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).

Bottle with amber clean look and very American hoppy nose. Tates a bit chemically and watery but lovely choice for low alcohol.

EdKing (2668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Clear chestnut brown beer with a large white foam head. Nose is caramel, toasted malt grains, grapefruit citrus hop and something a little odd like paper or cardboard. Taste is quite watery, toasted grains, little grapefruit hop citrus, caramel. I don’t drink a lot of these types of beers but it lacks something without the alcohol.

Maakun (6766) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle at Lokaal Duinoord. Clear dark amber with beige head. Soft wort, grassy hops and light lime, hay, soft roast, light mineral. Light sweet and solid medium bitter. Quite light bodied and a bit watery. Decent for a low alcohol beer I guess.

kaserov (1105) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 30, 2017
Color cobre, rojizo si le da la luz, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma lupulado, a grano, cítricos, melocotón, caramelo. Sabor a grano, caramelo, melocotón, cítricos. Extraña y compleja. Deja algo de impresión en el paladar entre trago y trago. Algo ligeramente frutal y resinoso, pero sin llegar a ser amargo. Interesante.

33cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Helder koperkleurig met een gebroken witte schuimkraag. G: Tropisch fruit en citrushop. Ook een beetje hars. S: Bitterzoet. Wat tropisch fruit en citrus. Zoals verwacht wat waterachtig. M: Dorstlesser met medium carbonatie.

Lorsque la brasserie connue pour ses bières à très haut "niveau" d'alcool sort une bière à 0.5°, il faut s'y intéresser, et la Brewdog Nanny State a de quoi faire parler d'elle. Malgré son taux quasi nul d'alcool elle se révèle très agréable à boire grâce à des arômes d'agrumes prononcés et à une IBU assez forte (45 IBU). Avis aux amateurs d'amertume. En plus de cela, en contradiction avec ce que l'on pourrait penser, cette bière est forte en goût. Le houblon et le malt vous font redécouvrir ce que signifie le mot "caractère", une vraie aventure houblonnée pour votre palet. Un plaisir. Autant dire qu'avec cette bière, Brewdog sort des sentiers battus que la brasserie connait bien et s'en sort avec brio. Et pour une fois, nous pouvons le dire, à consommer sans modération ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GhostS (547) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUN 20, 2017
Aromă medie, cu mult hamei ierbos, frunze uscate, citrice, puțină caramelă și fructe uscate. Gust cam dur, cu nuanțe pământoase și multă țărână, amăreală moderată și neplăcută, frunze, ceva malț. Cam neplăcută și dură.

CraftBeerNick (2977) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle on beach, 18th June 17. Pours dark Amber. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, bubblegum. Taste is typical Brewdog base, hoppy, citrus, bitter. Amazing amount of flavour for a non alcohol beer. Impressive.

3.7
leoben (28) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
The best low-alcohol beer I have tried (by a country mile). Based on some critical reviews here I maybe need to find others available out there, but based on my own experience it deserves a good rating from me. 330ml bottle from Morrisons, UK. It pours brown with hints of red. Foams nicely with medium carbonation. Woody aroma and a lasting pleasant bitter taste.

foambeard (3) - ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2017 does not count
Hoppy and bitter in a very unsophisticated way, certainly not one I’d try again.
