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 isn’t 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 what’s 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.

Pint can courtesy of StFun – Thanks big J! Muddy brown with a one finger tan head that faded fast. The nose is caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is caramel, dark fruits and light cocoa. Medium bodied. Not great, but happy to try it – thanks again Josh!

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Can thanks to Josh! Pours a clear deep red with a bit of brown and a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and hay with a bit of must and toffee. Flavor begins with bread and toffee but has a bit of an odd musty finish. Pretty average.

Brown, smooth and not as much malt as I expected. Light caramel and sweetness too.

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 isn’t really sweet at all, but has some nice nuttiness to it. OK.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a beige ring of foam. Mild aroma of peaty malts, earthy notes, light caramel/toffee and a touch of dark fruits. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a touch of smoky bitterness. Average body, a little thin. OK.
