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: The Faulkners, Altrincham, 17/03/07] I consumed alot of ale on St Patricks Day this year but was delighted to come across an old favorite on Cask. This is one of my all time favorite ales and is a delicous dark and strong ale. A must try.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2009
(cask at the Greyhound, Diss) Dark red bown with a very white head, although it disappeared quickly. Red fruit smell blended nicely with some hops. Nothing spectacular thoguh. First sip was really nice subtle fruit taste - cherries with a hint of biscuit malt rounded out with a good deal of sweetness. Got a bit bland after that but ok.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Very dark with plenty of toffee in the aroma. Taste is balanced by a decent hop character though giving it almost dark fruit flavours. Not great, but better than most beers of this type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2010
On tap at the Moon & Six in Perth AU. Dark brown with a light long lasting head. Lovely malty flavours, slightly bitter finish. This was a really tasty pint. Well worth the visit.

Sjohnh (98) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On tap at the Shakespeare, Coventry. I prefer this from a bottle, maybe needed to be warmer. Reddish, little aroma, taste OK with plums and caramel but not enough of it.

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

Wat heb ik me vergist in dit bier zeg. Het was totaal niet mijn ding vandaar de lage score. De fles daarintegen was wel weer erg mooi.
