Miután már hazánkban is elérhetővé vált, nem volt más lehetőség, nekem is ki kellett próbálnom a Wychwood Hobgoblin nevű főzetét. Borostyán színű testén tört fehér hab terpeszkedik, krémes és puha, jólesik a szemnek. Szokványosan malátás, almásan édeskés, krétaporos-nemespenészes aromák szűrődnek ki, amolyan brit stílusú illatok ezek. Íze hasonlóan ismerős élményekkel gazdagít, telt és karakteres, gabonás-égetett cukros hangvétel, mely csemegeszerűen hat, haraphatóan tartalmas ital benyomását kelti. Jólesik nagyokat kortyolni belőle, ehhez ideális mértékű szénsavtartalom szolgáltat megfelelő alapokat. Utóízében megnyerő módon lép elő a komló karcos karaktere, a garatunk tájékán hosszasan időzik a visszafogott, de mégsem csak jelzés értékkel bíró, az összkép szerves részét képező kesernye.

Theydon_Bois (16262) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle at home, 24/11/15. Rich chestnut brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is overly sweet, vanilla, marzipan, toffee, sweet dark fruit notes. Taste comprises biscuit malt, toffee, raisen, dark fruit, light cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok if a touch overly sweet, needs to be beefed up on the bitterness front.
