3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
King Goblin 500mL, unfortunately out of the bottle.
Skunk, straw, English hops. Sweet with a bitter alcoholy finish. Medium bodied, silky and creamy. On occasion, I love me a nice hobgoblin, but this just doesn't seem to be worth the effort and elevated price. Solid, but not spectacular.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a cloudy orange colour with a thin white bubbly head. The aroma is rich and malty with slightly fruity notes which gave you the promise of something more to come. The flavour is very bitter with bags of liquorice and spice which totally dominates the beer. The palate is bitter and there’s a lingering liquorice aftertaste too. At just 6.6% this is a very bitter beer where the flavour comes more from the hops rather than the alcohol. It’s a very decent beer though and I’d certainly order it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 50 cl - Orange amber beer with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, dates, raisins, apricots and alcohol. Flavor is malty with notes of apricots, caramel, dates and earthy hops. A bit unbalanced as the hops take very little space in this beer, however it is very true to style.

Har haft den här flaskan i kylskåpet i säkert ett år. Hela tiden varit säkert på att den skulle vara tjock och mindre god. Men ack så fel
