Wee Mac Scottish Ale by Sun King Brewery
4pk for only $10.47
Wee Mac Scottish Ale – a style of beer with a longer boil time in the kettle to caramelize the wort. This gives the beer the malty profile and its copper or darker brown color.
Cooler temps really drive me toward darker beers like stouts, but Scottish ales help me get prepped for stout season as they focus on malt and not hops.
Appearance: Medium amber in color; nice thick 1 1⁄2 inch or so head with some lacing in the glass
Smell: Light hazelnut, malt, alcohol
Taste: Hazelnut, malt, toffee, and some cocoa
Mouth feel: Very smooth and slightly creamy
Overall: This is a mild Scottish ale and very for good for a change of pace which is exactly what I was looking for...I also like the fact that the ABV is only 5%. This is one of the three everyday Sun King brews and my favorite of the three. For anyone curious as to what this style of beer tastes like, Wee Mac is an excellent example of the Scottish Ale and the a great starting point before tackling bolder renditions like Dark Horse’s Scotty karate or Founder’s Dirty Bastard.
