looks ok, smells nice, sweet and hard to describe somewhere between toffee and fudge. good fruity bitter taste with hints of caremel, has a surprisingly clean finish.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Last time I had this it the smell and taste reminded me of used kitty litter. Had it again in a selection box of Wychwood Ales and much better this time. Went from 2.3 to a 3. I guess some batches may be suspect.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Nose is some pine notes and a little sweetness, taste is sweet caramel with a medium bitterness. No hobgoblin nothing special

Zilb (406) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2017
Offerte par Pills & Vivi. 7 mois avant DLC. Ambrée, petite mousse carbo faible. Arôme malt grillé. Malt grillé en bouche, léger houblonnage. Trop légère, un peu aqueuse. Rien de spécial.

might seem a bit cheap to compare it to the brewery's other offerings however this is very reminiscent of the bottled hobgoblin ale, but with some of the alcoholic "bite" taken out; goliath is a lot smoother and maltier, with a biscuit base that makes it even, although less darker than the goblin. the slightly lower ABV makes it easier to drink too. overall, a decent real ale, would love to try it on tap/cask/keg if the opportunity ever arose.

BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle, pours orange tinged brown with a fast-settling head and light aromas of toasted orange and caramel. Sweetish malt with a toasty and spicy bitter edge. A decent bitter.

Aroma and flavor is caramel/nutty malts, light fruit and a mostly smooth/drinkable finish.

It was a ruby bitter and that was about it. Drinkable, tasty, but immedialtely forgettable. There is not much more to say!
