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.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2013
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.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 2, 2011
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.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Draft at Union Jack on Broad Ripple in Indianapolis. The table went through a few pitchers of this while we watched some World Cup games and had a hangover lunch. Pours a cloudy brown with a finger-thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toast, brown sugar, nuts, and chocolate. The flavor follows suit perfectly. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. So toasty and malty, with a nice sweet creaminess that makes it very smooth. Goes down so easily, and certainly a sessionable Scottish ale. Nice beer.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. 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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 12/17/10. Can shared by fata2683 - thanks, Keith! Very light caramel aroma. The flavor is slight sweet caramel with a hint of roast and something that reminds me of plastic. Re-rate 1/18/12. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head. Light caramel aroma with a bit of metal. Sweet caramel flavor with bits of bread and toast and a touch of lingering roast. Nice. Up 0.2

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2011
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.

Can shared by Bob - thanks! Clear amber pour with a small foamy head. Caramel sweetness and smoked peat. Smooth but lighter palate. Pretty good.
