With the last of the One-Eyed Rye disappearing from the taps at the Lord Nelson and featuring at Newcastle's Craft Beer Week, that means there's room for something new at the hotel in The Rocks. And that new thing is the Royal Red, another beer that follows the Lord's passion for all things British and beery. It's an English mild ale, designed with sessionability at heart, and coming with "a nice hop aroma, malty palate and drying bitterness on the finish." The Lord, which knows a thing or two about beer and food pairing, says it's "perfect with sirloin and pommes frites" or a steak sandwich. That they happen to serve both in their Brasserie and Bar respectively is pure coincidence!!
