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).

worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, - OCT 13, 2012
Deep brown amber with a thick creamy lasting, lacy beige head. Thick. The smell of BrewDog hops is clear right away with malt, caramel and citrus orange and peach. Soft carbonation on the medium thin body. Tastes a bit like pine, grass with caramel, some floral elements. A bit too plant like and watery but defiantly different without that much malt.

Madsen1635 (828) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark amber pour with offwhite head. Aroma has lovely citrus and fresh pine. Taste is watery but with loads of hops. Very fresh. Not a bad alternative for a real beer. Ends with quite a lot of bitter notes. Very thin and light body. Medium carbonation

thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2017
Bottle at home with my pregnant wife. It’s an odd colour -- sort of chestnut brown, like a dark mild -- and it smells like an American IPA. There’s definitely something missing from the lack of alcohol and it feels a little things, but it’s also pretty hoppy and legitimately tasty. Solid stuff!

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

2.5
EdKing (2586) - 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 (5577) - 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 (753) - 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 (368) - Chișinău, 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.
