Hobgoblin. Hobgoblin is a curiously-named red ale, brewed with Chocolate and Crystal malts and three varieties of hops.
It pours a reddish-brown color with an off-white head and a hoppy aroma.
The flavor is malty, but tempered with a mild to moderate hops bitterness. It's not bad at all, but definitely not my favorite beer.
This is another of those beers that splits the editors of the Beer Advocate site from their visitors. Visitors rate Hobgoblin 83 (or "good") while the editors call it "exceptional" and give it a 91.
My rating: 6/10
