Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin Ruby Beer

Hobgoblin 120514

You’d be forgiven for thinking you just went back in time viewing this label but this is one serious meaty beer.

We sipped this close to its best before with food – a very pleasant fruity slightly Caramel taste to accompany the meal.

From one of Lesley’s Christmas Beer Hampers.

Tony introduced this on our trip to Nottingham (having used the excuse of seeing the Grimethorpe Colliery Band – stars of the “Brassed Off” movie as a reason to visit).

Very tasty and morish. Superior to the likes of Smithwicks, O’Hara’s, Galway Hooker etc. – slightly lower in Alcohol and still  hoppy but less tarty.
