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.

This one pored into a pint glass and has a golden amber color. The aroma is almost a spice with nodes of hops. The flavor is the same spice with nodes or hops and finishes a little bitter. It flows across the palate with slight carbonation. Overall a very good beer from Adnams, I will drink this one again.

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.

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.

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.

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!
