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.

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.

Pours dark brown with zero head retention. Decent malty taste, but is a bit thin. Not a bad Scottish but not a great one either.

Ed5388 (3065) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2013
16oz can. Pours a dark copper/brown color with a thick fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and toffee. Taste of light roasted malts, toffee, light citrus, and some sourness in the finish.

On tap at Club Soda, Fort Wayne, IN. Looked good in the glass but, absolutely no taste! The worst craft beer Iíve had in a long time.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown with reddish tinges to it and a moderate tan head that quickly disappears. Nose is quite malt with some toasty and almost nutty tones. Taste isnít really sweet at all, but has some nice nuttiness to it. OK.

From the can, dark amber/copper pour, aroma is minor peat with lots of malts, taste is very similar with a little maple. Good, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tall boy can. Maple ruby pour decent head not a lick of retention. If Scottish Ales are Wee Heavy Lights then this is a Scottish Ale Light. Light on peat, malt, and caramel but still tastes pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice clean crisp beer without a lot of hop profile. Not a go-to, but not a run-from either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a pint sized can. Notes of fruit, some sulfur, caramel, soft stone fruits. A touch bland.

Draft at the Fort Wayne release party at CS3. Probably my least favorite of the night. Not bad, mind you... just not great. Thin and mostly expressionless, the malts held my attention for just a moment, then I was ready to go back for another Timmie or Chocolate Cake. This would be nice to suck down the 4pk at the lake/party/wherever without much thought... and with the admittedly impressive canned artwork and "drinkability" (God I feel dirty using that damned AB catchphrase in a craft review), you might use it to pull a few more converts to the craft world. In short, its for non-thinkín drinkín.
