Adnams Gunhill

2013-02-20 18.33.01

Gunhill is another beer from Adnams’ Sole Bay Brewery in Suffolk.  My first impression was that it was a brown ale, but I can see now that the beer has settled in the glass that it’s a deep ruby red.  On pouring, it has a lively head that thins but remains across the beer, and there’s a strong aroma of honey.  The beer has a flavour of butter, dried fruit and a slight hint of lemon, and an ABV of 4.0%.  Adnams has a great sustainability record, and I’m glad that by drinking this beer, I’m indirectly (through Adnams) making a contribution to the Prostate Cancer Charity.

Adnam’s Ghost Ship

2013-02-02 17.50.31

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.
