COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Was 5% - changed to 4.5% early 2008
Traditionally Crafted Legendary Ruby Beer.
Hobgoblin is strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.
The ruby red coloured Hobgoblin is full-bodied and has a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity character.

Cask at The Roadhouse in Birmingham. I always find the caramel a bit too heavy in this beer. It’s a nice drink but not a session beer for me

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Cask at The Golden Fleece in York. Pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Mild roasty aroma. Flavor is mildly spicy and moderately malty. Something like a flavorful amber.

Hcgiii (30) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Not much initial taste that gives way to a lager taste. Carbonation takes and has a dark feel on way down. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pour on tap at Old Chicago, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of some sour grain, caramel, toffee, hints of spice, slight cardboard, just not the right tastes in here. Taste is similar, some sour grain, cardboard, some slight sweet caramel, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

The smell and look of this beer is about the only thing going for it. Too fruity for for me.
