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.

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.

Pours transculescent amber - reddish colour with tiny yellow - white head. Medium fast rising small bubbles. Aroma without alcohol, with dominant notes of pinewood, earth. Taste is also without alcohol note. Dominate note of pinewood, mango, little citrous. Hop flavour firstly predominate flavour of malts, but finish is very well balanced. Hop bitterness is medium, finish is somehow dry with no so long lasting bitterness. Carbonation is soft. Malt sweetness is low. Body is tiny. Drinkable ale but not superlative.

Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of soap (?) and malt. Taste is kind of weird, grainy, bready, some hops and citrus. Extremely watery, lively carbonation.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 25, 2015
Kegged I guess at Ljubljanski Festival Piva 2015. Dark golden body. Tropical, herbal fresh aroma, sweetish and nice, with more of the same in the taste. Actually quite good.

MarkoNm (1301) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 23, 2015
Pours a hazy orangey golden color, topped with a small white head. Aroma of some mild fruity hops but with more caramel malt character. Malty and slightly sweet, followed by some herbal bitterness. Easily drinkable although nothing super special.

harrisoni (15009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons and drunk at home. Clear mid brown dark amber colour lasting beige head. Slightly perfumed hoppy aroma. Solid malt then some floral perfume hop on the finish. Not too bitter. Hard to say what this is. Perfumed bitter I guess. Good mouthfeel. Has that Adnams quality but not my favourite of theirs. Decent
