Nanny State is mild imperial ale containing more hops per barrel than any other beer ever brewed in the UK. It is an extraordinary little ale jammed full of all the brewer’s favourite hops giving it as much body and mouthy feel as possible, ensuring that low strength does not translate into reduced flavour. Nanny State, takes the low ABV hop-bomb concept to the next level and is so low in alcohol it is below the legal classification of beer and not strong enough to be subject to beer duty. We believe we have created a new beer category - The Imperial Mild - with Nanny State and How to Disappear Completely.

Clear brown beer, frothy creamy head. Neutral watery palate. Moderate carbonation. Surprisingly hoppy! Bitter fresh grapefruit. Pretty well flavoured for it’s abv but inevitably a little thin bodied.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s BrewDog tasting. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin yellowish head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours and nicely bitter. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A grassy bitter linger. I prefer this to the 0.5%.

Lowenbrau (1868) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 4, 2012
330ml botle. Best low abv i tried ever. High hop concentration makes it tasty. If not told some may not guess is a low alcohol one.

Bottle in Oslo. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. Taste was watery bitterness, no balance. Serves as proof that good beer needs alcohol presence.

awesome selection from secret santa, thank you a ton for this one! wow, what a damn interesting brew. damn impressive for 1.1% imho. dark red pour with and orangeish khaki head that leaves nice lacing and spotting. sure the body is a tad thin, but bolder and fuller than i had thought. its fairly hoppy, though a tad old at this point i think. lots of bitterness still present though. this would make a wonderful alternative for a sipper at ball games or other events. delicious super session beer.

dnstone (2128) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Pours a nice brown with slight off-white head. Nice strong malty, hoppy aromas. Strong maltiness with nice hop balance; like an extra pale ale remincent of sierra nevada pale and arrogant bastard (without the arrogance)...a very flavorful/aromaful beer that just lacks a bit of the body...and alcohol.
