Good price for the 5L Keg, I normally pick up a bottle or two from time to time.
May get one this weekend if I see them in my local. Prices been up and down on them but I don't reckon I've seen £10 or below, unless they were found reduced in store.

Storage:

The ideal serving temperature of your Hobgoblin is between 8°C & 12°C, the temperature of the perfect pub cellar. How to serve your Hobgoblin Best consumed within 3 days of opening. Step 1: Turn the tap on the side of the cask to the right by a quarter turn and pull it out from the cask until it stops. Step 2: With a glass under the tap press the red button to dispense your Hobgoblin. Step 3: When beer flow slows lift the tab located on the top of the cask and quarter turn left or right to vent the cask. Then resume pouring. Step 4: After pouring return top vent to the closed position - quarter turn back. Remember to reopen before next pour.

I love Hobgoblin but find these kegs a gimmick, The first few pints are all froth unless you cool it right down to 3 or 4 degrees then you also loose the flavour because it's too cold, and if you don't drink the entire keg within 2 days the rest goes flat and stale because you have to allow oxygen into the keg to allow it to pour.
The standard cans work out at the same price per Litre in Asda and contain the same % drink but you can drink them whenever you want.
Kegs may be a good party novelty but otherwise buy the cans.

I would reduce the temperature before opening to prevent it frothing up all over the place.
I am sure I had some bottles of this and it was 5%

Hobgoblin is my favourite tipple by far, but I'm thinking of suing them for image rights, as they keep using my photo on all their merchandise.

You are correct.
The bottled variety is 5.2%
Good find. Any Hobgoblin Gold for the same price?

Yes. Asda have been selling Gold & Hobgoblin 4 x 500ml cans £4 for weeks if not months now, therefore no need to buy 5ttr keg size to get same value.

A good brew & price but I'm not mad on these space wasting kegs - happy with the £1.25 500ml bottles at Lidl

Picked 2 up yesterday.They have been selling them for £6.56 reduced to clear in Tesco Lichfield yesterday.
if you buy enough you can build a raft
Too much waste in keg form and a chew to chill.
I think everyone buys one keg, realises that it’s not what it’s cracked out to be and doesn’t bother again...not a fan of standard hobgoblin, the gold however is nice

Bottles surely?

Bottles surely?


Yep! bottles are nicer and also more abv% but the cans are cheaper and I was doing a direct comparison with the kegs.
What do these taste like? I've never tried it, so any comparison would be helpful. I've seen this brand for many years but just thought it was for Dungeons and Dragons type people...

Quite malty and only a little bit of bitterness. Goes fantastic with any beefy food. Put a roast beef in a slow cooker and pour this in until it almost covers it. Cook for 8 hours on low. Use the juices to make your gravy instead of water. It's bloody unbelievable. Wash it down with more Hobgoblin. I know you didn't ask about food, but it's so tasty, everyone needs to know.
