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.

bosta (229) - - AUG 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Pours orange-yellow colour, thin white head. Very hoppy, citrus aroma. Fresh flavour of hops, citrus and elder with strong bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and not too strong summer pale ale.

Sjohnh (837) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
All British beers tonight - bottled - but would need to hold their own in a decent pub. This would do OK - colour is dark amber to copper with a small white head. Us hops provide some pleasant citrus on the nose, slightly floral, decent malt. Malt leads in the mouth, with cereal and toffee, with some fruit from the hops. Medium body, low carb.

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Perfume, sweet, bit of liquid yeast and some cloth in aroma. Perfume, herbal hops, fruity and some grain in taste. Herbal hops and grains in aftertaste. Quite average bitterness. But this is average bitter too. Drinkable brew.

VamboladeTolly (1732) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma: malty, hay, caramel, dust. Taste; watery, caramel, rotten wet hay, sweetish-sourish-bitterish, unbalanced. Thin plus body. Bitterish finish. Messy brew.

Martin243 (1065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016
From a 5 litre mini-keg, purchased from Tesco Gateshead that I took to a Christmas party. Served in a plastic glass, for shame. Gold with a white pillow of a head. Citric aroma and flavour, with a cereal malt base coming from the rye. Some herbal notes. Uncomplicated quaffer perfectly fit for purpose.

suurjuust (3157) - ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear golden beer, medium white head. Nose is hoppy, messy malts and wet caramel, dough. Sickly malt and caramel, mild hops. Drinkable, but eh.

ArturoIta (2) - Bergamo, ITALY - DEC 20, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2016 Amber color, opaque. Approaching the glass to your nose feels the scent of citrus fruits immediately. From the first sip hints of tropical fruit, grapefruit. Good persistence in the mouth. Generally a beer with a good balance between sweet and bitter finish. Colore ambrato, opaco. Avvicinando il bicchiere al naso si sente immediatamente il profumo di agrumi. Dal primo sorso sentori di frutti tropicali, pompelmo. Buona persistenza in bocca. In generale una birra con un buon equilibrio tra dolce e finale amarognolo.

danjs5 (116) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2016
From a 440ml can. Not sure what a ghostly pale ale is but I am a fan. Pours a perfect clear amber with a decent head and carbonation. Initially powerful citrus and peach fruit and hops aroma which fades. Initial fruit taste leading to lasting layered caramel malt back palate. Frothy but balanced sweet bitterness combination mouthfeel. Medium body. Great beer from a can. This is a real treat.

Tangy ale. Crispy with spicy hops. Surprisingly well conditioned for a can. High on carbonation but still remains smooth.
