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.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, dark copper colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, leather, a subtle fruity touch and shades of spicy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty malty, slightly bready taste with caramel, shy fruity notes and spicy hops; moderately dry and bitter hoppy finish with a mildly sweet malty and toasty counterpart, accompanied by a mildly fruity aftertaste. Okay, reliable. 12.III.14

edsspoon (146) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Pours ruby red with a thick off-white head that disappears to a ring. Aroma is dark fruits, nuts and a touch of alcohol. Taste is fruity, malty, dry, very sweet and a lightly bitter aftertaste. Some hints of spice and banana. The flavour seems really nice but also very lacking and kind of watery, which is a shame.
