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.

Thanks to Josh for the tall boy! Wee Mac = Tyrion Lannister? Scottish brown seems about right, as this brew isnít quite your typical Scottish and certainly not your typical brown. Vigorous pour required careful monitoring to avoid counter spillage. Murky light copper pour, head fades very quickly to leave the thinnest scrim. Nose is hugely fruity, almost to the exclusion of anything else, and whatís there is more bright and floral than is customary for the style. Full mouthfeel, feels more carbonated than it ends up looking. Taste is too sweet, even some vanilla syrup creeping in there along with the bright fruit adjuncts. And the whole fades a bit quickly in the finish. Weird.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear nutty reddish brown. Smells like peat and fig with an odd soapy taste of peat and some earthy malts. A little too light bodied, sadly. Left me wanting lots more.

Can at Buttersí 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.

tap at the brewery - Pours light amber-brown with an off-white head. It was a very distinct caramel malt aroma. The flavor is caramel malt and some mild, earthy hops. Itís light bodied and overall a little milder than Iíd like in a Scottish ale. Decent.

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.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown with reddish tinges to it and a moderate tan head that quickly disappears. Nose is quite malt with some toasty and almost nutty tones. Taste isnít really sweet at all, but has some nice nuttiness to it. OK.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Can from a friend. Pours deep brown with a frothy head. The nose is toffy and cocoa, no real hop notes to speak of. On tasting, quite chocolatey, rich and malty overall, Very clean, medium-low carbonation. Light bitterness. Pretty nice overall.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Deep mahogany hue. Inviting nose. Malt forward with rich elements of toast, peat and toffee. Wholesomely sweet, but not cloying. Hops are earthy and herbal, delicate and balancing. Not overly exciting, but tasty and well made.

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.
