Adnams Ghost Ship is part of our Permanent Range available all year round on draught and in bottles.
Ghost Ship is a ghostly pale ale which takes its inspiration from Adnams 600-year-old haunted pub, The Bell.
As well as having its own resident ghost, The Bell sits in one of England’s most haunted villages, Walberswick, where George Orwell famously spotted the spectre of a small stooping man, prompting a lifelong interest in ghosts. Walberswick’s shore is littered with the eerie wrecks of smuggling ships, much like the one on the pump clip. And just out to sea, now under the waves, lies the ghost town of Dunwich. Previously one of England’s biggest ports, Dunwich was washed out to sea in 1286.
Legend has it that the bells in the church tower can still be heard ringing on calm winter nights…
This beer has good assertive pithy bitterness with a malty backbone and a lemon and lime aroma. Ghost Ship is 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.
