Wychwood Hobgoblin

I think that the thing that attracted me to this beer more than anything else was its label. It just goes to show you how a decently designed or unique label can help sell your brew amongst the competition. I’m glad that I was a sucker for the art.

Beer Label: Wychwood Hobgoblin


There wasn’t anything particularly dominating within the aroma of the beer. There is a slight nuttiness to it with hints of malt. It’s got a very pleasing and welcoming smell.


The beer pours a clean reddish brown with a slight head that slowly faded to light lacing.


Again, there is no one characteristic that demands your full attention. It’s a well balanced and thoroughly drinkable ale. It’s nutty with a small hint of hops in the finish.


I really enjoyed this one. It was smooth and creamy. The slight hoppiness on the finish meshed well with the nutty character of the beer. A six pack of this wouldn’t last long. Rating: 3.5/5
