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 - clear fizzy amber brown. Large off white head. Hoppy floral aroma, bit of a ting on the tongue and in mouth. Lacking a bit of depth in taste, but ok for low Alcohol.

josanguapo (885) - SPAIN - MAR 6, 2016
At Bar Maquilla, with stew of ox with imperial stout and rice with duck. Lunch with the family. Very good in aroma, creating a great expectation. However, the taste isnt as good, a bit muted compared with the superb nose.

GlasgowTAD (1212) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Pours deep caramel/amber with a lively cream head which fizzes away. Aroma is grassy, earthy and sprucey. Taste is grassy, earthy, slight citrus bitterness. Medium-high bitterness. Pretty hoppy for a low-alco.

Turtles (1555) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2016
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a medium sized white head, some lacing. Hoppy nose, citrus zest, grapefruit and pineapple. Light and thin but still not too bad for a low abv, dry and crisp. The taste is thinner than the aroma, floral bitterness, citrus and a some unclean bitterness in the finish with metallic notes.

SkillsFactory (478) - ITALY - FEB 22, 2016
Ambrata limpida con riflessi dorati, schiuma beige non molto persistente. Aroma di pompelmo e passion fruit. Al palato leggero pompelmo ed una coda estremamente amara, anche troppo, che ricorda il legno e la camomilla. Ovviamente priva di corpo ma ben carbonata.

Towey1989 (1510) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of bready malts, some caramel, slight melon, a little orange, pine and subtle herbal hops. Taste of bready malts, some caramel, slight orange, a little melon, subtle pine, a hint of wood and herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, dry, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Its not watery like you would expect. Good bitterness and subtle sweetness. Would never guess it only contains 0.5 alcohol.

Shanshirohop (86) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2016
La mejor cerveza sin alcohol que he probado sin duda. Con cuerpo, matices herbceos sobre fondo tostado... una gozada para los que no pueden beber alcohol.

jasonbenali (92) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2016
Pours copper t brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is reasonably hoppy mix of mango, caramel, tangerine, orange peel and mint. Some bitterness and sweetness with a lingering thin finish. It may be thin but its very decent low alcohol beer - just try the competition!

heman (509) - Tychy, POLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Barwa bursztynowa, piana ładna trwała. Aromat chmielowy, niedojrzałe cytrusy i tytoń. W smaku bardzo wodniste, wyraźną, tytoniową goryczką.
