Very good ale.. I would say a winter drink. Full of flavour. Abit darker than I like.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Golden Grove, Chertsey. 17/07/16. Hadnít had this in years, but was always a favourite when I like a pint but had not really got in to beer. Little aroma. Ruby brown, as to be expected. May have been the barmaid but, as per the Gold, only a whisp of head. Fruity and sweet. Slight hint of bitterness. Pretty light in body and no carbonation. Not a challenging beer, however this at least makes it easy drink.

Bit more clear mahogany than ruby but ruby notes are there and they are visible depending on light. Light brown frothy head, medium dense, bit rocky, sticks to sides and gives some lacing well. Ok looks. Aroma is earthy and semisweet with brown bread, raisins, mild aroma. Ok but not really that inviting. Medium body, sweetish with bit syrupy nature, overripe dark fruits, bit thin almost watery feel, low carbonation makes it more evident, medium long malty finish, overripe apple in finish also. Decent but bit simple and not those tasty flavors that work even when not in a nuanced beer which is the case here.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 L: Clear brown, 3-4 fingers tall thick beige head that doesnít reduce much.
S: Smells more like lager. A bit malty, a bit hoppy, dried fruits.
T: Nice, the same as smell. Dry and slightly bitter finish (35 IBU I think).
А: Light-bodied, low carbonation.

Draught at Hobgoblin. Mostly toffee with a bit of plum and grassy notes, bittersweet finish. Decent for the style I guess but a bit too heavy for my liking.

Tasted from the tap on the 24/10/2015. Nothing special, malt and caramels predominates in this beer. Next one please!
