Drink: Hobgoblin Gold
Source: Wychwood Brewing Co., Witney, England
Size: 500 mL tallboy
This golden-straw coloured offering from Oxfordshire follows in the footsteps of Wychwood’s ruby Hobgoblin Ale, albeit in a lighter fashion.
Floral and lemon hops (Pilgrim, Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Summit) on the nose with a hint of orange zest.
The wheat balances out the barley maltiness to add to the light mouthfeel, with citrus edges on the tongue.
A crisp and balanced finish.
Great for summer days and lighter fare such as fish and chips, though skewing to the more expensive side.
Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
