look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served - can poured into Pint Glass

Appearance
Rich brown color with minimal head. Copper color.

Smell
Roasted almonds with hazelnut hint.

Taste
Very rich and malty taste. Can taste the nuts (hazelnut) and hops. Mixed taste between the brown ale and an IPA.

Mouthfeel
Very drinkable. Tastes great and smooth in the mouth. Complex and rich taste throughout the entire process

Overall
A pretty great Brown that also tastes like an APA/IPA. Love the malts and the rich hops as it enters your mouth. The hazelnut smell tops it off.

Served on tap at a bar near InPol.

A: Pour is a copper with red tint color with a nice bone white head that towers over glass and recedes to a manageable 1.5 finger head that maintains and laces.

S: Interesting scents. Toasted malt, some hops and earth tones, sweet molasses.

T: Everything you get in the smell comes forward courageously in the taste. A nice complex flavor that lingers between an APA/IPA and a brown ale. Nice and crisp tastes of hops blend with sweet tastes of caramel and malt.

M: Very drinkable. Its like a hybrid beer that gives you two styles in one. Very easy to drink with good coating and lighter body for a scotAle.

16 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a deep coppery ruby, with a couple fingers of foamy off-white head. This peters out pretty readily, leaving back some thin ringing and a frothy cascade that slides down the sides rather quickly. The aroma smells of caramel, a touch of cocoa and smoky roast, while a bit of underlying green hops help add a flavorful twang to this in the nose.

The taste is similar to the aroma, with sweet toffee, cocoa powder, and green citrus, with a roastiness across the back which hangs a gentle smokiness on the breath after each sip. This finishes dry with a lingering mix of sugars, bitter fruit, and maybe even a smidge of spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and crisp on the tongue with more of a firm creaminess that expands out into the rest of the mouth. This is pretty easy feeling overall.

This was interesting. Almost like a Scotch Ale Lite with the hop component of an American Brown Ale. There wasn’t really anything mind blowing here but it was decently flavored enough with that hop profile adding a good amount of fresh crispness here and this overall drank rather easily thanks to the lower ABV. It’s worth a look.

I'm not too sure what Sun King was attempting to do with this beer. There's really not much to say about it besides maybe that it's a mildly acceptable brown ale. They are worthy of greater beers (recent beers have proven this point) but for some reason Wee Mac is still out there. Your guess is as good as mine.
