Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin


Wychwood Brewery is owned by Marston’s. They practice the liberal use of the term ‘craft’ on their website, and give the impression of being a cutting edge craft brewer. Alas, their beers aren’t all that interesting. This, perhaps their most famous, tastes pretty mass produced, I’m afraid. It’s made with chocolate and crystal maltsĀ and Styrian, Goldings and Fuggles hops.

Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin Amber Ale
5.2% alcohol
Bronze/brown in colour. Sweet malty, spicy nose. The fresh, toffeed palate has a herby bite and some earthy notes, with a lemony finish. Tastes a tiny bit chemical. 5/10
