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).

mikkopen (820) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin off-white head. Nice aroma of pine and caramel, some tropical fruity notes in there as well. The flavour is a little tea-like, very bitter, with resiny and citrusy hops and no maltiness at all. Thin and watery. Nice statement, but unfortunately not a very enjoyable beer.

Bottle: Served in a shaker: Medium sized fluffy off white light beige foamy head on top of a clear amber colored beer. Aromas of hops, some hop flowers, nettle, tea herbs, some resin and light toast. Flavours of herbs, water, bitters, some hints of hop flowers, hop fruits and herbs, light toast, some malts and resin. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, hops, herbs and some malts. Low carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium yet thin bodied and a watery texture. Decent but thin...

Kuparisen ruskea olut valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on Brewdogmaisen hedelmäinen ja purkkainen. Myös makeaa mallasta. Maku on hieman katkera ja metallinen. Vähän on vetinen ja mauton, mutta onhan tämä alkoholittomaksi oikein hyvä olut. Etenkin tuoksu tekee vaikutuksen.

Très étonnante pour une bière avec aussi peu d’alcool. Une couleur assez sombre, une attaque dans le goût assez forte, mais une très faible longueur en bouche dû au faible degré d’alcool. Une bière très rafraîchissante mais qui manque quand même un peu d’alcool à mon goût.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Doftar frisk och fruktig humle. Karamellig tunn smak med ganska stor beska. Mycket bra lättöl

Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark red colour, long lasting white head. Aroma is medium hoppy (surprisingly!) with notes of resin; additional notes of chamomile. Taste is lightly sweet, medium bitter, slightly sour. Little body, watery texture, average carbonation.

Beerheart65 (976) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 19, 2014
Clear mahogany with one finger frothy light brown head and some lacing. Strong aroma has grapefruit and spruce, some tropical fruit nuances and caramel malt underneath. Very light, bit watery, strong bitterness and quite dry but fruity nuances balance, long and bitter finish which has some mango tones in the end, standard carbonation. Light and bitter as h*ll, not that easy to drink. Not one of my favorites but this has some appeal like the finish delivering mango as a kind of bonus.

Thanks Srđan & Nataša! Bottle at Csak a Jó Sör. Got this for us to try to show them the versatility of beers. Bronze body. Lovely piney peach ice tea aroma, light lemony notes, sweetish. Empty taste, of course, light tropical notes, sweetish, light bitterness. Great for what it is.
