Traditionally Crafted Legendary Ruby Beer.

The ruby red coloured Hobgoblin is full-bodied and has a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity character.

A clear red pint with a thick, lasting and red-tinged head. A sweet aroma and a similarly fruity taste with a hint of spice (ginger, perhaps?) I found it to be a little bit sickly.

Draft at Old Chicago. Nothing really special here. Roasty nuts that seemed quite watered down. I’ll pass.

Very good ale.. I would say a winter drink. Full of flavour. Abit darker than I like.

On tap in Kent. Creamy light brown ale with a nice malt nose. Surprisingly refreshing. Herbs in aroma. Great.

On tap in Hawkinge, Kent @The Mayfly. Nice, creamy, long lasting head with dark, creamy body. Taste of caramel and nuts. Unfortunately the beer got a bit watery in the pint the more it was drunk, but nevertheless a great taste.

This beer has a really interesting aroma. It smells much like an ale but there is something different which I can’t out my finger on. It had a malty flavor and finishes clean.

Very sour characteristically british aroma. The beer is a gorgeous dark ruby color. Malty flavor with a bitter finish.
