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.

Pours dark amber brown with a small head. Aroma is caramel, malts and fruits. Some dirt. Flavor is a bit bitter. Smooth flavor is caramel, herbs, malts and fruits. Drinkable, easy.

Cask by handpump at Pot Still, Glasgow (10 Mar 12) - clear russet brown, foamy off-white head with a roast nut malt aroma, caramel, oily feel, fairly easy to drink

First came across this strong ale in the Boswell Hotel in March 1993.Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a striking white creamy head. Good fruity aroma with creamy mouthfeel. Pale malt complexes giving a rich malty Dundee cake flavour with syrupy overipe dates, raisins, sultanas and slight milky chocolate notes. Dry nutty almonds in the well balanced aftertaste leading to a dry vinous but sweet finish. Complex with an incredible depth of flavour, very easy to drink more than one! Pity about the change in ABV now!

It’s exactly the kind of beer you’d expect a goblin to drink. Kinda muddy and bitter. It lives up to its name.

Pint on cask at heathrow. Really dark brown color. Lots of foam lace left on the side of the glass. Smells of fruits and toffee. Slight bready carmel flavor. Quite nice. Bye england!

I am very happy to get a chance to review Hobgoblin on cask since I love it in bottle form. Delicious. Deep ruby-black color with thin white head. Caramel fruity malt nose. Medium body and flat. Almost like juice. Peach, nuts, sweet malt, and fruit and a hoppy bitter finish. Great!! One of the best.

Cask @ Pitcher & Piano. Pours dark amber brown with a nice creamy tanned head leaving some lacing. Aorma is toasted, malty, caramel and fruity. Flavor is very similar, not too heavily bittered, smooth and drinkable. Finishes sweet and bitter.
