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

SarkyNorthener (2557) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 24, 2013
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 wasnít expecting this to be as good as it was.

King_Alex_II (254) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2015
[From can to glass] Clear amber color with reasonable foam head. Fresh hoppy smell, thatís not too intense. The taste is moderately hoppey bitter. Little body taste, but well bitterness-supporting carbonation. However, the aftertaste is metallic. And the hints of body are a bit stronger in the aftertaste, which does not benefit the overall taste. This beer is nice if you donít wait to long for the next sip ;-).

magpieken (92) - - JAN 18, 2015
440ml can. 31 Jan 15. Pours a bright, pale gold/light amber colour with a large frothy white head which settled down to a couple of millimetres, leaving minimal lacing. Big hop aroma along the lines of an American Pale Ale: pine, resin and citrus; but also some underlying bready maltiness. Quite bitter but not excessively & some gentle sweetness but itís the bitterness that dominates. Light to medium body, quite thin texture, low carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. 7.

Cuso (5329) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle kindly shared by Miro, many thanks. Dark golden color with medium white head. Nice light citrus hoppy aroma. Solid malty base followed by nice citrus hoppy kick. Good.

Gurthnar (2375) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Clean crisp hoppy aroma, fruity, flowery. Caramel base. Clear golden to amber colour. Relatively stable head. Taste begins softly caramelly malty, fruity hops flavours, then moderate bitterness appears. The overall flavour impression does not seem particularly citrusy to me, especially not in comparison with American ales. However it is an easily drinkable well made beer.
