musky. Taste: Very bitter, low sweet and sour. Palate: Smooth slightly grainy texture, light body, average carbonation, very dry, very bitter, tastes chemically. Comments: A touch disappointed but there was a glass lace. Too chemical.

RW80 (1789) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2014
Appearance: A derk red golden with a off white head, leaving some nice lacing Aroma: Tamerind, grapefruit Taste: Stringent bitter grapefruit, there are some thin traces of malt and herbs.. But the problem here is that it’s so thin and stringent.. medium carbonation, thin body If they could round the taste this would have been a excellent low alcohol beer. Now it’s a a good attempt of brewdog

Bottle at restaurant in Stockholm. An interesting experience of a low-alcohol beer, gives an impression overall of being stronger than it is.

MichaelAwesome (6289) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014
This one offers quite a crazy situation. Whole hoppy and citrus aroma with nearly no taste. And behind that not exisiting taste there is no body. Nice try to make a low abv beer. Yeah, try.
