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).

Keg brewdog. Amber to lacy white head. Aroma is good, dry and fruity with orange and grape. Taste is a bit less good, grainy dry, but drinkable, but the lack of alcohol is evident. Tingly carb and medium body.

StueyD (1305) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
A deep copper coloured beer with a thick white head. A strong hop aroma on opening the bottle lasts for a long time. Loads of pithy citrus fruit and grassy. Dry and thin mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma. Very strong hop flavour, pithy grapefruit and lime flavours, plus a grassy element. The finish is strong and hoppy but is very thin.

Powerfully hopped ale without a body. This beer is imbalanced, plain bitter. But it proves that’s not only the alcohol content that makes a beer too strong. (And that a bit more of alcohol is beneficial for a matching body for that kind of hopocalypse.)

Full copper, small head. Nose is hops with notes of oak, bad scent. Taste is flat with some smoke-oak, bitterness. Just put it in the toilette!

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Poured a clear, bright amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of grassy hops, biscuit and spruce. Light mouthfeel, with an upfront hop bitterness in the flavour and some brown sugar. Finish is kinda where it lacks the depth of an alcoholic beer; it’s very light and minerally. However, this is pretty superb for an alcohol free beer.

Desverger (2595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Streatham, London - dark amber pour with white head. Aroma and taste is light citrus and malty, sweet caramel malts, light hoppy, impressive amount of taste for such a low abv brew.

ElManana (648) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Dark orange, almost brown, no head. Aroma: malts, mandarin, hops. Taste: very pleasant mouthfeel, packs quite a pucnh for the ABV. Grass, hops and malts, also some metal. This beer deserves much more credit that it gets.

Pours a clear darker amber color, topped with an average off-white head. Citrusy hopps are easily picked up and very pleasant. Body is a little flat, sweet and watery with nice and easy hoppy bitterness going in the aftertaste. Nice and tasty
