Nanny State is mild imperial ale containing more hops per barrel than any other beer ever brewed in the UK. It is an extraordinary little ale jammed full of all the brewer’s favourite hops giving it as much body and mouthy feel as possible, ensuring that low strength does not translate into reduced flavour. Nanny State, takes the low ABV hop-bomb concept to the next level and is so low in alcohol it is below the legal classification of beer and not strong enough to be subject to beer duty. We believe we have created a new beer category - The Imperial Mild - with Nanny State and How to Disappear Completely.

awesome selection from secret santa, thank you a ton for this one! wow, what a damn interesting brew. damn impressive for 1.1% imho. dark red pour with and orangeish khaki head that leaves nice lacing and spotting. sure the body is a tad thin, but bolder and fuller than i had thought. its fairly hoppy, though a tad old at this point i think. lots of bitterness still present though. this would make a wonderful alternative for a sipper at ball games or other events. delicious super session beer.

dnstone (3625) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Pours a nice brown with slight off-white head. Nice strong malty, hoppy aromas. Strong maltiness with nice hop balance; like an extra pale ale remincent of sierra nevada pale and arrogant bastard (without the arrogance)...a very flavorful/aromaful beer that just lacks a bit of the body...and alcohol.

Koelschtrinker (22064) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Sehr bitterer Anntrunk, der im Mittelteil penetrant wird, so stark, dass es kaum auszuahlten ist. Etwas Hopfen ist vorhanden, wird aber weitestgehend von der Bitterkeit geschluckt. Ganz wneig malzig. Bitter, bitter, BITTER!! 11/5/0/7/5

Odland (139) - NORWAY - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Online Store. Pours dark golden with a good white head. Very hoppy both on the nose and palate. A little watery. Nice bitter finish.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2011
Clear dark amber with a good head. Aroma heavy citrus hoppy Flavor light sweet and watery with a ton of hops in the after taste.

Rasmus40 (22128) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2011
Clear dark amber with a white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and very hoppy - pine and grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet and extremely bitter. Finish is dry and very bitter. Thin bodied and watery. Obviously lacks some balancing sweetness. This is without doubt the best low alcohol beer I’ve had so far. 151210
