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.

Caramel and faint sweet malt aroma. Dark amber colour with good looking carbonation but poor foam. Chocolate flavour with descreete hops. Nice fresh mouthfeel with delicious carbonation. I like this one!

Pas mauvaise comme ESB, pas trop amère. Elle serait meilleure en fut ou dans une bouteille brune.

Notes from a tasting last year. Bottle, rudy brown pour with decent head. Toasty malt caramel aroma, and flavors. A little thin and lioght, both in flavor, and in mouthfeel.Not bad, but I won’t go chasing it.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Pours a deep red with a light creamy tan head. Malty aroma, fruity at the same time, light sniffs of hops. Flavor was good, fruity with a light hop bitterness. As the beer warmed slightly the lightly chocolate/coffee undertones were faintly detected. Very good. I’ll have it again.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 11, 2006
In the 12 oz. brown bottle. Pours a dark brown with ruby undertones. White head quickly becomes exhausted from the beer. Wonderful toasted malty aroma. The body of this beer is very very watery, and yet the flavor is still quite nice. Good caramel roasted flavor with a nice hop bitterness to balance. Easy to drink.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Deep amber color with a head that collapses slowly and laces down the glass. Very sweet with little bitterness. Overall not an excpetional beer, given the price.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Not a big bitter fan... dark Amber with a redish tinge. Small but fine head with good lasting lacing. Some nice caramel and toffee aroma characteristics. Some nice toffee and caramel malt flavours but nothing too exciting.No real hop flavour to start with, although it goes towards a bitter finish. A bit thin and watery...

Aquilo (622) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 1, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 I rather enjoy this beer. Here in California, it comes imported from England, and it seems to have traveled well. It is deep red-amber when you hold it to the light. It has a foamy mocha-colored head, with some lacing. Sweet aroma. Fizzy, dry palate. The flavor is light with hints of sweet toffee and perhaps vanilla.
