COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small tan head. Aroma is solid citrusy and grapefruit hoppy. Mild malty and vague butterish touch. Bone dry and bitter, loads of US hops flavours - not as bad a hopssoup as the 1.1 version. Citric and bone dry finish.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2010
Bottled. An amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of hops as well as lighter notes of malt and citrus. The flavor is very sweet - but lacks malt, and has notes of caramel and a sharp hop edge, leading to a dry hoppy finish. The body is thin. Too much.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. RBESG Rome 2010. Courtesy of ChristianScheffel. Pours a pretty and warm amber with a beige head. Fresh and fairly intense peach aroma. Light body, thin and watery, some nutty accents and pleasant aroma hops that leave a solid bitterness. Impressive range of flavours in such a small beer. 040610

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2010
Bottled (thanks TBone). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and grass. Flavour is fruits, floral notes and quite grassy. Quite thin palate, but brutally hoppy.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2010
Bottled. Clear bronze colour, fair sized head. Rich wonderful aroma of mango, lychee and peach. Thin and hard with plenty of sharp metal and exceptionally aggressive resiny bitterness that makes awfully tough to drink. Tastes like perfumed soap with that unpleasant chemical bitterness. Way, way out of balance. A gimmicky N/A.

Clear brown beer. Light cream head. Nice hoppy nose. Palate is inevitably a bit thin. Good strong hop flavour - grapefruit and a little tea. Not a beer I would seek out but would be more than happy to sup a few if I had to drive.
