COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From a can into an Ommegang chalice. Pours reddish brown with a large light brown head and lace. Aroma of rich malts and earth. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light malts, minerals, slight hay notes and caramel sweetness. Overall relatively easy drinking yet lacking the roasty, peaty, smoky or darker body I’ve had from other Scottish ales. Grainy, dry finish is to style.

16 oz can poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, earthiness and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of toffee, caramel and light earthiness with a crisp lingering toffee finish.

DrSilverworm (6033) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2014
16oz can, from Big Red in Indianapolis. Code on bottom of the can reads 14120. Pours a mostly clear brown amber color. Off-white head is bigger at first, but quickly fizzes away to a thin ring that doesn’t leave much head and just loose bits of lace. Caramel malt and dark fruity aroma. Bit of chocolate. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Solid scottish ale.

tony1941 (9) - - JUN 15, 2014 does not count
amber color - very little head - toffee and coffee flavor and aroma easy to drink but the flavor wasn’t there for me

Chudwick (2010) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2014
Growler share at DLD - nose and sip remind me more of a brown ale. It was kind of flat but a nice change of pace from BA stouts.

geeklimit (145) - USA - APR 26, 2014
Good carbonation, no head and a dark cola color. Aroma is toffee and slight coffee. Malt flavor with toffee and slight cola. Clean mouth feel with a slightly sticky aftertaste.

NeoHippie2 (938) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2014
Clear brown pour with a small off-white head. Faint aromas of caramel and toffee. Flavor is mild maltiness not much depth. Easy to drink and unoffensive but not much going on here. Bland and boring.

DutchHillbilly (62) - Mattawan, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Heavy head. Mild caramel flavor. Doesn’t hold head long. Mild aftertaste. Good brown ale. Lightly carbonated.

rxeight (1234) - Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
On tap as time bar in Indy. Light body. Slight acortiah ale taste but not much going in. Not bad. But not impressive either. Easy drinking. Good beer to have with a burger.
