Win a case of Roaring Meg

Nicknamed the Big Blonde, Roaring Meg is a premium strength, cool-filtered golden beer with a citrus honey aroma and a dry finish.

Roaring Meg is handcrafted by one of the UK's few female brewers in the village of Sutton -on -Trent, Nottinghamshire. Springhead Brewery began life as the smallest microbrewery in England in 1990 and has grown from a 2.5 to a 50-barrel plant. Named after a cannon used in the English Civil War, Roaring Meg has a strong following and demand from fans prompted Springhead to release Roaring Meg as its first bottled beer. Since the launch it has won listings in Morrisons

stores nationwide.

OLN has teamed up with Springhead Brewery to offer a case of 12x50cl bottles of Roaring Meg to three lucky winners.

To win the prize, just answer the following question:

From what does Roaring Meg take its name?
