King Goblin

Single 500 mL bottle from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA , USA.
Superb color on the pour, giving a beautiful, garnet clarity that I seldom see these days. Color is deep and present. Head is to be frank, a little disappointing. Small, not well retained although the lace defies he lack of retention.
Nose and tastes give up a classic biscuit malt and a light touch which defines the style (at least in the bottle). Some hoppy notes are added to the alcohol which produce a nice balance of drying malts and satisfying digestive like tastes.
The beer fills a HUGE void in the USA for lovers of the style, and whilst we all know that the cask equivalent would blow this away, it still represents a solid offering that helps define a bottled version of the style.
Lovely weight, excellent balance and a beer that I will turn to time and time again (as long as I can get it).
Simplicity. Goodness. Balance. Class.
