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.

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.

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.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated golden brown colored body. The mild aroma was nutty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of nutty and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2015
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 shared by Bob, thanks. Brown color and thin palate. Light malt, and the lightest caramel in the flavor. There is not much here.

Patrickctenchi (4825) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pint can: Pours clear, wet copper-brown. Huge tan head. Scent is woody, cola, nuts...sweet. Taste is rich chocolate malt, cocoa, toffee. This is a dessert in a can. Extremely rich, yet drinks lightly. Wonderful stuff.

16 ounce can, pours a cola color with a creamy off white head. Has the aroma of caramel, burnt toast, malt, and nuts. Flavor matches the aroma, that has medium carbonation, and a malty finish.

obguthr (4597) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Can at Butters’ Slutfest, courtesy of BrewEngineer: Barley, DMS, tea nose. Clear tea colored, thin yellow head. Malt flavor, but weak. Finishes cloying, there must be adjuncts. Meh.

AirForceHops (4518) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2012
16 oz. can from a trade with Sean & Amber. Dark copper in color. Nose is faint caramel and a light fruity type note. Flavor was weak nuts and caramel notes. The body of this brew is real thin. Toffee notes seem stronger when the beer was colder. I don’t taste hazelnut or chocolate. For the first time in a long while I enjoyed a beer when it was colder rather them warmer. This isn’t bad…. Just boring.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Rated on 9-05-2009 at Sun King Brewery. This draft beer pours a small ivory head with a short retention, transparent amber body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt and barely a hint of hops. Ditto for the Taste. The Palate is very smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very easy drinking beer and one of my favorite styles, but unfortunately it came up short of having any type of WOW factor.
