This is a pale ale of sound quality but no great distinction. The aroma and mouthfeel are less than noteworthy although the taste is what you'd expect from a pale ale. Billed as a "ruby beer" it does have a sweet finnish which Comes through the mild hopping. No grassy Fuggles coming through for me. Pleasant.

Wasn't sure which category to put this under as it was a Hobgoblin Red Ale but couldn't find that exact category. Nice deep reddy brown in nonic pint glass. Mild earthy hoppyness in the scent which I really like. The taste is a bit thinner than the nose which was disappointing. Mouthfeel fine with decent carbonation. Main issue with this is that first sip and aroma promised much more than the overall pint experience delivered. I would have it again but only if it was up against the usual lager suspects.

For me, it would be ok to make this THE "official Halloween beer". Not just a very good autumn beer, also got a delicate toffee touch.
