Does Non Alcoholic Beer Taste The Same

Brewery – Adnam Southwold

Country – UK

Style – Citrus Pale Ale

KCal – 23 (100ml)

ABV – 0.5%

Sugar content – 0.1g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 4.4g (100ml)

Tasting – Ok so you are expecting a bit hit of citrus IPA hops. It half delivers and half feels a bit watery. I think the rock bottom sugar content has something to do with that. I mean its a decent tipple but you’d guess it was non alcoholic. Is the lack of sugar from a nutritional point of view a good enough reason to buy it vs a bit of lack of taste?

Verdict – 6.5/10. Bumped up from a 6 for the nutrition.

Adnams Southwold notes

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.

Ive reviewed this along side 5 other award winning beers, which will win?
