maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Canned. A dark brown coloured beer which pours quite flat looking. The aroma has some fruity malts but a tin feel to it - more from the pasteurisation than the dispense method - The taste seems quite old aleish with some deep fruits and notes of liquorice but lots of caramel. Decent at first but seems very artificial then becomes very sickly sweet and sugary.Score 2.6
Subsequent ratings scored 2.8, 2.5, 3.1, 2.7 and 3.2. Average becomes 2.8

I wasn’t overly impressed with this english ale that I got on draft; however, it is not my favorite style. Poured a medium dark brown hue and lacked anything noticeable on the nose. Strongly bitter, but not my type of hops. Cool name though, must use the term "Hobgoblin" more often. This term best describes a few people (cough...co-workers..cough) that I know.

This is probably my favorite brewery so far for this style. Smells like a cream ale. Looks good, quite tasty and hopy. A dry, very grainy finish. but a beer I could have again, in moderation.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle from LCBO. Dark, burnished brown with a small head. Aroma is somewhat sweet and roasty, not bad. Flavours of caramel, nut and roasted malt, with a moderately bitter finish. Simple and well-balanced.

3.2
bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2006
Pourd a fairyl dark but clear brown. Aroma of my bottel was lightly skunky thanks to the clear bottle. Not bad enough to really be a problem. Caramel flavors dominate with some roasted flavors in the background. A slightly better finish. A well balanced ale, and not offensive.
