2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A wee hazy, Wee Mac displays reddish brown color and fair head retention. I found the aroma to be a bit chocolately, whereas the flavor is blander than expected, somewhat sweet but with none of the chocolate I hoped for from the smell. The finish is also uneventful.
---Cheers until next time!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted nuts, grain), with notes of metal, grape bubble gum, dirt.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Well, so much for this brewery. As with the pale ale, this is thin, watery, and dirty (surprisingly metallic smelling too...copper pennies galore). Drain pour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. From notes. Roasty toffee and light citrus notes. Nothing super special. Kinda weak actualy but still enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a deep brown color with a nice head that fades. More of an amber brown ale then a scotch. Booze and flavor isn't there

On tap at Detour. Pours a dark amber color with a small head. Aroma and taste is slightly sweet, malty, with a typical scotch ale flavor. Nice drinkable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent Scottish, if not a great among the style. Pours a rather plain jane red tinged brown with decent light tan head. Nose is malty and a little spice. Spicy notes come out a little more in the flavor. Were this beer a little deeper in flavor it could be really very good. As it is, it’s decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can courtesy of StFun (5.3% AVB) pours with a crystal clear amber body and copper hues with a fairly week light tan head. The aroma offers up earthy prunes, cherry meat and Skittles candy as well as molasses and thin ribbons of caramel malts. This smells pretty fruity. The taste delivers a mix of prunes and cherries and sweet malts mixed with molasses and caramel. It gets a bit earthy with malts about midway and evens out nicely into the finish.
