DRINK OF THE WEEK
10th December 2018
Adnams Ghost Ship 0.5%
Tesco £1.30 500ml (spoons on draft)
Drinker Rating 91
In Party Season there's often a need to water the designated driver. This (virtually) alcohol free version of Ghost Ship is a bit of a miracle for the teetotal beer lover.
Like proper Ghost Ship it has enough of a hoppy finish and balance in the palate but with no alcohol it is a little lacking in body. However I'd be perfectly happy to knock this back if I had to forego the sauce, really properly made stuff from a brewer you can trust.
For gin lovers try Marks and Spencers' Alcohol Free G&T (£2.50) which is truly wonderful and for fizz get to Aldi for their Zero Point Zero Rose fizz (£2.49). Both very satisfying replacements for the hard stuff.
