Beer a Day Blog

My opinion on a variety of beers.

King Goblin

Happy Hallowe’en! I know I’m a day early, but what the heck. Hope everyone is recovering from Hurricane Sandy and your families are safe. We had some crazy winds here, but nothing like they did along the coast. I resisted the temptation to try one of those wretched pumpkin beers this year. Does anyone actually like them? Decided instead to try one from the always interesting English brewery Wychwood. Thoroughly enjoyed their Hobgoblin so why not try a King Goblin. Like it’s cousin it has a reddish tinge, very smooth and goes down easily. My only criticism is a hint of alcohol taste (6.6%). There is a bitter aftertaste but not overwhelming at all. While I prefer Hobgoblin this Special reserve is worth a try. So put on your costume, or not, and give this beer of limited availability a try.

8/10
