It’s Ghost Ship, but not as you know it. We’ve managed to squeeze 100% of the taste into 0.5% abv. This is no apparition; it really is a low alcohol beer!
Ghost Ship 0.5% has the taste and aroma of Ghost Ship 4.5%, but with almost all the alcohol removed. There are lots of ways to create low alcohol beer, but many methods involve either changing the recipe or the way it is brewed, and this often alters the flavour.
Adnams invested in a de-alcoholiser; a reverse osmosis plant which allows the team to brew Ghost Ship 4.5% and then take out the alcohol. It is all very high tech, but what it does is allow Ghost Ship to sail away almost free from alcohol but remain full of its original flavours and aromas. So you’ll still get to experience that famous citrus kick and smell lovely lemon and lime, when occasion or preference dictates less alcohol.

Brewer, Dan Gooderham explains how it’s made: "To make Ghost Ship 0.5%, we first brew a version of Ghost Ship 4.5% using East Anglian barley – locally-grown Rye Crystal malt and Cara malts. We dry-hop with Citra, Chinook and Cascade to create those bright, citrus aromas and flavours, and ferment as we would normally. The beer is then sent across to our reverse osmosis plant, where under pressure water and ethanol travel across membranes. The driver for the process is the concentration gradient of ethanol across the membranes. We add lots of water to carry the ethanol away leaving concentrated Ghost Ship, minus the alcohol. We then blend back some fresh water and carbon dioxide to create Ghost Ship 0.5%."

This is the greatest low alcohol beer I have ever tried. With the increasing restrictions on driving and drinking this is a real pleasure. It means as the family's driver I can go out and have several pints without worrying about the consequences. I can really "enjoy the moment without the worry". I think it needs a real push to ensure it becomes really well known which would ensure it is available in as many pubs and supermarkets as possible. Carry on the fantastic work
I have yet to find a better, fuller bodied, more satisfying and real-feel beer than this one, even compared with much more expensive rivals.
The discovery of a tasty low alcohol beer to satisfy the 6.00pm rush for a drink has been my saviour since the first lockdown started.
Even my avid real ale drinkers have been surprised by the distinct taste of this fabulous brew.
I've was looking for a low alcohol beer for ages (this is pre-Covid) for mainly for visitors who drive/don't drink, but also for our own 'off days'. Wasn't having much luck in terms of anything that was actually enjoyable to drink. Then had this at a pub on draught and tried to send it back becasue it was 'real' beer and a mistake! It wasn't! So I came to the website and found it in bottles. No-one who drinks it forthe frist time can believe how full-bodied it is for 0.5% It's been our house beer ever since.
Wanted a zero or very low alcohol beer for midweek Champions League and without to feeling of jadedness.
In our local M&S Food and saw this, love the usual one and thought: why not? Whow. It’s stunning and 0.5%.
Great beer for midweek.
What a find . Ghost Ship is a truly delicious next-to-non alcoholic pale ale. Several reasons for drinking low or non alcoholic beers, eg designated driver, want to be sociable but don't like/want alcohol, want a refreshing but not sweet drink. Ghost Ship satisfies all these. Leaves other low alcohol beers we've tried trailing in its wake (sorry, tried to avoid all the puns, tide has turned for low alcohol beers, others out of their depth etc etc but couldn't resist in the end)
Over the years I’ve tried many low alcohol products so seeing this in Morrison’s on Friday I gave it a try. Bingo the first one that actually tastes like a drink you would choose to drink on it’s own merit.
Definitely worth a try.
What a game changer, excellent beer but low alcohol, well-done Adams.
I have tried many different beers and I can honestly say that the 0.5% Ghost Ship is amazing. I can't wait to order my next load. The carbs are low as well so this is excellent for me. Thank you Adnams.
Really nice beer and almost no alcohol! Very refreshing and a lovely tang. Having turned 18 and started driving in the early ‘80’s with the dreadful non alcoholic beer we had back then I never thought I’d be writing a (really) good review for a non alcoholic beer but here it is! Great work Mr Brewer/Adnams - thank you!
This is a full taste beer that is in my opinion the best on the market. It’s is refreshing hoppy low calorie and hardly any alcohol. This is the only beer that I need a second or third pint of in that price range. So I will stock up in case corona virus limits stock.
