Traditionally Crafted Legendary Ruby Beer.
Hobgoblin is strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.
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.

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

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Dark, almost porter coloured with a nice off-white head. Flavours are subtle - licorice, roasted malts. All very gentle with no strong hop flavours but a really tasty Burton type beer. I like it.

NikkTwist (3401) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Cask at Khyber Pass. Dark orange honey brown with a foamy tan head. Light sweet toasted malt notes balanced against a mild hop bitterness. Slight carbonation on the tongue but the body still reads very thin. Flavors are pleasant just not very complicated and too watered down.

dogbomb (1257) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Cask. Deep ruby red with a light tan head. Malt nose with some slight floral hints. In the mouth, nice and solid maltiness throughout, peppered with light grasses, a little spice, some boiled fruits. Finish is sweet, slight bitter and warm.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Very dark with plenty of toffee in the aroma. Taste is balanced by a decent hop character though giving it almost dark fruit flavours. Not great, but better than most beers of this type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Edtorrey (26) - Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2012
Malty and bitter with light aroma hop. Bitter finish but not unpleasant. Medium to dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
