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).

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

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.

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.

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.

Hoppy and bitter in a very unsophisticated way, certainly not one I’d try again.

jooilakon (136) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2017
Bottle 330 ml from Waitrose. Floral aromas with hints of pine, popcorn and wood. Big and fluffy white-beige head, and a clear dark amber body. Taste is bitter and very hoppy. High carbonation. Missing sweet fruit or citrus notes. Decent non-alcohol alternative.

spacecube (1705) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle, pours dark amber with a foamy head. Aroma is light toffee malt, loads of pine, light floral and citrus. Taste is quite balanced. The palate is thin, the finish is moderate bitter. Best NA brew I’ve had.

huineman (688) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2017
33 cl bottle bought at Gourmet Experience Callao, Madrid, served in red wine glass. Pours dark reddish brown. Foamy, nicely lacing, thick off-white cream. Aroma is chestnut, candied sugar, bitter orange, cigar box, honey, pine resin, cedar. Nice carb, fresh acidity, very good long-lingering bitterness. The only reason why I’m not giving this incredible low-alcohol full points is that to my palate it is quite watery. Nonetheless, it is so far the best of its category I’ve ever tried. Congrats to BrewDog.

Hinaros (4) - ST HIPPOLYTE, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
Une des meilleures bières sans alcool pour moi, une amertume agréable au début mais qui prend un peu trop le dessus sur les notes d’agrumes et litchi présentes.