Am totally blown away with the taste of this beer. This will change my drinking habit completely. Without compromising my health!
Full marks Adnams. This beer has a hoppy aroma, a stimulating bitterness and a dry aftertaste. Each bottle lasts the distance and you don't find yourself drinking it too quickly, like most other low alcohol drinks or soft drinks. Indeed, every sip requires a little contemplation. In short, this beer satisfies the palate. I stuck to this beer at a Christmas get-together last night in a Wetherspoon pub and was safe to drive myself and others home afterwards, without any feeling that I had missed out.
I feel lucky to have found low alcohol Ghost Ship. Its a great full flavoured, refreshing beer with a nice bite and all those citrusy, piney, herby, hoppy, flavours I love. And now I can enjoy it by the gallon, all night, and still bounce out of bed the next morning, which surely is what drinking good beer is about.
Had a bottle of it at a marina near Ipswich as I was skipper to my boat, in fact had two bottles with lunch. Couldn't believe how good the taste was. Bought a case from the Adnams shop in Woodbridge this is the best ultra low beer around.
I gave up alcohol about 7 years ago...after a dry November. I always preferred beer to spirits or wine, but having drunk Kaliber for years when driving, the options were not great! I’ve drink every low/no alcohol beer/larger/stout on the market in the UK and Europe. In the last two years the choices have been amazing! I have four beers at present that are as good as any alcoholic beer and top of my list is Ghost Ship. I must have drunk at least 100 bottles but I still check the label after my first sip, convinced I’ve taken one of my husbands ‘real beers’ out of the fridge. I’ve fooled several beer drinking friends as well. Best product on the market...wish I could buy this in Europe too!
I've been trying lots of low alcohol/alcohol-free beers over the last couple of years. Why? To have a good drink that tastes like beer but has no after effects, to cut down on alcohol generally, to cut down on calories, and to be able to have some decent beer and still drive home. Alcohol-free wines are awful, but some beers are very good, and Ghost Ship is about the best of the many I've tried. A few run it close, mostly American IPA-style beers, but Ghost Ship is delicious and excellent value for money. The biggest problem is finding pubs that stock a range of low alcohol beers and this one in particular.
Great taste, I ordered this on the 'strength' of the reviews and I haven't been disappointed, good stuff Adnams !
I found this in my local Waitrose recently and having tried alcohol free lagers in the past I was a bit sceptical about trying it. However I was extremely surprised at the depth of flavour this beer has, I highly recommend it.
Love Ghost Ship 0.5%. Great for a hot day when you can enjoy a couple of cold ones without the alcohol effects. Of all the alcohol free or low alcohol beers this is simply the best.
"A 'proper ale' with lots of hoppiness."
"Here's one of the most convincing low/no alcohol beers I've sampled. It is fresh and flavoursome with a nice hoppy bite as well as fresh citrus notes."
"For those wanting to cut down on booze, Adnams has launched Ghost Ship 0.5%. It has all the flavour of the regular pale ale with only 0.5% abv so your hangover won't be coming to haunt you the next day."
"Dry-hopped, fruity, full-throttle and malty. No wonder Adnams keeps running - it's delicious!"
"As ever, if Adnams does something, it does it well. Hvaing invested in a reverse-osmosis machine to remove the alcohol, avoiding the need to subject the beer to heat, it produces an extremely faithful recreation of the original Ghost Ship ale, with its lovely bready character and orangey hop hints."
Easily one of the finest low alcohiol beers available, this ingenious version of Adnams' flagship Ghost Ship tastes like a slightly lighter version of the real thing. Expect bold flavours of Citra hops.
Its been historically challenging to find good non-alcoholic alternatives to beer, considering the unique taste and flavour that comes from the brewing process. After investing in a de-alcoholiser plant which can remove alcohol from beer after it has been brewed, Adnams has been able to reduce the alcohol in its Ghost Ship 4.5 per cent beer to 0.5 per cent. Given the small alcohol content, this might not be suitable for everyone, but if you’re still fine with the tiniest percentage of alcohol, we’d recommend giving these beers a try.
This is Adnams flagship pale ale, without the alcohol. It retains a lot of the mouthfeel, keeping that pleasing citrussy hop note, and goes down a treat.
