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.

@ 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.

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.

Can shared by Bob, thanks. Brown color and thin palate. Light malt, and the lightest caramel in the flavor. There is not much here.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 donít taste hazelnut or chocolate. For the first time in a long while I enjoyed a beer when it was colder rather them warmer. This isnít badÖ. Just boring.

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.
