Beer Spotlight: Red MacGregor

Brewer – Orkney Brewery
Red Macgregor is a unique beer: delicate and sophisticated yet the robust cask conditioned version of this beer was the first Scottish beer to win the BIIA World Cask Beer Gold Medal.

On the nose, this ruby-red beer is delicate, floral and fruity, with notes of violets, cherries, toffee and caramel.

On the palate, the fruits combine with a juicy malt character and hints of toasted malt, with a biscuit malt and spicy hop finish.

Appearance
A brilliant ruby-red colour, with a smooth white head
Aroma
Delicious perfumed, floral, lychee aromas from Cascade hops, including notes of violets and rose-water, with hints of spiciness and of toasted malts
Palate
Rich hop fruits, summer berries, lychees, toffee sweetness and toasted malt, giving way to a clean, dry, refreshing, floral hop bitterness

Key Ingredients
Crystal and chocolate malt give this beer its distinctive ruby-red colour, and its backbone of toasted malt flavour; Cascade hops, rarely found in darker beers, give the floral, perfumed fruitiness
