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.

BeerManic (21) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
Deep ruby red ale with a creamy off-white lasting head. Looks pretty good in a glass. Malt dominated nose, with little in the way of hop character. Nice enough, but not enough interest.

deep red amber colour with a thin white head. slight aroma of yeast and a bit of malt. not as thick in the mouth as i’d expected. and almost overpowered by the sweetness of the fruit

AROMA: chocolate, caramel, hint of licorice, roasty APPEARANCE: brown, clear, minimal head TASTE: medium sweetness, lightly bitter PALATE: light body, thin feel, soft carbonation OVERALL: aromas are quite faint and the thin palate makes this beer miss the mark.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2015 On tap at King’s Head W2. Deep colour with red-purple tinge in the depths. Smooth, fruity and malty on the palate with a hint of bitterness cutting through into the not overly long finish. Pleasant dark bitter. Re-rate in Elephant and Castle W8. Review stands but score was a bit miserly, upgraded slightly.

Vignale (3824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
Någonstans mellan brown ale och premium ale. Mer malt än humlekaraktär. Fruktig och blommig med nötter, karamell och skogspromenad i smakbilden. Bra! Kommer mer till sin rätt på fat. Alla smaker djupare, munkänslan lenare. Drucken på the Spread Eagle, Liss, Hampshire, UK

hayduke (5203) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
From a cask in London. It came in the glass dark copper color with a small white head. Good nose of malts and nuts. Body medium and mouthfeel creamy smooth with low carbonation. Flavor of caramel malts and nuts. Bitter finish. Easy drinking

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells malty.

Cask. My second rate of a beer in both cask and bottle form. This was tried whilst on holiday in the Isle of Man wth my lovely wife Glenys in July 2011. For some reason it is fairly easy to obtain on the island.Not a lot of body and lacks complexity.Taste what it is- a bitter for mass cosumption. Boring and bland.
