Game Day Beer Review: Wychewood Brewery Hobgoblin Extra Special Bitter

(5.20% ABV).  Hobgoblin poured a reddish amber color, which was darker toward the top of the pint glass. The beer was served on tap at Yard House in Hallandale, and drunk outside in glorious 80 degree sunshine.

Hobgoblin had a thinnish, watery off white head, and smelled of malt and sweet sugar.

The beer was bitter up front, with a strong malty backbone. It displayed a slightly floral hop undertone throughout, which became more apparent in the middle of the taste. 

Hobgoblin was medium bodied. It turned out to be a decent thirst quencher -- not overly complex -- that did the job. B
