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.

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

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2011
Can… Clear, light copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, nutty bouquet – toffee, cashews, pistachios, mild biscuit and cocoa with a hint of nickel. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is a totally quaffable merger of Scotch ale and English brown ale – lightly sweet praline and caramel with kisses of chocolate and roasted tree nuts. Short, crisp, refreshing finish. Kudos to StFun for providing a very nice example of my favorite style of beer!

From the can, dark amber/copper pour, aroma is minor peat with lots of malts, taste is very similar with a little maple. Good, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. No head. Dark brown. Not hoppy or bitter. Not an old chub but a nice change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DenverLogan (773) - 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.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2010 Another great offering by Sun King. Pours a light brown color with lots of amber. Just a hint of a head, and minimal lacing. Aroma is full of malts, toasted nuts, and a hint of warm chai. Flavor is incredibly balanced between the malt and the roasted nuts. Hints of yeast and caramel. Slight candy in the finish. Really good and sessionable.

Tap at Scotty’s Dtown Indy. Pours transparent brownish red with quickly fading white head. Nose is notably strong brown malt and not much else, but very appeasing. Flavor is solid caramel/scotch style ale with faint notes of chocolate and sweet berries. Finish is smooth, slightly carb’d and malty. Very nice offering. The 1-off Java Mac is even better.

Draft at Union Jack on Broad Ripple in Indianapolis. The table went through a few pitchers of this while we watched some World Cup games and had a hangover lunch. Pours a cloudy brown with a finger-thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toast, brown sugar, nuts, and chocolate. The flavor follows suit perfectly. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. So toasty and malty, with a nice sweet creaminess that makes it very smooth. Goes down so easily, and certainly a sessionable Scottish ale. Nice beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Can from a friend. Pours deep brown with a frothy head. The nose is toffy and cocoa, no real hop notes to speak of. On tasting, quite chocolatey, rich and malty overall, Very clean, medium-low carbonation. Light bitterness. Pretty nice overall.
