    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Yes, I've had it numerous times. I prefer it in the can over the bottle. The clear bottles and importation from England tend to damage the beer, skunking it . I've never had it on tap. Good stuff... one of my more preferred English ales.

    Good news, Hobgoblin comes in brown bottles now. I don't know what the turnover is in the rest of the world but where I live they started showing up in brown bottles around December 2006.

    And yes, I do enjoy a good Hobgoblin from time to time. Now that Wychwood is using brown bottles I'll have to try their Blackwych Stout. Every time I've tried that it had been really skunky and was always put off by it. Odd thing though, I never had a skunked Hobgoblin before (even in clear bottles).
