Hobgoblin is a powerful full-bodied copper red, well-balanced brew. Strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.

Bottle. Nice brown color with a foamy white head. Smooth clean taste with a slight bit of bitter aftertaste. Not a big fan of the style but this one is a decent beer even if it was over priced.

A moderately malty strong ale with a distinctly fruity aroma which was quite pleasant. Once poured the beer produced a creamy off-white head which did not hang around too long. The dark brown colour was clear without sediment. Flavor was moderately bitter with a dry metallic finish. Definitely taste the alcohol with the finish. Overall a good but not outstanding beer.

Mild hop aroma, but it smelled slightly adjuncty. Nice head. Almost two fingers thick. Light malt taste with a macro tasting finish. Thin in the extreme. Unlike many German beers that are all malt no hop this one lacks the deptth of taste to save it. Not outright horrible, but not quite average either.

I like this beer. It was a dark ale which still carried over some cofee tones. Smooth and malty with a hint of hops. I liked it alot but im starting to truly enjoy english beers than any other.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Another weak beer by wychwood. If I didn’t buy all their beers at once I would have stopped at the first.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours reddish/amber. Aroma has some banana and that is it. Flavor was smoky sweet malt. Very bland in general.

Bottled. Pours a clear deep red with a light tan head. Aroma is decent. The first sip was a disppointment. This brew lacks body. Flavor is bitter with very light malt.

Nice reddish amber, clear, with a compact head. Roasted malt, toast, and caramel aromas. Balanced palate, pleasant to the finish. A terrific ale you could drink all night.

Bottled: Well I´ve had the possibility to try this for years, but I’ve always avoided it, and now I know why. Its a totally mediocre beer. Amber coloured. Clear.. Dark beige dense head. Some chocolate notes. Sweet and malty. Cocoa notes. Is sweet and light cloying in the end.
