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 and Silver Medal winner at the 2014 International Beer Challenge (Contains barley & rye). Available (pasteurised) in 500ml bottles and 440ml cans.

I really love this ale. A fruity, very pale and complex ale, that is quaffable enough to drink all night. This was my choice of Adams cask for my wedding day. 'Nuff said! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hand pulled cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW) Watford. Amber with a lively off white head. Impressively hoppy in an American way and well balanced against a clean malt profile. Grapefruit and lime with a lovely oily resinous swallow. Excellent!

Hugh (208) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2012
Draught in Waterbeach, Cambs. Ordinary looking amber beer, slight fruity nose. Then comes one of the best real ales Iíve had in years. Just a delightful bitterness with fruit tones. Nothing overstated, and that is where its beauty lies.Well done, Adnams!

Restaurant in Essex, England. Colour about old gold and ruby. Nice citrus aroma of citra. Balanced malty sweetness. Light bitterness of chinook. Easy drinking but also well built and complex. Very good cask ale. Something in between of UK and USA.

wheresthepath (2121) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
[Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading] Amber-gold with a small white head. Biscuit, hazelnut and a good, well balanced pithy grapefruit bitterness. A bit of pine in the finish brings sweetness to the palette. Unusual for Adnams in being hop rather than malt-led, but unlike many hoppy beers itís still well balanced with malt giving a satisfying mouthfeel. Great stuff!
