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.

500 ml clear bottle. Gorgeous ruddy copper coloured beer topped by a fine-grained tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma, toffee, woody hops, some nice plummy fruitiness. Flavour is very well-balanced with sweet malt, stone fruits, and woody/spicy hops all mingling up front before the sweetness falls off leaving a soft spicy bitterness. A little bit minerally as well. Quite a nice bitter, actually.

The ale poured a thick opaque reddish brown with thin tan head. The aroma was light but smelled of sweet malt and dark fruits. The taste was very appealing it was truly sweet malt with a great cherry finish.

A nice dark beer with a thin head. Very rich and malty flavor with some slight chocolate notes. Wychwoods signature beer is one to try but not my personal favorite from them.

Looks like a glass of coke with a creamy layer of head, basically bland and malty, very thin in the palate, dry, not very bitter at all, not a whole lot goin on here, nice label though

Bottled. Amber. Not much aroma; a bit malty, notes of chocolate. Really malty and full. Some late bitterness.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Poured reddish amber with a small off-white head. Average hops aroma. Taste is peppery hops, with a somewhat spicy malt backbone to support it. Very decent beer, and tasted much better immediately following the John Courage Amber I had just before.

bottle - 3/19/05 - Poured a clear dark brown. there’s not much smell really...maybe a little musty. Taste is malty, not much hoppiness in this. Taste is better than the smell. Not too bad I don’t guess. What little finish there is is malty as well. Not bad overall. I could drink it.

Pours a nice reddish brown, not to much head retention, a little lacing down side of glass. But a very clean tasting, malty English dark berverage. It is a little spendy at $4.50 for only 17 oz. but well worth it once in a while as a treat.

poured a nice reddish-brown with a medium sized, light brown head. A little on the watery side but had some good nice malty flavor.
