3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pale amber with a residual head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is hops and citrus, the hops produce a bitter finish at the end. Average body for a bitter. This is a well balanced golden ale. Even though Adnams produce good beers I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it was.

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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very serviceable traditional pale ale. Modestly fruited, dry, mild bitter hints late. Really easy to slurp.
