Guinness Red

New Product! According to Marketing Week, Guinness are about to launch “Guinness Red”, its first major new product since Guinness Extra Cold.

The new beer will be poured and served like Guinness, and have a similar ABV, but where Guinness is black, Guinness Red will be….red!

No details as to taste – the drink will be made from “lightly roasted barley”: perhaps Publoggers with more discerning beerbuds can comment on what this might imply.

If anyone Googling this has seen it on sale – and we know it’s out there! – let us know in the comments! Thanks!
