Signed up for the first time just to rate this beer. Out of a growler. Like my beer, but by no means a beer tasting expert. But love this beer for what it is - a smooth, flavorful, but not overpowering brown ale.

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!

Great choice as a second one from Sun King!
Beautiful Amber color and inviting aroma give this brew its character.

Smooth cocoa and caramel aftertaste. Looks beautiful in a pint glass. Very smooth, but still flavorful.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 16 oz. can into a DFH shaped pint glass.
This beer pours a mahogany/copper/ruby color with a generous amount of off white head that slowly recedes into a small amount of lacing.
Very pleasant, although somewhat muted, nose comprised of bready & caramel malts, brown sugar, toffee, and lightly chocolaty. Just the slighted hint of earthy hops.
The flavor is very even for the style, not huge and overbearingly sweet, but not weak or watery either. The malt profile is both bready and sweet; with biscuity malts, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee featured prominantly and honey, chocolate, and just a hint of hazelnut to round it out. The hops are almost an afterthought, just enough to make their presence known, but not enough to distract from the malt profile. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and finishes slightly dry. Very drinkable
All in all this is a really good beer, a little light for the style, but not overly so. Good stuff, I look forward to trying more from Sun King.

Sun King is not the best brewery in the world. They are a fresh, young, up-start brewery and they are injecting a dose of vitality into the Indianapolis craft scene. Of all their brews, the Wee Mac is the finest. I love darker ales, and WM delivers as a brown. It’s taste isn’t the most distinct, but it starts smooth and finishes smooth. It’s an easy, satisfying drink, made even more satisfying by the fact that it is coming from essentially the only functioning craft brewery in Indianapolis. Kudos to Sun King. Keep up the good work!

Good carbonation, no head and a dark cola color. Aroma is toffee and slight coffee. Malt flavor with toffee and slight cola. Clean mouth feel with a slightly sticky aftertaste.

16oz can, purchased somewhere in Zionsville, IN. A nice auburn-brown pour, with a quick fading head in pale chestnut flesh. Aroma comes as a standard English/Scottish brown, nutty, woody and ester infested. Flavors are fine in this vein too. Caramel, toast, mild brown malt. Okay. This is a very drinkable and mildly nuanced brown.
