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 (1800) - 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.

Caramel, petite carbo, petit collet et belle dentelle Aromes bien fruits, resineux Amertume seche en finale sur des notes fruites et caramel, tres mince. On sent bien la difference entre 87 kilos et 450 kilos pour 20HL

lupuLust (239) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2016
19.12.2016 - I thought of non fermented malt sweetness and lacking hops but this is the opposite. Great hop aromas fruity, pine and herbs together with citrus. Body is extreme thin and got nothing of that residual sugar sweetness. Feels bit like a carbonised hop tea. Great hop aromas with some notes of malt coming through.

ale_eel (6) - - DEC 15, 2016 does not count
Smell: Perfumey floral nose, reminiscent of soap, slight fruit character, some flat vegetal note. Taste: Chalky, cardboardy, carbonic, thin, little to no sweetness, lemongrass, vegetal, medium+ bitter piney aftertaste, For a 0,5abv beer this is almost as good as they come. Although thin and lacking malt character, it has way more hops than most 0abv beers. Quite enjoyable if you dont have more than 1 and can enjoy it for what it is.

rodsquad (72) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle from Angus & Ale. Pours clear amber brown with next to no head. Weak, next to nothing aroma of citrus juice. Malty light flavour with lemon zest, brown bread and apple juice. light flavours reflected in the palate with sparkling carbonation. Overall a gentle malty beer. Incredibly easy drinking, as you may expect but a bit washy on the whole.

Taste: resin, citrus, herbs, tannic ; Appearance: pale, golden, hazy, minimal head ; Taste: very bitter, medium sourness ; Palate: very light body, thin feel (almost watery), average carbonation, not very long finish (which is good, here). Overall this tastes like a very bitter herbal tea made with too much different hops varieties, and too little body. I might seem harsh on it, because I very much like the initiative, but when it is a fail, it is a fail...
