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.

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 (6154) - 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.

"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."

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice dark amber, brown notes, a bit more orange at the bottom with a spotty offwhite head that dies to a film that clings to the edges. Just a bit hazed, just darker. Aromas are sweet caramel malts, a touch of toast, vanilla, faint cocoa, and bread. Sweeter. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter than expected, caramel and toffee blend with vanilla, grains, a touch of toast, and a sweetness, possibly a touch of dark fruit. A bit thin for the style, the malt is the focus as it should be, but this is just a bit underwhelming in flavor and body for the style. Ok, one of the more dissappointing when compared to style.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with an average mouthfeel. Decent, but not memorable.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Nose of chocolate, caramel, light earthy notes. Moderately sweet and malty nose. Pours brown with a thin non lasting head and no lace. The flavor is chocolatey with caramel sweetness, nutty notes, and a slight bitterness. Moderately sweet and malt forward. Easy to drink but unspectacular.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2011
Another rate from the tallboy can. Toffee and caramel nose with some corn and some light smoky ash. Dark copper-chestnut pour with just the slightest hint of ruby,m and a frothy, rocky beige head. Smooth, tastes lightly sweet with smoke and light ash, has caramel and toffee, with very, very faint bitterness and light mineral water quality. Medium body. Sort of a Continental take on a brown ale, I’m afraid it doesn’t hold up terribly well.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Can shared by another patron at the Smuttynose tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 4/27/12. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, slight peat and alcohol. Malty flavor with caramel character and light hops in the finish. Was told this was a scotch ale and was underwhelmed. When I read that it was scottish, that made more sense. Not bad.

Draft - Sweet malty grains and toffee. Deep brown with a good beige head. Sweet toffee and light molasses. Bit of fruity esters and raisin.
