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.

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

ABS (464) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle from Ica Lund. Pours amber with a couple of centimeters of white, frothy head. Lemon, grapefruit, malt and hint of skunk nose. Nice, hoppy flavour. Some lemon and hint of malt. Light bitterness. Quite thin body, with some graininess. A bit low on carbonation. Very refreshing.

Bottled. Pours clear rich gold with a good head. Good lacing on drinking. Enticing aroma that draws one in to a lovely refreshing pint that has a good balance between malts and hops. I suspect that this would go really well with spicy food.

A 0,5l bottle beer shop ’’Pivoljub’’. A: Nice old looking bottle with very intersting label, that explains the name oh this beer. Clear amber/golden colour with 1cm white/beige head. S: Aroma is vrey refreshing with some citrus fruit in the front, together with caramel in the back, but together very nice! T: Taste is pretty bitter with very nice fresh taste of hops that lasts quite a long time in the mouth :) Nice... M: Hops in its ful refreshing notes, together with medium bitterness creates a medium body in mouth. O: Overall: it is my first Adnams beer, but what a great one it is!

Punainen, melko kaunis juoma. Hyvä haju sentin vaahdon alla. Vetinen olemus, eikä oikein makua.
