Adnams Ghost Ship Alcohol Free Beer (0.5% ABV)
Ghost Ship Alcohol Free has docked! It has all the same flavours and aromas as Ghost Ship 4.5% but is no apparition, treating pale ale lovers to 100% of the taste at 0.5% abv - spooky!
If your an ale fan then this needs to be tried to be believed!
Fergus Fitzgerald, Head Brewer at Adnams explains:
"Over the past few years we looked at lots of different ways of making low alcohol beers, the reverse osmosis method gave by far the best tasting beer. It allows us to brew and ferment as normal and then at cold temperatures remove the alcohol whilst leaving the other flavours of the fermentation in the beer. It's all very high tech magic allowing our Ghost Ship to sail away free from alcohol but remaining full of its original flavours and aromas".
Alcohol Free Beers are made just like the alcoholic ones with water, yeast, hops and barley. Some are brewed to a lower ABV and some have the alcohol removed through various techniques. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as alcohol free. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
