Wee Mac Scottish Style Ale is the first beer I have tried from the Sun King brewery. Sun King is one of a growing number of craft breweries that cans their beers. Pint cans. It pours a lovely brown with a nice malty aroma (although when I opened the can at first I could really smell the yeast). Little head. It has a very nice malty flavor. You tell they don't use alot of hops in this. Well, it even says it on the can. It also says it has a hazelnut/tofee flavor. I don't know if I would say that, but it has a good flavor so that's enough for me. I would buy this again!

Appearance - This is thin brown in color with a mediocre head.

Smell - There are some sugary malts in the nose along with light toast.

Taste - This beer fell apart at the taste. It lacked depth, failed to provide the rich malt promise from the nose, and was overly bitter for the style.

Mouthfeel - Unfortunately this beer was ultra-thin, too thin even for the style, and had little carbonation.

Drinkability - This Sun King effort failed to cut the mustard.

16 oz can. Pours clear ruby amber with a big fizzy off white head that goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet peaty caramel malts with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet peaty caramel malts. The mouthfeel is thin and very watery.

Overall, very thin and watery and bland.

Can (2011)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, dannyfrost!

Dark cherry auburn with a thick light khaki colored head that doesn't leave behind much lace or stick at all down the glass.

I do not like the way this beer smells. There's a lot of old sponge/dishrag aroma, without much of anything else positive left behind. There's a bit of caramel and bread I suppose, but I can't really keep my sniffer in here long enough to discern much positive.

Fortunately, and surprisingly, the beer tastes far better than it smells. The unfortunate old dishrag character is gone, and what's left is sweet caramel, freshly baked bread, and a low level of bitterness. Decent, and above average taste.

Thin to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

An average enough Scottish ale, though very unexciting and an unfortunately terrible aroma.

This beer has a nice clear dark brown appearance in its pint glass.

A light carmely malt aroma floats off the tan creamy two finger head of this beer.

If you were to take a small sip of this beer you would find that it's a very light watery flavor but the longer the beer sits in your mouth you pick up on it's caramel somewhat nutty ale flavors.

The flavor and mouth feel is very mild and drinkable so it goes well with hearty meals.

This is a very clean light tasting beer that would satisfy many from the bud light crowd to the adventurous craft beer drinkers.

Can poured into a FFF tulip

A - Chesnut brown with hints of red. Clean looking and slightly reflective. Small mocha colored head that went down to a thin layer of foam quickly

S - Smoked malt. Definitely had a smokey peat presence. There are also hints of orange peel as well as caramel malt

T - Lots of caramel malty sweetness and actually a little too sweet for my taste Initally. There is none if the smoke that you pick up in the nose. There is a slight hop presence on the finish that gives it a light orange peel that lingers on.

MF - Heavily carbonated and a bit too heavily for me with a slight syrupiness to it

O - Decent Scottish ale from Sun King. I wish it had more of the smokiness that I smelled in the nose and it wasn't so sweet.

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a crystal clear slightly dense brown body with a light tan head that soon fades to a spotty film. There is a gentle carbonation that trails up the glass.

S- The soft clean aroma has hints of woody brown malt.

T- The clean flavor has hints of dry brown malt and field corn with a grainy after taste that lingers.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that covers the gentle flavor that it there. No alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer is very light in flavor and character with the field corn flavor in the aftertaste being the strongest flavor. Not much there. Although the beer being described on the can sounds delicious.

Purchased at the brewery.

16oz. Can poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a ruby tinted amber with great clarity. Medium head on the pour with only a bit of retention but decent lacing.

S: Great Scottish aroma. Malty but not too sweet. A touch of almost wheat aroma. Somewhat dry.

T/M: Great maltiness, smooth and not too sweet. Great Scottish flavor and nice yeast. Maybe the slightest hint of hops? Body is medium with smooth carbonation.

D: Very drinkable. A fantastic example of the style. Probably about 60, while Robert The Bruce is about an 80 with some hops... Very different from each other but this one is probably better. Impressive.
