Russula nobilis (syn. Russula mairei)

grows with beeches, is very acrid and has a bluish hue in the gills when you turn the cap around. And it is more vividly red.
If the stem is very hard and the context relatively mild but tasting like cedar wood in some component it is Russula lepida (syn. R. rosea) which is a very common fellow in oak woods.
