Wee Mac is a Scottish style brown ale. Fermented at cooler than normal temperatures to mimic the climate of Scotland. Wee Mac is an easy drinking brown ale that is both smooth and malty wit caramel and chocolate tones. Hops are used sparingly in this beer and serve only to help balance the sweetness of the malt.

A pretty decent scottish ale. Darker than most. Chocolate and coffee. Some caramel and sweet bread. Picked this up at the Indy airport in 2016.

Dark reddish pour from 16oz can at Home. Carmel and malty flavor. Rich and full body. Not bad for the style

Finhead (1632) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Slightly hazy, amber-brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has toasted malt and mild caramel. It has a light, somewhat thin body with average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a slightly sticky finish.earthy,

can @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- 11/May/2016 --- Aroma of malt. Clear dark orange amber brown color, beige head that slowly shrinks to a cover, light lace dots. Taste is malt that sweeps into medium carbonation that then ushers in what I can only conclude is Coke. Light hops in a short finish. It’s only been three months since May, but I believe this is past its date.

2015 BJCP Category: 14C Scottish Export

AROMA: Low maltiness with faint confectionery notes and red fruit. Nose is mild overall, though. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Clear dark copper/burgundy hue. Large off-white foam quickly and completely dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Mild, bland palette. Malt-focused, but little distinct character. Trace confectionery notes; slightly minerally. No hop presence. Can is fairly fresh but seems old, though no signs of oxidation. 8/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Watery texture. Smooth and easy to drink; clean aftertaste. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Entirely too bland to enjoy. No glaring flaws, just not to style. 4/10

Great choice as a second one from Sun King! Beautiful Amber color and inviting aroma give this brew its character.
