Purchased last summer in New Jersey at my favorite beer store stop in the state, on sale for an irresistable $2.87. Since I like malty British beers generally and had already enjoyed Hobgoblin (purchased previously at the same store), I had to give this a try.

Poured from the 25.4 ounce bomber into a Victory Donnybrook Stout nonick.

a: Translucent amber with a two inch thick offwhite head which receded to thin surface foam and dense patchy lacing.

s; Caramel malt and light fruit.

t: Same as nose. The fruitiness is somewhat muted but a combination of mainly pear and apple. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Full, great body, good carbonation tingle.

o: An excellent ESB, very drinkable and full of malty goodness, with just enough slightly bitter fruit notes to keep the malt from being overly sweet. I would definitely buy this again.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a darkish ruby/ amber colour with 2 finger creamy head with good retention. Fair amount of lacing. Not quite transparent.

S- Very malty with sweeter notes of caramel,toffee, etc.

T- Still malty with a slight earthiness. Mild hop aroma. Pretty tame.

M- Low Carbonation with medium body.

O- Another great brew from Wynchwood. Lots of great characteristics that are typical of an English style Bitter. Malt forward but complimented nicely with a slight bitterness. Wynchwood's Hobgoblin is much more flavourful in my opinion but King Goblin is quite similar but with that added alcohol kick. I recommend.

This is a malt forward beer with notes of cookie, honey, toffee, and some toasted grains. The hops is very subdued but tastes of grass and herbs. The yeast lends flavors of dough and earth. The scents of cookie, toffee, toasted grains and earth are noticeable when bringing the glass to your mouth.

One of the best from this brewer. Lots of lovely hops waft over the big malt backbone . Tastes quite a bit like Bah Humbug
