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).

Pours an amber color with a crème head. Aroma is full of citrussy hops, limes and passion fruit. Of course it is, cause it’s a Brewdog. The taste is a dry bitter, crispy. The taste itself isn’t full at all, but the loads of hops give this beer a more than reasonable aftertaste. Leaves a roasted taste at the back of the tongue and a mouthful of hops. Easily drinkable. Weak for an IPA, but as far as low ABV beers are concerned Nanny State is king.

Amber with bit head. Nice explosive hoppy aroma, citrus resin and herbal. Ligh body and strong bitterness, so drinkable but nice beer!

Lawger (271) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Intense hoppy aroma with scents of citrus, flowers, mango puré and a light roasted scent. Palate is thin with a huge bitterness. A slight toffee flavour and grapefruit peel. Interesting beer, but more of a hop extract then anything else. No balance at all.

Flaska från systembolaget. Helt klart den bästa alkoholfria ölen jag druckit. Mycket humle och en hel del bitterhet men ändå saknas lite djup sol alkoholen annars ger.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2014
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et lille skumhoved. Stor duft af citrus humle. Virkelig overraksende og lækkert. Tynd mundfylde som forventet men med en fin humlet smag af citrus. Overraskende god.

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 (1589) - 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.
