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 0,33 from System Bolaget. Dark amber, white laceing head. Nose is pretty non-existent (cold beer). Flavor is pretty mild too, not as hopped as expected. Pine needles, soap. Nothing to back the hops, some malty roastiness. Pretty refreshing, but not exactly a winner. Looks better than tastes.

Kolor mocnej herbaty, z małą pianą. W smaku pierwsze wrażenie to nachmielona woda. Jest bardzo cienko, ale można się przyzwyczaić. Daje radę, ale tak ledwo ledwo.

330 ml Bottel. Pours with a clear amber and nice off-white head. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The nose is quite nice: tropical fruits, orange zest, hops & pines, some caramel. Taste of grapefruit- and orange peels, slightly pine, lots of hops. Very nice bitterness. The nose would have been one of my favouritey in a blind tasting. Good one!

lbianchi66 (379) - FRANCE - APR 27, 2017
Robe brune et limpide. Pas de mousse. Armes caramel et rsineux, un peu de pamplemousse et de rose. Got caramel, tofee, fruits confits, le tout est bien fade. Le rsineux arrive ensuite. Texture aqueuse, carbonatation grosse. Pas mal pour une bire sans alcool. Buvable sinon.

Tap w Brewdog Warszawa. Przyjemnie pachnie owocami ale i karmelem. Smak umiarkowanie gorzki, trochę słodyczy. Przyjemne jak na styl.

Comment un brasseur comme Brewdog peut-il se compromettre dans une bire sans alcool??? Deux explications: le business .. ou la science-fiction, sur la plante "nanny state". En loccurrence, on sest quand mme cass le cul chez Brewdog pour mettre 5 houblons dans 0,5 % abv il faut tre fort!! Nous sommes donc avec une "alcohol free hoppy ale", houblonne en amarillo, centennial, columbus, cascade, simcoe, plus un dry hopping en amarillo et centennial .. Excusez du peu et de linconsquence ... Niveau ebu de 45. Mon exemplaire tait 8 mois avant date, tout frais, avec son tiquette vert meraude. Couleur candi brun, caramel fonc, la clart nette. Bulles trs grosses, sur les parois. Mousse beige clair, soyeuse, stable 3 mm. Armes de houblon amricain, pamplemousse, lichee, pointe de griotte, fruit de la passion, pointe deau de rose. 1re bouche trs efface, triste, o les impressions du nez seffacent comme une toile filante. Texture aqueuse. Arrire-bouche courte, mais qui laisse un peu damertume de parade. 2me o on passe sur une petite citronnade, avec limpression dune radler. Arrire-bouche qui steint sans autre formalit. La longueur amliore un rien lamertume, mais sans aucun accompagnement fruit. Jambes flocons moyens, collantes aux parois. Alcool: tiens, si je vous dis quil est inefficient, vous ne me croirez pas!! Finale entre amertume et panach. CONCLUSION: il est dabord bien triste de voir ce genre de ralisation chez un bon brasseur, il est ensuite inconcevable dans gaspiller dans un tel cadre de lamarillo!! Moi qui suit contre ce gaspillage, jai t servi un maximum .. Quant au style, on peut parler dune "dandy beer" pour "nanny state"...

biir (1197) - Berlin, - APR 3, 2017
Bottle - pours clear dark amber, small white head. smells very good: tropical fruits, spices. the first sip is a total desaster though. this brew is a black hole. its like coca cola zero: you expect it to be like the original and its just sh*t. very sweet malts, nearly no hoppy aromas, cardboard, watery body. its n/a okay, but even in this category there are better choices. this tastes like cold fruit tea.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear mahogany, spongy off-white head. Fresh strong orange zest and pine, sticky caramelized sugars - like candy. Dry thin taste - totally devoid of sugars. Everything is based on a moderate piney hop bitterness. Not bad for what it is.

SimonBlok (469) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma: very fruity, grapefruit, citrus, mango, hops. Taste: medium sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of thin coffee, citrus fruits and some earth. Palate: light bodied, thin / watery texture and medium carbonation. Pretty good for a low alcohol beer, especially the aroma. A little bit thin though.

Parmenion777 (244) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 Pours a coppery amber colour with a small frothy beige head. A hoppy fruity citrus aroma. Thin, watery, little to no malt flavour or sweetness. A bit like cold stewed tea with a citrus resinous hop bitterness and some dryness in the finish. Smells okay but disappointing taste.
