My bottle of Adnams Ghost Ship had a cloudy, slightly orange colour with a head that slowly dissipates. It claims to be a ghostly pale ale, so maybe the colour is inspired by a movie called ‘The Fog’! If I’d been served a pint like this in a pub and it wasn’t a wheat beer, I’d probably ask for it to be replaced. The smell is fruity – maybe peaches and apricot, and the taste is far from unpleasant: a toasty malty flavour that’s well balanced with lemony flavours from the Citra hops. This 4.5% ABV pale ale would work well on a warm day with a ploughman’s lunch.
