Guest beer – Red Riding Hood

June 2015

Fresh in from Nottingham’s Castle RockIMG_6199 brewery, we’ve got Red Riding Hood on the guest pump. And no, you Game of Thrones fans, that’s not Casterly Rock!

At 4.3% ABV, this is a dark, red-brown beer (“red-blooded”, say the brewers!). Tastes: Fruity, Subtle Bitterness, Toasted Malt. New from them in 2014 – this beer was previously known as ‘Lincoln Red’ but now renamed (with a nod to Nottingham’s legendary historic outlaws) it has joined Castle Rock’s permanent menu.

No score yet on ‘‘ – but this one’s going down well (and going fast) in The Swan.

Edit: all gone in three days. The Swan liked this one!
