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 0,33 from System Bolaget. Dark amber, white laceing head. Nose is pretty non-existent (cold beer). Flavor is pretty mild too, not as hopped as expected. Pine needles, soap. Nothing to back the hops, some malty roastiness. Pretty refreshing, but not exactly a winner. Looks better than tastes.

A few bottles at home over the course of the past few sober weeks. It’s the best ’Nealko’ that I’ve ever tried. Pours Amber with a White head. The aroma bursts out of the bottle and allows you to suspend for a moment the belief that you’re drinking a ’Nealko’. When you sup it, it’s clear that the alcohol is absent. It’s thin. Like a hop tea. Very flavoursome and with a pronounced bitterness. It’s not in any way a chore to drink this beer. Impressive.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Gorinchem Hazy golden with an off-white head. Good strong hop aroma. First taste is promising: decent hopbitterness with some malts. but it’s gone before you know it due to the minimal malts content in the beer. Still. it’s decent to good for what it is: a decently hopped malt beer.

Of course, something is missing, but very good for what it is. Especially great arima. Just a bit flat.

Belle robe ambrée claire, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez caramel, orange, pamplemousse, fruits de la passion. En bouche, on discerne le manque de matière et on a un corps très aqueux, une bonne amertume et la présence marquée des agrumes. Très bonne ... pour une bonne sans alcool !

bunget (857) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle. Dark orange body, good beige head with decent retention. Aroma of orange candies and grapefruit, caramel and hints of pine. Taste of mineral water, caramel, grapefruit zest, metallic notes. A tad flat. Probably the best NA beer I’ve tried so far.

bonev (336) - POLAND - AUG 30, 2016
Piwo klarowne w kolorze ciemno miedzianym z dosc obfita grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie na poczatku bardzo intensywnie od chmieli, sa grejpfruty, cytrusy, ananas i mango. W smaku rowniez wszystko pasuje, jest zywica, trawa cytrynowa i slody. Z czasem piwo jednak bardzo szybko sie wygazowuje, caly czar pryska i zostaje slodko gorzka woda. Ciezko dopic bez zmeczenia sie.

Kolor miedziano br?zowy, klarowny. Piana wysoka, sztywna cho? z uwagi na budow? do naj?adniejszych nienale?y, Sporych rozmiarów oczka p?kaj?c tworz? co? na wzór piany po detergencie. Aromat intensywnie owocowy, s?odkie tropiki i cytrusy, prawdziwa bomba owocowa. Bardzo delikatna ?ywica i nuty metaliczne, których pochodzenie jest ewidentnie chmielowe. Smak podobnie jak wy?ej, mega owocowy z delikatn? ?ywic? w tle. Ponownie wyczuwalne nuty metaliczne. Goryczka sucha, troch? t?pa, trawiasta. Wysycenie ?rednie. Uwagi: bardzo "cienkie" piwo, mimo intensywnego aramatu i smaku owocowego, odnosi si? wra?enie ?e pije si? wod?.

Une bière sans alcool qui ne ressemble pas à une sans alcool. Du caractère, vraiment intéressante
