Hobgoblin 5l mini keg reduced in Morrisons Stewartfields, East kilbride. Was £15 Now £10

Traditionally craft brewed with Chocolate & Crystal malts & a blend of Styrian, Goldings & Fuggles hops. A full-bodied ruby beer that delivers a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour, balanced with a moderate bitterness & an overall fruity, mischievous character.

I can't confirm if national, but did see the Budvar keg reduced down to £12 yesterday in Oxted
(I have to question other HUKD members tastes, as the deal before Christmas several people commented how great Budvar was - I got 2 kegs and thought it tasted quite rancid. Like cheap all-inclusive holiday beer - each to their own)

Yes I also confirm the budvar tastes like rancid goats wee..
The Hobgoblin is where its at
!

no not national, most probs short date

i was in my local today and i always look

Budvar is a lager, not a "real" beer so comparable to Foster's, Carling and the like rather then a beer/ale like Hobgoblin.

Great deal for a mini keg.

Had the Budvar at Christmas, thought it was okay... a bit gassy out of its can though - reckon we only got about 4/5 full pints out of it after it settled. Maybe I was serving it wrong

How many should I have got? Quite tempted by this though!

Heated OP.

I had one at Christmas. Delicious but slow to pour. It took longer to fill the glass than empty it.

Got the Budvar at Christmas and it was absolutely awful to pour. Bubbles everywhere. Only got 3 or 4 pints from it or there abouts as it was useless. Never again. Anyone have any tips on how to use correctly as they seem rubbish?

I got about 8 pints out of my Budvar. Poured fine, first couple were a bit foamy. Got me nice and smashed. Would buy again

Shame it has to be drunk within 3 days of starting as it states. had one, sorry two over xmas! Good stuff! . If I can find a couple more, that's two w/e's sorted... Kids can sort themselves out...

£15 in Parkgate Rotherham

Can this be rigged up in intravenous drip and wheeled around with you?

nice and smashed

lol

Most you lot on here are not talking about the deal, and another beer. wtf!

I will have to pop in after work... This would make a nice little gift for my husband if it's in my local store! thx x

Love hobgoblin (bottled) but from the cans it tastes werid (typical metally taste), is it the same from these kegs?

Would sooner buy 10 bottles from Aldi at £1.25 each (£12.50) and not have to rush through drinking 5 litres

Personally from kegs real ale is good but needs to be drunk within 2 days in my experience. You should get nearly 9 pints if my maths is correct. I got a Budvar one before Christmas and I would not get one again too fizzy beer all over the place head was too big on the pints and made me ill as I'm sure it went off the next day. This is a good deal though heat added

A mini keg should keep for 4 days so you only need to drink 2 pints a day.

To be fair though these mini kegs are aimed at parties rather than individuals so if you have no friends and aren't an alcoholic you're probably best off with bottles.

My friend drop dead Fred does not drink so it would just be me with the keg on my own

If you're not drinking it all by yourself in one sitting you're doing it wrong.

Yep - the reason the cans/kegs don't taste as good is that they drop the strength to 4.5%.

Compared to the "original" 5.2% draft/bottles it loses a lot of its flavour and tastes more flat and tinny in my opinion.

With these kegs you always lose a bit as you can't quite extract the whole 5 litres, but a good price nontheless. Our local Waitrose has Hobgoblin Gold priced at £14..

Use a can opener

:oO

good for anyone who does homebrew & want to reuse the keg.
Though the 5.2 stuff is only £1.25 for 500ml in tesco atm..

before xmas morrisons had hobgoblin, hobgoblin gold, budvar & speckled hen for £10 a keg

I'd have had the Hobgoblin Blonde. Less keen on the darker one. The Blonde's a nicer taste

They used to do a lager one of these, think it was Heineken. Was great for parties but think it has now been discontinued. Shame really as not an ale fan.

Put the other end of the catheter into the Budvar keg and you have perpetual motion.

Btw...seems a good deal..!

I only have a small fridge which is a shame, I also have man flu and feel hobgoblin is the cure

Open the air value at the top until it clears out all the pressure then leave it semi open when your using it. Close it backup if your not using them for while, rinse and repeat.

Took about 3 half pints before I twigged on, still let the brother in law pour a few pints of pure head before I told him

Put it in the garden and it will chill to about the right temp .... if it ever gets colder

Bought the Old Speckled Hen when it was on offer before Christmas. Absolutely awful, never again. Beer was flat. Wrote to company and expressed my disappointment and received £20 worth of vouchers as i bought 2 kegs, one of which is still in the shed unopened.
