Description according to label:

5.000 years in the making. Hand crafted in small batches. An intensely hoppy, ruby red beer with a delicious, delicate aroma and a rich, rewarding palate.

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

The Orkney Brewery beers are brewed in tune with the ecology of our beautiful corner of the Northern Isles.

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.

Norman Sinclair recommends drinking his Red MacGregor with casseroles, pies and smoked cheese.
