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!

A very serviceable traditional pale ale. Modestly fruited, dry, mild bitter hints late. Really easy to slurp.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Nice head with clear amber ale. Taste has malts and hops but as strongly as in a bitter. This has also something else which I think is the water. Quite mineral taste. No, this is not a Golden Ale or Bitter this is really an English Pale Ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tesco. Polished. Relentlessly effective. Great sappy sticky British twang. Crisp, bitter, flavoured all through the tongue zone. This was good news for the face sac. Liked.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Stuntney Social Club. Golden brown, clear, without excessive visible carbonation. Floral smell but also quite eggy, not the glorious hop scent that can be produced by cask. Bittersweet, biscuity and fruity taste. Well-carbonated palate. Rather have the cask but it’ll do.

Godt humlet, let sødlig. Fin øl til en let anretning til fx frokosten. Ellers lidt kedelig.
