It’s a traditional Czech lager brewed in the Northern Bohemian town of Zatec using a trio of Czech Saaz hops. Brewed using a double decoction mash (an intensive approach that gives the beer a fuller body) and three stages of Saaz hopping in copper kettles, Hobo is fermented in open fermentation ‘squares’ for 14 days before being transferred into horizontal lagering tanks sunk deep beneath the brewery back in 1835.

Fairly nondescript larger, cold fizzy as you would expect, better than Carling but that’s not saying allot 😂

330ml can (bb 11 Aug 2017) at home on 6 Feb 2017, from Good Spirits Company, West Nile Street, Glasgow, grassy, grain aroma, golden with a very thin short-lived head, grassy, cereal flavours, oily, sweet.

330ml can. A clear golden colour with a lasting, creamy-frothy white head leaving a soapy lace. Aromas of grain, sweet-accented pale malt, citrus and grassy hop. Similar to taste with a firm, light- to mid-weight palate and a soft to moderate length and intensity hop bitterness to finish.

The_Osprey (9673) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
330ml can at home in Richmond as ’HOBO Beer + Co Craft Czech Lager’, 5.1%, BB Oct 2016. Celebration beer. Translucent orange, sparkling, foamy cratered beige head. Aroma is wet cardboard, soapy water, cereal grains, papier mache. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a little frothy. Taste has more cardboard, tangy metalics, corn, thin malts. It may be made in a more interesting way than most modern pale lagers, but the end result is more of the same. Grew on me.

330ml can at Village Underground enjoying the live concert with Giant Sand & Jason Lytle. Did not see the colour of the beer, feels pale golden. Metallic smell with grass and grain. Similar taste of grass and cereal. Sweet ending. Drinkable (London 11.04.2016).

Can at the Queens Arms. Golden with a decent head. Light lemon and corn on nose and taste. Light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. A decent example of the style.

Evilkniamhel (1049) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2016
From can at queens arms. Nose of bread, citrus fruit, resin. Taste follows nose.

AWS9 (752) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Can. Something odd about declaring yourself a craft beer... anywho, pale straw pour with slight foamy head. Some reasonably sharp hops here, fairly clean tasting, gets a little acidic at the end. Hardly a winner, but not bad.

minutemat (6245) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
330ml can from Sell Fridges. Drunk straight from the can like a real life hobo. Decent, balanced lager with a settled malt sweetness. Good train beer. Enjoyed this.

MrBlueSky93 (535) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from Selfridges. Pours deep golden with a two finger white head on it. Aroma of malt, light fruit flavours, hoppy touch. Initial taste of biscuity malt, hoppy flavours afterwards, lemon, orange, a nice bitterness too. Good.
