Beautiful dark cherry body, with a minimal tan head that diminishes quickly. Malts, cherry, some yeast are all evident in the aroma. Good caramel malts with some light hops in the body, carbonation is noticable though not overwelming. Sweet ending.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark, chocolate brown beer with a thickish white head. A strong syrupy sweet malty nose, with elements of citrus hoppiness. The taste is again strong on the sweet malty aspect, the finish is a little dry in comparison, with the hint of hops. (Bottle).

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 1pint 0.9 ounce bottle this Hobgoblin is an absolutely clear reddish brown with a quarter inch white head. The carbonation seems to be medium. The aroma is almost non existent, but there a few malt notes to be found. The flavor is about the same. There is just not much there. The finish is clean and quick. A good session beer, but.... Now hold on! I had 2 bottles of this and the 2nd one poured out kind of skunky. I could smell it during the pour. I guess this is not a big surprise for a beer packaged up in a clear bottle. Oh, ick, it even tastes skunky. I guess this is where the overall category comes in. As far as being consistent this brew ainít making it overall.
