The Legendary Ruby Beer from Wychwood Brewery
Hobgoblin is a traditionally craft brewed with chocolate & crystal malts and a blend of Styrian, Goldings & Fuggles hops to produce a full-bodied, Ruby beer that delivers a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour, balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and and overall fruity, mischievous character.
Golden Seahawk formerly known as Golden Eagle became a regular brew in Summer 2001 and has rapidly become a firm favourite with local drinkers.
Seahawk is traditionally brewed with Devon pale and crystal malted barley which gives the beer its characteristic bright golden colour. Carefully selected Goldings, Challenger and Styrian hops provide a fragrant aroma with a background of honey flavour offering a fruit filled smooth finish.
Hophead at 3.8% is one of our most popular beers and has a huge following across the south coast and I am sure even much further.
Hophead is a pale golden colour, cool crisp and refreshing with a slight hoppy bitterness. Many of our customers who drink it say that they seem to get drunk drinking this as opposed to drinking some of the stronger beers. That's because it's too 'moreish' and they always end up drinking more than they realise!
From time to time, in addition to Hophead, we will also be serving other Ales from Dark Star's excellent range.
Great with a packet of pork scratchings or a hot pie!
