COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Bronze Medal Winner at The International Brewing Awards 2013, Silver Medal winner at the 2014 International Beer Challenge and Gold Medal Winner at The Indie Beer Can Awards 2014 (Contains barley & rye). Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 440ml cans.

Can. Clear, golden orange pour with a large, frothy white head. Lots of citrus on the nose, balanced nicely with hops. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy, an a little metallic with decent citrus notes. Overall a little watery and not hugely flavourful, but balanced and pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze bursztynowym z biala drobnopecherzykowa piana na grubosc jednego palca. W aromacie cytrusy i troche grejpfrut z karmelem. W smaku przyjemna goryczka niezbyt intensywna dobrze komponuje sie z lekkoscia i pijalnoscia. Troche kwiatowe i slodowe z raczej wytrawnym finiszem. Solidny angielski ale.

ndburns (140) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Pours a copperish amber with some carbonation and a foamy off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, a little citrus/ Similar taste, sweet throughout, just a touch of bitterness to finish.

TheKernOwl (172) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2016
Floral, grapefruit zest, apricot, tangerine (and slight ginger?) nose. Honeyed, creamy and mellow middle and end. Not sure if it could / should be crisper, but otherwise this seems like the Ghost-ess with the most-ess.

The ghost ship can stay dead and lost at sea. It’s not bad, it just isn’t that good.

nephirem (217) - CROATIA - JUL 2, 2016
Pours clear copper color with small and short lasting white head that leaves some nice lacing. Smell is very pleasant and refreshing, lots of hops on the nose, citrus and passion fruit. Medium body with soft carbonation and thick texture. Refreshingly light and bitter. Aroma similar to nose, hops, citrus, passion fruit, floral and herbal, very nicely balanced. Overall mouthfeel is a bit dry, same as the finish. Tasty and refreshing.

A bottle at Tehnolog’s dogs, shared with Ivan. Thanks! Cloudy golden, lasting off-white head. Very aromatic, herbal hops, herbal spices, leaves. Sweet and malty. Some biscuit. Light body, soft carbonation. Drinkable, but light. Light herbal finish.

An excellent Pale Ale. Very, very pale. An excellent flavour, complex & subtle, hops++, citrus, grapefruit. Thus far I’ve only been able to obtain Ghost Ship in cans and they seem to have had a problem at their cannery, many of the cans ’gush’ upon opening.

Amber beer with medium foamy head. Strawberry, lemon on the nose with a hint of marmite. Strawberry and cream taste, biscuit, caramel and hints of grass. Light bitter finish. Smooth palate. Good but slightly too creamy and needs more bitter hit.
