Scottish brewer BrewDog, of Fraserburgh, was criticised for Tokyo* which has an alcohol content of 18.2%.
Campaigners welcomed the 1.1% alcohol Nanny State but said the name showed a lack of appreciation of the problem
The 3,000 limited edition bottles of Tokyo* contained six units of alcohol - twice the recommended daily limit.
The company had insisted the £9.99 high strength beer would help tackle the country's binge-drinking culture, because customers would drink it in smaller quantities.
The name of the beer proves that once again this company is failing to acknowledge the seriousness of the alcohol problem facing Scotland

But Alcohol Focus Scotland had branded that argument "deluded".
BrewDog founder James Watt explained on his blog: "Anyone who knows BrewDog, knows beer, or anyone has more common sense than a common (or garden) gnome will know that the scathing and unrelenting criticism we faced was pretty unjustified.
"If logic serves the same people who witch-hunted and publicly slated us should now offer us heartfelt support and public congratulations.
"However I fear that this, unfortunately, is an arena devoid of logic and reason."
