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.

Pours deep red Amber from 12 oz with medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, chocolate and nuts. Semi sweet, biscuity, not over aggressive hops and dry finish. Smooth on the palate with medium body. Delicious beer, very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Brown with a persistent medium beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, marmalade, earthy and herbal, some chocolate and red fruits. Taste is sweet: chocolate, red fruits, caramel and toffee. Some yeasty and earthy character in flavour. Malty aftertaste. Delicious beer, could be more bitter.

Bottle at a BOSS meeting, thanks to Brent. Pours amber with a thin, creamy off white head. Aroma is slightly malty and some caramel. Thin bodied. Nice beer.

AlfredoGarcia (124) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 26, 2015
500 ml can. Hoppy smell, chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts. Look is perfect! Beautiful dark amber color with a big dense white head that stays. Delicious creamy taste, just a little watersish aftertaste, but it is really nice. Tremendous beer for me, don’t agree with the other moderate reviews at all. This is a top league beer.

TheKernOwl (13) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Nicer-than-average English fruity bitter. Dark brown/ ruby red. Sweet aroma - Christmas-blend coffe/ orange chocolate/ caramel sweetness; some bubblegum ester. Clash of light bitterness and fruity vibes - nice balance. Medium, creamier-than-average body, a little too much fizz. Finish a bit cliff-drop quick, albeit with a slight fruit return.

Bottled. Deep brown with thin head and soft carbonation. Nose has yeasty, cakey, chocolate, coffee with a hint of bubblegum. Taste is hops, apricot, strawberries, coffee with dry tangy bitter finish. Palate is a bit too fizzy, but otherwise a nice beer.

Old rating. Red brown pour. Pretty sweet - caramel, brown sugar, fruity, bready body. Bitterness at the end. Just okay.

gegwilson (2104) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours ruby with an off white head. Peppery spice flavour with some caramel, stewed fruit and a touch of pear drop. OK. I used to love this stuff before I discovered the world of craft beer. How times have changed...
