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).

csakajosor:hu Sötétebb, kicsit vöröses, aranysárga színe van, aminek a tetejét egy sokszor mosott gatya fehér színű, közepes méretű, nagy buborékos hab díszíti, de csak korlátozott ideig. Illata fenyőrügyes, szőlős, kissé élesztős és visszafogott. Ízében is érezni a fenyőgyantás aromát, olyan, mintha friss fenyőgallyakat főztek volna meg teának, sok vízzel, hozzá adagoltak volna egy kis édes, szagos szőlőt, hogy ne legyen annyira keserű és egy kis élesztőt, hogy ne legyen annyira édes + megfejelték volna egy jó adag komlóval amcsi komlóval, hogy legyen min csodálkozni. Teste, na az nincs, viszont buborékokkal elvan látva rendesen. Utóíze vékony, kesernyés. Na, ez az általam eddig kóstolt egyetlen igazán iható alkoholmentes sör. Vannak még csodák!

Vlear, dark brown colour and a frothy, tan head. Hoppy aroma, sweet bubblegum, some fruit. Somewhat bitter taste, dry finish, a bit soapy, hoppy aftertaste. Medium (on the lower end) body, light carbonation. It’s pretty good for such a low alcohol beer.

Brown color with an off-white head, good retention. Aroma is hoppy with light toasted malts. Flavor is medium bittery, light toasted. Watery final. Not bad for a non alcohol beer

Clear amber. A: carrot juice, medium exotic fruits, sweet malts. T: follows aroma, sweet maltiness is more pronounced. Lacks punch wrt mouthfeel because of low abv. Quite bitter in development and finished.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 The best low alcohol beer I have had. Dark amber color with big neck. Hoppy malty hay smell. Taste is fresh bitter hops with long bitter after taste. Ultra-enjoyable low alcohol IPA! Going to have a lot of sessions with it! Such a great alternative to the low alcohol lagers out there.

Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a tiny off white head that fades. Little carbonation. Aroma is strong and bitter, some caramel hints. The taste is watery and very bitter. Dry hops all the way, even stronger in the aftertaste.

This is with out a doubt the best low alcohol beer I have tasted. Pours deep golden brown from the bottle has a very distinct hoppy flavour you would expect and a hint of caramel. Top beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber colour with medium white head. Aroma is hoppy tropical fruits with caramel touch. In taste there is some hops, light bitterness. Palate- medium carbonation and watery thin body. Most surprising- caramel in colour, caramel in aroma, none of it in taste. Fairly drinkable. I had ’1 na 100’ by Kormoran for comparison (1% ABV Rye little APA) and it beats Nanny State to death with taste, body and aroma (and less than half the price in there)

09/07/2016 - sip from a 33cl bottle offered by a friend who can’t drink alcohol. Amber coloured with big head. Nose is insane exotic fruits. Taste is very bitter with hints of fruits, a bit soapy,very long bitter aftertaste. Way too bitter but very affordable as a low alcoholic beer.
