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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

On tap. Pours a deep amber brown with a fluffy, creamy beige head. Nose is dark caramel and earthy, grassy hops, with a slight peated note. Taste is tingly bitter with some stronger sweetness appearing underneath there. Palate is bright, lighter, active, and refreshing. Not heavy at all. Nice flavor profile, very easy to drink, and great for pub food. I liked it.

On tap at Detour. Pours a dark amber color with a small head. Aroma and taste is slightly sweet, malty, with a typical scotch ale flavor. Nice drinkable beer.

Pint can. Chocolate, toffee, slight smoke, tannins, toast. A quick nip of hops on the front end, and a multi-layered malt experience follows, tumbling in waves over the palate. About a two out of five on the sweetness scale, and as it seems like there are a lot of sweet beers out there this year, I wouldn’t say this one is overly sweet. Enjoyed it very much.

Live review poured into my pint glass. A- Body is a transparent mahogany color that pours with a 2-3 finger soapy white head. Head subsides quickly to 1/2 finger-but has great retention from there. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. Bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top. S-Nose is moderate in strength and offers a lot of caramel malt as well as some chocolate an toffee. T-Flavor is much lighter than the smell and offers a decent earthy hop profile in addition to a mild caramel and chocolate malt presence. What lingers on the palate is some earthy hop flavor as well as a hint of caramel, toffee, and chocolate malt. P- Medium to high tingly carbonation and a very light, thin body. O- This is a decent, above average Scottish Ale. Its very light, sessionable and drinkable. Also seems to be an interesting, somewhat unique brew. Its nice to sample someone else’s locals occasionally and I’d like to trade for more local growlers. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 04-01-2010 18:02:23
