On October 1st, Rogue will bring an old favorite out of retirement after nearly a decade — XS McRogue Scotch Ale.
Unlike most Scottish Ales, which are light in color and body, McRogue Scotch Ale is a hearty brew, deep copper in color, with a caramel aroma, rich malty flavor and a roasted malt background.
McRogue Scotch Ale originally debuted at the 1995 Oregon Brewers Festival. It is made with 10 ingredients: Great Western Harrington, Klages, Beeston Amber & Pale Chocolate & Weyermann Caramunich Malts; Kent Golding and Rogue Micro Hopyard Revolution Hops; Rolled Oats, Free Range Coastal Water and Top Fermenting Pacman Yeast.
Brewing Specifications: 17.5o Plato, 45 IBU, 75 AA, 28.6o Lovibond.
McRogue will be available on draft and in 7-ounce serigraphed “nip” bottles.
McRogue Scotch Ale is brewed using hops from the Chatoe Rogue hopyard in Oregon’s Wigrich Appellation and barley from the Rogue barley farm in Oregon’s Tygh Valley Appellation. Rogue remains committed to saving the terroir of Oregon hops and barley, one acre at a time, by growing our own.
