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).

Bottle from supermarket. Deep sold colour fizzy white head. Big hoppy aroma and a very bitter finish. Not get a great depth of flavour or complexity but for a no alcohol beer it’s great.

Clear deep amber color, thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, some fruitiness, malt, flowers. Taste of... Well, water. Light touch of caramel, citrus, grass and tea. Light body, soft to average carbonation. Not good.

Bottle. Brown body with tan head. Aroma is fruity with citrus and pines. Taste is thin with some malts and hints of caramel and water. Aftertaste is bitter with hints of malts. Best alcohol free I ever had.

minutemat (2503) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours amber with bubbly off-white head. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is rather light and airy citrus with a bitter finish. Obviously not going to be a hop-bomb. But for what it is, it’s alright.

Well what do you expect? It’s never going to be amazing but for a driving option it’s pretty damn good.

not a fan, i don’t taste anything about hops and something that remind me mineral water. It’s ok, i think, for the style.

mcberko (9339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Nose brings out light biscuity notes with only a touch of hops. Flavour is quite rancid really, with metallic notes and biscuity malt, with a harsh astringency on the finish. Why would you ever drink this? Quite gross really. Drain pour.

ChtiBreizh (150) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2015
Golden copper. Almost no head. watery body but fair amount of hops. There is an aftertaste of cardboard that i don’t like. Overall it is a good performance for a hoppy low alcohol beer.

ForlornHope (196) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Looks like coke when poured, thin white head. The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of pine, like floor cleaner. The taste is pretty bad, some malt and then a rasping, harsh bitterness that makes the throat contract. Thin palate and little carbonation. Overall - undrinkable. If you need an alcohol-free drink, try coffee. Or fruit juice, water, anything but this.

weordie (328) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Pours a nice copper with a thick foamy head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is tropical fruits. Very watery palate, vit of a bitter taste with not much pay off.
