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.

RABinCO (1365) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pint can into a glass. Deep ruddy, copper pour. Sweet caramel and dark fruit aroma. Taste is woody, cola, dark fruits, vanilla, sugar. Not my favorite style...and this is a good example of all the things I dislike about it.

"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."

This is a great beer - and my gf loves it too! I definately get caramel and toffee in this beer, but it really isn’t sweet. I’m not big on hoppy beers, and the hops/bitterness in this beer really feels balanced with all of the flavors. It looks like an ale, with a nice brown color, and smells a little sweeter than it tastes. Overall - a great beer that I enjoy a lot!

UncleKorm (846) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Can poured a lightly hazy brown hue w/ medium tan fizzy fully diminishing head. Moderate sweet malt aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are marshmallow, caramel, brown sugar and malt. Light to medium bodied, watery mouthfeel and tannin in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (643) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
On tap at St. Elmo. Pours a deep ruby/caramel with a thin, near tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma has soft notes of caramel, bread, and fruity esters. Taste is balanced. Caramel, fruit esters, slight bread. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and creamy in the mouth. Overall very drinkable with caramel and an English yeast taste.

DenverLogan (811) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2014
From a can into an Ommegang chalice. Pours reddish brown with a large light brown head and lace. Aroma of rich malts and earth. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of light malts, minerals, slight hay notes and caramel sweetness. Overall relatively easy drinking yet lacking the roasty, peaty, smoky or darker body I’ve had from other Scottish ales. Grainy, dry finish is to style.

Ratman197 (9952) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2014
16 oz can poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, earthiness and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of toffee, caramel and light earthiness with a crisp lingering toffee finish.

DrSilverworm (6572) - 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.

tony1941 (9) - - JUN 15, 2014 does not count
amber color - very little head - toffee and coffee flavor and aroma easy to drink but the flavor wasn’t there for me
