Roger Protz's new book, "300 More Beers to Try Before You Die"Adnams Ghost Ship has been included in Roger Protz's new book "300 More Beers to Try Before You Die." Renowned beer writer Roger Protz launched his new book at the Great British Beer Festival. “300 More Beers To Try Before You Die!” features beers from all over the globe, including British Ales, Czech lagers, Belgian Blondes and German Wheat Beers alongside more unusual brews from as far afield as Australia and Cuba. Roger champions all good beer wherever it is made, and says, “New World beers can now challenge New World wines in their diversity and complexity, and Britain, with more breweries per head than any other country in the world, is once again the undisputed king of brewing nations.” Andy Wood, Chief Executive of Adnams, enjoys a pint of Adnams Ghost Ship in SouthwoldAndy Wood, Adnams Chief Executive comments: “We are delighted that Adnams Ghost Ship has been included in ‘300 More Beers to Try Before you Die’. We launched Adnams Ghost Ship in 2010 and it is now one of our most popular beers. Roger Protz is world famous for his writings about beer and has edited CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide for many years, his view are extremely well-respected and it is an honour to once again be included in his book. We would, of course, suggest that readers of the book begin their 300-beer journey with an Adnams Ghost Ship!” Roger's tasting note for Adnams Ghost Ship is as follows: "The beer has a superb aroma of violets, citrus fruit, spicy hops and lightly toasted malt. Tart fruit, tangy hop resins and a ‘malt biscuits’ grain note dominate the palate. The finish is long, complex, dry and bitter, but those characteristics are balanced by bittersweet citrus fruit, with grapefruit and lemon to the fore, and rich biscuit malt. It’s a beer that sends shivers down your spine." Cheers!
