Friday's Beer and Just Because!

Hallowe'en .... and the goblins have taken over my internet and computer.

Couldn't get a post together last night and not this afternoon ... right up until now when I finally got Blooger to load a page for me.

And so .....

"Hobgoblin is a powerful full-bodied copper red, well-balanced brew. Strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.

Head Brewer, Jeremy Moss, has produced a full chocolate malt flavour beer by the addition of a small proportion of crystal malt and the use of Fuggles hops blended with Styrian Goldings hops. The ruby red coloured Hobgoblin is full-bodied and has a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity character."

Imagine if you will sitting in an English Garden waiting for the rain ........!

But this garden is located outside a bakery that is producing bountiful chocolate laced and fruit flavoured treats that permeate the nearby atmosphere.

Thats the kind of complicated aroma that the Goblin breaths into your world.

The bottle opens with a nice pop and fizz. Pours with vigorous effervescence and produces a hearty top of creamy froth that hangs on till you take a couple sips.

The beer tastes clean if a little on the hoppy side ( which I like ) and leaves the mouth feeling refreshed and well prepared for another taste. Deeper draughts are rewarding as well.

Thumbs Up for the Mischievious Little Imp from the Big Brown Bottle!

Remember FNB&B at the Broom ...
