passed on this many a time. wasnít a great beer, but better than most Iíve had of theirs. a little better body and more life to it. lightly sweet and bitter. I do see where the last reviewr says "the wrong kind of bitterness" but I thought it ok.

DruncanVeasey (8216) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Copper with a cream head receding to a halo. Pleasantly heady aroma; mulled apple, berries, nutmeg, caramel and alcohol; just a rub of musky hop as it warms. More apple strudel fruitiness and spice on the palate; fine carbonation, cranberry, some chestnut and doughy egg custard emerging on the swallow, slight tack of candy floss. Hobgoblin turned up to 10 and pipetted with nail polish remover. I like it. A slightly offputting, radicchio/chiccory bitterness that lingers and doesnít quite fit, but a better beer than I thought Wychwood were allowed to make if Iím honest.

berkshirejohn (6330) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2010
50cl bottle from Morrisons. Deep gold with a rapidly fading white head that laces the glass nicely; rich fruity aroma, apricots and peaches; toffee malt flavour; with a dry finish.

fsbw21086 (481) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Aroma is very malty and surprised me when i took the first sip. Taste is of carmel, hops and alcohol. Slightly watery and ends very dry. I thought it would be more full bodied but instead was strong tasting with a light/alcohol palette.

imdownthepub (14035) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Copper with off white head. Big malty beer with a light, metallic, tinny note, slightly boiled hints, but these give a touch of depth to this beer. Dry leafy notes and a lashing of caramel, its really quite easy on the palate. O.k.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear coppery amber pour with a foamy beige head that doesnít last long. Aroma is both fruity and malty with notes of toffee, raisins, cherries, figs and nuts. Flavour is very similar but with a stronger malt profile and hints of molasses, apples and sherry. Light, dry mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Nice, easy to drink and comparatively full-bodied English ale, probably slightly superior to the regular Hobgoblin but not hugely different.
