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).

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!

Clear deep amber color, thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, some fruitiness, malt, flowers. Taste of... Well, water. Light touch of caramel, citrus, grass and tea. Light body, soft to average carbonation. Not good.

Bottle. Brown body with tan head. Aroma is fruity with citrus and pines. Taste is thin with some malts and hints of caramel and water. Aftertaste is bitter with hints of malts. Best alcohol free I ever had.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours amber with bubbly off-white head. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is rather light and airy citrus with a bitter finish. Obviously not going to be a hop-bomb. But for what it is, it’s alright.

Well what do you expect? It’s never going to be amazing but for a driving option it’s pretty damn good.

not a fan, i don’t taste anything about hops and something that remind me mineral water. It’s ok, i think, for the style.

mcberko (8691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Nose brings out light biscuity notes with only a touch of hops. Flavour is quite rancid really, with metallic notes and biscuity malt, with a harsh astringency on the finish. Why would you ever drink this? Quite gross really. Drain pour.

ChtiBreizh (88) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2015
Golden copper. Almost no head. watery body but fair amount of hops. There is an aftertaste of cardboard that i don’t like. Overall it is a good performance for a hoppy low alcohol beer.

ForlornHope (180) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Looks like coke when poured, thin white head. The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of pine, like floor cleaner. The taste is pretty bad, some malt and then a rasping, harsh bitterness that makes the throat contract. Thin palate and little carbonation. Overall - undrinkable. If you need an alcohol-free drink, try coffee. Or fruit juice, water, anything but this.

weordie (235) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Pours a nice copper with a thick foamy head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is tropical fruits. Very watery palate, vit of a bitter taste with not much pay off.

Bottle from Tesco. Brewdog have done a fine job with this. The usual problems with low/non-alcohol beer still exist here, but Nanny State provides just enough flavour to make it a worthwhile choice if you find yourself unable to have a "proper" drink. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
