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.

Pours golden color, with tan white head. Aroma: citruses, pine, some bread notes in the background. Flavor is very similar: bread like malt backbone, supported with hop flavor, which takes on citruses, pine. Hop bitterness is medium to high, and lingers in aftertaste. Body is light to medium, texture is soft. carbonation is medium.

Pleasant but faint aroma. Pours clear gold with little head or carbonation. Earthy, caramel, resin taste. Some lingering enjoyable bitterness. One of the better top fermented cask beers.

BrettGT (152) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2016
On tap. Aroma of pine, orange marmelade, breadiness. Pours clear golden with almost no head. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet. Taste follows the nose with a piney and orange hoppy taste backed up by underlying bready malt. Medium light body, pretty easy drinking, average carbonation. Finshes a bit hoppy. Feels more like a english pale ale to me.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2016
Cask, at the Wharf. Dark golden in the glass, close to clear, with a thin, bubbly off-white head. Perfumed, peachy and citrusy aroma with little malt impact. Quite bitter flavor, citrusy and zesty, with some peach. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Rather dry, with a long bitter and citrusy finish with some light maltyness. Quenching and quaffable. 160622
