Hatherwood Ruby Rooster Ruby Ale Tasting

Mar 21, 2017 | Beer, Beer Reviews

As mentioned previously, Lidl have started selling some more varied beer, which is labelled as ‘Hatherwood’.

These are handily numbered, so I’ll make my way through then when I can.

Number 4 is a ruby ale, and it’s apt moniker is ‘The Ruby Rooster’.

It poured with a lovely tight foamy head, and is a very dark reddish hue. Much like how Guinness is not actually black.

It’s so dark, it almost tricks your brain into thinking it will be a weighty behemoth, but this is not he case.

Its pretty thin at 3.8 and I feel It needs more weight. But there was some chocolate malt in there whilst being certainly refreshing. Not what I was expecting, but not one I’ll be buying again.

Have you tried The Ruby Rooster? If you have, what do you think? Which other Hatherwood ales do you think are the best?

Feels like a while since we’ve explored a new place due to COVID and the toddler, so a visit to the Cotswolds came at the perfect time this spring.

After Improssibrew present their beers on Dragon’s Den, I decided to try it for myself to see if this so-called ‘social blend’ worked.
