Ghost Ship is a ghostly pale ale which takes its inspiration from Adnams 600-year-old haunted pub, The Bell. Brewed with a selection of malts - Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara. We use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.

Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 440ml cans.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Pours orange-yellow colour, thin white head. Very hoppy, citrus aroma. Fresh flavour of hops, citrus and elder with strong bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and not too strong summer pale ale.

I_LUV_BEER (53) - - APR 19, 2016
Served in a tulip glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark golden colour with a big and creamy white head with good retention leaving medium lacing behind. Aroma is refreshing with clear citrus, grapefruit and hoppy notes. At the second sniff some grass and herbs creep in. Taste is pleasantly bitter-sweet with grapefruit, pale malts, orange zest and a touch of pine resin. Medium carbonation and light body with a pleasant bitter finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Nice one!

A very serviceable traditional pale ale. Modestly fruited, dry, mild bitter hints late. Really easy to slurp.

thellgren (672) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2016
0.5 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Nice head with clear amber ale. Taste has malts and hops but as strongly as in a bitter. This has also something else which I think is the water. Quite mineral taste. No, this is not a Golden Ale or Bitter this is really an English Pale Ale.

DanielBrown (4329) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from Tesco. Polished. Relentlessly effective. Great sappy sticky British twang. Crisp, bitter, flavoured all through the tongue zone. This was good news for the face sac. Liked.

jjsint (1957) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle at Stuntney Social Club. Golden brown, clear, without excessive visible carbonation. Floral smell but also quite eggy, not the glorious hop scent that can be produced by cask. Bittersweet, biscuity and fruity taste. Well-carbonated palate. Rather have the cask but it’ll do.

nybol (1059) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2016
Godt humlet, let sødlig. Fin øl til en let anretning til fx frokosten. Ellers lidt kedelig.

uckelman (539) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Pours clear, medium amber. About a half finger of dense tan head. The Citra hops are quite prominent in the nose. Bittersweet, grainy flavor. The rye adds a nice spicy finish. Not bad.

sarauckelman (358) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Clear amber with thin tan head of mixed-sized bubbles. Very hoppy aroma, esp. from the Citra, also a bit soapy. Taste is not as hoppy as aroma, and nicely offset with a bit of grain. Mouthfeel is a bit soapy. The hoppy aroma and the soap make it not as much to my taste.

Couleur ambrée, très légère mousse. Nez de feuille de thé, menthe, avec note citronnée et litchis. Gout de thé avec note menthe sauvage, miel et zestes d’agrumes. Fin de bouche avec légère amertume herbeuse et terreuse. Pas courante
