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).

Cheeseboard (1464) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2020 330ml bottle. Pours clear amber brown with an off white head. Aroma: toffee malts & pine. Taste: heavy malty, metallic hints, super bitter throughout. Thin body. Pretty nasty tbh

OminouSC2 (2140) - Mora, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2020
UPDATED: APR 27, 2020 Amber colored, small white head. Aromas of citrus, malt and slight pine. Taste of citrus and malt. Thin.

rok1024 (1400) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - APR 26, 2020
UPDATED: APR 26, 2020 A high bitterness low alcohol hoppy ale. Pine notes, citrus and grapefruit. Enjoyable.

GSAP (811) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2020
UPDATED: APR 13, 2020 Donker oranje, aardige kraag welke plakt, aroma van scherpe citrusschil en licht kruidig. Smaak is wat mat, geen punchy smaak; eigenlijk weinig smaak.

AlainG (3051) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2020 Une rousse limite sans mousse qui persiste. Arômes simple de maïs. Des saveurs minérales, de fer ou quelque chose qui ressemble à une amertume, qui s'acoquine d'une âcreté légère toutefois dominante. Toujours cette impression métallique sur la langue. (3030-270220)

kappldav123 (7455) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2020 Huge thanks to Erzengel for that one! Can looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, huge head. Fine hoppy-sweetish aroma. Starts mild, fine hoppy notes, some bready notes as well. A bit moldy. Finish mild-malty, some metallical hints. Not bad at all.

FACambridge (654) - Chelmsford, Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2020 Aroma : Some toasted sweet toffee malt, but overridingly a sour lemon citrus & pine. Taste : Considering low amount of malt in the brew, it has a strong albeit short malty start. Finish is also short; dry with a citric bitterness & a slight metallic twang. Watery body. Not great but also not terrible for a low/no alcohol beer

eurekabrewer (262) - SPAIN - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Mucho lúpulo. Resinoso y cítrico. Poquísimo cuerpo. Algo d dulzor meloso tostado. Final seco y amargo. Justea mucho y no termina resultando muy agradable. Como todas sus alcohol free sean así...

ophone (1168) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2020 Amber clear with a thin head. Typical smell of a pale ale/IPA of grapefruit and exotic fruit. In taste less malty than most low alcohol beers, a bitterness which is not as complex as in the usual pale ale/IPA and a metallic note. Low carbonation.

DijkBier (1672) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2020 (Rate 04/01/20: 8-4-6-3-14 = 3.5) Clear ruby-brown, dark-amber to copper colour with off-white head, that retains well. Aroma is interesting: quite hoppy, both fruity, tropical and resinous with some other good senses. Taste is malty, clear hoppy, bit also bit watery. Further good mouthfeel. Brewdog made a quite OK low alco beer. (Re-rate 22/06/20: 6-5-5-3-11 = 3.0) Beautiful clear ruby chestnut colour pour with firm creme foamy head, retaining superbly. But this time less content with the aroma (soft hoppy, malty, but no other senses) and taste (clear but tanny/wry bitterness and also quite watery indeed). So less enthusiasm this time and even disappointment. Weird how the experience can vary...
