Adnams Ghost Ship 0.5% Bottles

- +
8 bottles of the delicious 0.5%

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.

Adnams Ghost Ship 0.5% Bottles


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%."

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.

0.5% yet stunning

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.

Brilliant Ghost Ship

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)

Ghost ship 0.5%

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.

Adams Ghostship

What a game changer, excellent beer but low alcohol, well-done Adams.

21st June 2020

Amazing Taste

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.

Ghost Ship - 0.5%

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!

7th June 2020

The only beer for me from now on

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.

Ghost Ship

Am totally blown away with the taste of this beer. This will change my drinking habit completely. Without compromising my health!

Full Marks Adnams

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.

At last a fantastic tasting beer I can drink all night.

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.

Almost too good to be true

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.

Ghost Ship 0.5 low alcohol magic!

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!

Ghost Ship is delicious and excellent value for money

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.

Ghostly Wonder !

Great taste, I ordered this on the 'strength' of the reviews and I haven't been disappointed, good stuff Adnams !

25th August 2019

I highly recommend it

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.

18th August 2019

Just the job

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.

6th August 2019


I came across the normal Ghost Ship a few years ago and is now my favourite beer. Yesterday 7/7/19 I went into the Blue Boar Weatherspoons in Billericay and found they did the Ghost Ship alcohol free beer. At this point I didn't know it was even available, so I had one. I was amazed, it really does teste like Ghost ship and I'm so happy because I'm normally driving and now I can still have my favourite teste and drive. Great job Adnams.

26th June 2019

Men's Health

"A 'proper ale' with lots of hoppiness."

Sunday Express

"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."

About Time

"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."

The Times

"Dry-hopped, fruity, full-throttle and malty. No wonder Adnams keeps running - it's delicious!"

The Daily Telegraph

"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."

Great British Food

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.
