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.

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.

bartlebier (2670) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
500ml bottle, P-Worm haul by Sheffield D&M. Damp orange peel, dry honey, tea leaf aroma. More leafy Earl Grey, rye caramel, lime peel in taste with an untypical lingering zesty finish, reminding me of a more toasty malt-studded Liberty Ale. Excellent dryness. Big fan of sub 5% ice tea-like ales like this.

Aroma is sweet tropical fruits, taste is sweetish malty tropical fruits, mango mostly, I seem to remember this was hoppier ie more bitter, also a bit watery I think but still very good.

On sale at Tesco (4 of any designated beers for 6 pounds) 500ml bottle. Pale gold colour with medium white head dissipating slowly and gentle carbonation. Golden delicious apple, then grapefruit, biscuity malt on the aroma.Similar on the taste ending in a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Nice, refreshing ale at slightly cooler than cellar temperature.

floydian1 (1186) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 19, 2015
440ml can. A pleasant English style pale ale with caramel malts and flowery/citrusy hops on the nose and tongue with a touch of yeasty earthiness. Medium-light bodied with a lowish carbonation making for easy drinkabiliity. Clear copper-amber appearance with a decent creamy white head. Quite reasonably priced at Dan Murphy’s at present.

Bottle from Tesco. (£1.65) Tried the tap version twice before and didn't like it at all. This is better - although with a bitterness that lasts a tad too long. Ok-ish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
