Sensational ale. In Ireland, our draught ale is generally Smithwick’s which is poor. A few craft ales indigenous to RoI emerging, but poor availability in pubs. Hobgoblin is rare, an off license of renown or supermarket stock it. Great taste, body, look. Compliments to the good citizens of the UK, consider this your greatest achievement....

My absolute favourite! Wychwood breweries brew the finest ales and this ruby beer is legendary! I’m totally biased as you can see from my scores it’s a classic that will never be beaten

exeter (438) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a clear copper, weak head with very little lacing. Taste of sweet and roasted malts and some sweetness. Dark fruit and maybe chocolate. Malts lingers on the tongue.

Cor acobreada e âmbar, com pouca espuma. Aroma é complexo e promete mais do que a cerveja oferece; é possível sentir toques rurais, de plantas e frutas frescas. A cerveja é bastante refrescante e rústica, cai bem com comida devido ao seu corpo leve. Após o aroma, o sabor decepciona um pouco devido a simplicidade. Justamente por isso a drinkability é excelente e a cerveja é bebida facilmente. Boa com qualquer tio de comida e excelente para ficar bêbado.

floydslip (226) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Deep mahogany beer with a thin light tan head. Rather soft nose of caramel, toffee, and prunes. Flavor is much richer with an initial sweetness of raisins, light molasses, and caramel that is bolstered by an unusual astringent bite all punctuated by a mild, but firm bitterness on the finish.Somewhat unusual beer that has its moments, but gets tiring after a while.

Bottle. Amber-brown with a good & well-lasting off-white head; Aromas of berry fruits and soft leather; Medium bodied, smooth yet with a gentle bite; More fruitiness on palate, with hints of cracked pepper and woody spice. One of my regulars, a good staple drinkable session amber ale.

jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle (gift) consumed at home. Ruby brown. A bit of head, and not as much carbonation as you’d usually expect in a ’supermarket bitter’. Excellent nose: fruitcake, molasses, a hint of smoke. Blackberry and cooton candy. A sweet taste that is satisfying despite not really living up to the aroma. Balanced yet complex bitter finish. Quite a good recipe really, at a strength befitting the beer.

Derbeth (420) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper colour, rocky head that does not stay long, almost no lacing. Aroma is mostly herbal hops, some toffee. Light bitterness, the beer is rather dry, with bitter finish. Light body, soft carbonation, very easy to drink. Quite ok, although the taste might be more intensive.
