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.

Pours a rich mahogany brown with a thin off-white head that dissipated quickly. nose is light malt and chocolate. Taste is similar. Debating if the palate is ’thin’ or ’clean’. Though not a challenge, the beer is enjoyable with the pleasant roasty malt that isnt too intense.

Can thanks to Josh! Pours a clear deep red with a bit of brown and a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and hay with a bit of must and toffee. Flavor begins with bread and toffee but has a bit of an odd musty finish. Pretty average.

Pours a dark reddish-brown that some light gets through. Malty sweetness on the nose and in the flavor. Some subtle roastiness in the finish. Very easy to drink and pretty tasty.

Pint can courtesy of StFun – Thanks big J! Muddy brown with a one finger tan head that faded fast. The nose is caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is caramel, dark fruits and light cocoa. Medium bodied. Not great, but happy to try it – thanks again Josh!

16 ounce can shared by BrewEngineer at Butters Slutfest 2.0, Richmond, VA, 4.23.11. Pours a clear medium brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Grainy aroma with a faint bit of caramel. The taste is caramel, grain and a cola-like note. Medium bodied. Not bad and fairly refreshing but weird for a Scottish ale.

Growler: Clean caramel brown hue with a small but lasting fizzy head, some spotty lace. The aroma has notes of hazelnut and walnut, caramel, bready, and aromatic malts, hint of cold pressed coffee and bakers chocolate, and a dash of noble hops. The taste is malt driven but not overly sweet. Some light coffeeish and hop bitterness does come through. The biggest objection I have with this brew is the lightness of the mouth feel. Sure it is shockingly easy to drink but almost to the point of becoming watery and boring. The palate is dumbed down for the masses and that is a shame. Otherwise I dug most of what this beer had to offer.

16 ounce can, pours a cola color with a creamy off white head. Has the aroma of caramel, burnt toast, malt, and nuts. Flavor matches the aroma, that has medium carbonation, and a malty finish.

Can. Caramel malt and hay aroma. Medium brown color with nice head. Sweet chocolate caramel malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice - on the sweet side.

Thanks to Josh for the tall boy! Wee Mac = Tyrion Lannister? Scottish brown seems about right, as this brew isn’t quite your typical Scottish and certainly not your typical brown. Vigorous pour required careful monitoring to avoid counter spillage. Murky light copper pour, head fades very quickly to leave the thinnest scrim. Nose is hugely fruity, almost to the exclusion of anything else, and what’s there is more bright and floral than is customary for the style. Full mouthfeel, feels more carbonated than it ends up looking. Taste is too sweet, even some vanilla syrup creeping in there along with the bright fruit adjuncts. And the whole fades a bit quickly in the finish. Weird.

Can from stfun. Light cola brown thin tiny head. Very dry and malty with some nuttiness.
