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.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Malty aroma with subtle floral and citrus notes. Big malt and caramel flavors with a hint of citrus at the finish. Medium carbonation and body. Nice session beer.

Flavor starts sweet with caramel and some fruitiness, bread finish and some lingering chocolate and sweet caramel. Medium body and a sharP carbonation. Middle of the road

Smooth cocoa and caramel aftertaste. Looks beautiful in a pint glass. Very smooth, but still flavorful.

Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Translucent light brown with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was mainly malty caramel but had some chocolate. Taste was similar to aroma but was mild and maybe a slight dry finish.

Draft at Rich Os. Light brown body with a fizzy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Raw grain aroma with notes of caramel, roast and toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. A sight tartness in the finish, along with some vinegary notes. Flabby, unclean malts. Lacking the richness of a Scottish ale. Disappointing.

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a crystal clear solid copper brown color with a good sized creamy white head that slowly dissipates, but leaves some spotty lace in its wake. Now this beer is still quite cold, freshly poured after coming out of the "regular" refrigerator, but most of what I’m getting from the aroma is an almost tart fruitiness. As this warms it opens up a little and I get more malt with sweet caramel and toffee, bread, and hints of dark fruit. Taste is mild toffee and caramel up front followed by some tart and dark fruits for the dry finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sugary mouthfeel. This one is a bit weird. There’s a tart almost metallic thing going on the aroma. The body is a bit to thin for the style and the flavor should have more rich caramel/burnt sugar maltiness in it, but it doesn’t. This one kind of falls short of expectations.

Can courtesy of motortoddhead. Deep brown red with fluffy off-white head. Toasted malt, light caramel, and a touch of plastic. Toasted malt, biscuit, grain, mild fruit punch, with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Pretty light on the palate.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a DFH shaped pint glass. This beer pours a mahogany/copper/ruby color with a generous amount of off white head that slowly recedes into a small amount of lacing. Very pleasant, although somewhat muted, nose comprised of bready & caramel malts, brown sugar, toffee, and lightly chocolaty. Just the slighted hint of earthy hops. The flavor is very even for the style, not huge and overbearingly sweet, but not weak or watery either. The malt profile is both bready and sweet; with biscuity malts, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee featured prominantly and honey, chocolate, and just a hint of hazelnut to round it out. The hops are almost an afterthought, just enough to make their presence known, but not enough to distract from the malt profile. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and finishes slightly dry. Very drinkable All in all this is a really good beer, a little light for the style, but not overly so. Good stuff, I look forward to trying more from Sun King.
