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.

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.

Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Clear deep amber light brown color. One and a half fingers of nitro-esque beige head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left. 3.75 S: Nutty and toasty from the start like a good brown ale. Caramel and brown sugar. Crisp, clean maltiness. On the drier side, but still enough sweetness to hit the spot. 3.75 T: Like the nose this is crisp, clean, and tasty. Plenty of toastiness and caramel. Nuttiness underneath, dry grainy maltiness. Not as rich or as sweet as most of the style out there, but I donít think itís supposed to be. It works quite well for what it is. 3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. 4.0 D: Super drinkable with a good taste. ★ 759 characters DavoleBomb, Jul 15, 2015

Pint can shared poured a light clear brown color with tan head. No lacing to speak of, the aroma is caramel malts with hints of chocolate malts slightly sweet malts. The flavor brings more of the same with the caramel and chocolate malts being predominate. Slightly sweet malts mild to medium body easy to drink.

Can, straight from the can. If this beer was green Iíd have no idea. I assume its normal appearance so I gave it a 3 for that. Aroma is caramel malts, sugar/sweet with a hint of chocolate. Quite nice actually. Thats a 7. Beer is sweet, malty, no hops. Caramel/chocolate undertones. Pretty nice, smooth and easy drinker. Nothing spectacular. Probably a 6.5. I gave it a 6. Palate? I donít have a fucking palate. Its easy to drink. 3. No idea how this is rated so poorly. Its not great but its certain pretty good, especially for the style. 3.4-3.6

Comes reddish brown with a small tan head. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is similar. Somewhat sweet, but very drinkable. Too much like a brown ale. 1/15

Can, somewhere in Indianapolis I canít remember. Weak, bland and all-together a bad experience. Would never go down this road again.

On draft at the happy hour of the Staybridge Suites I was staying at (!). Pours dark brown with a bit of tan head. Nose is caramel and light toasted bready malt. Taste is the same--mostly dry but with enough caramel to balance it out and make it super smooth. Nice medium body that doesnít get in the way yet gives it enough heft. Decent stuff--could drink a lot of this and not realize it.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a beige ring of foam. Mild aroma of peaty malts, earthy notes, light caramel/toffee and a touch of dark fruits. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a touch of smoky bitterness. Average body, a little thin. OK.
