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.

Sjohnh (594) - 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.

R4N5H (525) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Draught pint, served from a cask at The Sir Christopher Hatton, Chancery Lane on 26/02/15. Ruby reddish brown colour with a small off-white head which quickly disappears. Medium bodied with very little to no carbonation. Aroma of caramel, malt and fruit. Light bitter taste, but heavy in sweet fruit. Wouldn?t want to drink more t hand one.

It's hobgoblin. The boring beer you have when there is not else. Red coloured, malty. Bit of a mess but ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the Abbaye. Clear mahogony colored ale. Classic bitter, nice nutty and malty flavors. Decent session ale, I suppose. Still would rather have a Fullers.

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
On tap at Pit & Pendulum, Nottingham. Pours a ruby red in colour, with decent single finger off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, chocolate, coffee, and some earthiness. Taste is much the same with some light hoppy bitterness. A great go to beer if there’s nothing else on.
