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).

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle 0.33l. Pours copper to brown with a off white head. Aroma is typical IPA. Lots of hops, resin etc.. So far very good. Taste is medium bitter, no sweetness. Hop and fruit flavour is reduced. Of course the alcohol is missing but nevertheless a really good alcohol free (almost) beer.

Drank from a bottle at home. A very interesting beer! It tastes like a normal, well hopped beer but misses the kick of alcohol.

DruncanVeasey (7854) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Pours chestnut with a low rocky beige collar. Deeply aromatic with a huge waft of mango, overripe melon and lychee over background coffee bean roast and citrus. Fine soapy hop aggressive with grapefruit and tropical citrus; coffee again, a shaving of nut, truffle-like bitterness. Only the roundedness, finish and buzz of alcohol is missing. Now, if they could just master a calorie and alcohol-free IPA that gets you shit-faced...

Gedronken bij dutchdrebus. Kleur is bruin van kleur en helder. Ruikt hoppig en fris. Smaakt wel hoppig en bitter maar vooral ook waterig.

Hops and a little citrus. Normal bodied. Bitter, dry with a long aftertaste.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 Bottle at The Broker in Oslo. Resin and pine shavings and sap and all of that. Has some cola malz and peanuts notes with a strong toasted brown malt. Harsh and astringent hop bitterness with prickly and lively hop acid. Grapefruit juice, wood, nuts (Chinook?), some dog food malt and a touch of artificial sweetener. Sourish, grainy, husky amber malt finish. The body is interesting, though it’s thin for sure, as expected, but it’s full enough to work. The Christmas tree pine resin note is off-putting but I commend BrewDog for pulling off such a low gravity beer with so much malt character.

Insanely hopped indeed. Like an Ipa but it is somewhat watered down unfortunately. The Emelisse 2.5 might have 2 percent more alcohol but is a masterpiece where this is just good. Bottle at the Twaalf Balcken in Den Burg.

@ Ölkväll o bryggning i Källna (15/11-13). Flaska från Systembolaget (12:-). Trevlig, humlig doft med med citrustoner. Smaken däremot är som välhumlat vatten med en löjligt stor beska. Eftersmaken är bara besk.
