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....

Bottiglia da 0,50. Birra dal gusto molto affumicato. Schiuma scarsa e poco persistente. Gusto corposo e fortemente legnoso. Gradazione media con finale forte e deciso. Forse troppo alcoolica.

This was a different beer it didn't have a great flavor but it wasn't a bud light it was very above average if I had to guess.

Dark red/brown colour. Aroma mainly of malt and hops, not much of anything else. Mild flavour of malt and caramel with hints of fruit and chocolate. Bittersweet aftertaste.

quando me l’hanno stappata davanti avevo una sete boia, perciò vi posso dire che comunque il suo l’ha fatto, poi non addentriamoci in sciocchi commenti inutili...

Fairly dark for an ESB. Bottle to glass with a thinner head and a medium to darker caramel pour. Nose is plenty of caramel and sweeter malts with some biscuit qualities. Some nice pleasant notes or spicy hops and mild citrus that’s muted but noticeable. Smooth and respectably easy drinking. I dig it.

Clear reddish colour. Toast and malted barley aroma. More of the same on the palate with a bit more sweetness and corn mash than expected. Nothing special

#300 rating. Poured from a large bottle. Appearance is a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is toffee, raisin, and orange. Palate is medium. Taste is nice toffee and malt biscuit flavors, with a tinge of raisins like a port, maybe a hint of chocolate. Pretty good, something different.
