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.

Copper pour. Aroma is so mild that I was barely able to smell anything other than a light caramel note. Funny the flavor is much the same. Cant say its offensive, but its not really much of anything.

Can. Caramel malt and hay aroma. Medium brown color with nice head. Sweet chocolate caramel malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice - on the sweet side.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2011
Can… Clear, light copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, nutty bouquet – toffee, cashews, pistachios, mild biscuit and cocoa with a hint of nickel. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is a totally quaffable merger of Scotch ale and English brown ale – lightly sweet praline and caramel with kisses of chocolate and roasted tree nuts. Short, crisp, refreshing finish. Kudos to StFun for providing a very nice example of my favorite style of beer!

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Can @ home. Pours a bit hazy, red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Sweet, toffee, caramel malty, slightly citrusy, sweet creamy aroma. Somewhat cloying, sweet caramel, toffee flavor. Seems a little unbalanced to me. Grassy. Kind of weird.

"I love me some scotch ale when the weather starts to turn, and while this is a nice enough brew, a wee heavy it is not. 5.4%, and you can tell. Slight earthy hops, dark fruit, caramel, and maaaaybe a hint of peat. Pretty good, but I was hoping for a standout."

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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2014
16oz can, from Big Red in Indianapolis. Code on bottom of the can reads 14120. Pours a mostly clear brown amber color. Off-white head is bigger at first, but quickly fizzes away to a thin ring that doesn’t leave much head and just loose bits of lace. Caramel malt and dark fruity aroma. Bit of chocolate. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. Solid scottish ale.

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

On tap @ St. Elmo’s, Indy. Tawny medium amber, creamy off white head. Sweet buttery toffee aroma and flavour, lighter body, nearly no bitterness.

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.
