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).

Sad to notice that alcohol brings the body to the beer. This is basically hop water. Pretty nice aromas and all, but taste is just meh. Worth of trying though.

Golden color with medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is watery with hops bite.No body. Basically this is just water with hoppy taste.

For me, this is way, way the best non-alcoholic beer I have ever tasted. The only thing that lets it down is the initial aroma, which I find more mango than hops. Apart from that, it beats many alcoholic beers and it’s a wonderful pint. I absolutely congratulate Brewdog.

Bottle 330 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Dark amber with a short foam holding badly. Malted aromas, compote, varnish-pine, solvent, citrus. The mouth is fresh and bitter, dry, notes of biscuit, no sweetness, everything is based on bitter and light. Herbs-citrus-pine-medicine. Won’t let me an unforgettable memory !

This is far better than some alcholic IPAs that I’ve drank. Super hoppy, wonderfully refreshing. Just amazing.

(bottle) slightly hazy deep amber colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of mango, passion fruit and brown sugar, with big notes of caramel, some prickly pear, burnt toffee and honeymelon. flavour is mostly buttered crumpets and raisins, with a light hint of cherries, some treebark, grass and a light-bitter finish. very light-bodied with average carbonation.

Thuis. Hoppige dorstlesser! Ja het is waterig, ja de smaak is dun... Maar ook ja het is lekkerder dan elk alcoholvrij/arm bier dat ik ken.. Backlog from 2015/07/09.

Bottle from Tesco. I’m shocked because it actually tastes like beer, albeit somewhat watered down. Easily the best alcohol free (ish) beer I’ve had.

Bottle bbe 26.08.26. Nice fruity and caramelly aroma. Taste is water with hoppy bitterness, no body at all, long bitter finish. For 0,5% abv this is quite good but the missing body doesn’t make you wanna drink one after another.

Bier überrascht mit einer kastanienbraunen Farbe und schönen Schaum, toller blumig fruchtiger Geruch, im Geschmack relativ wässrig aber durchaus auch schöne fruchtige Hopfen im Abgang erstaunlich herb, das beste alkoholfrei das ich bisher hatte
