Well, looks like Grandmaís gone Nuts. This English Style Brown Ale hits you full upside the head with a nose chock-full of toasted Georgia Pecans followed by a rich, full-bodied finish. Just like Grandmaís pecan pie, this baby will have you coming back for more. So, what are you waiting for? Pop the top and give old Grandma a kiss!

Can from Whole Foods in Little Rock, Arkansas. Clear, copper body. A ton of effervescence. White bubbly collar. Breads, malls, nuts in the aroma. Lots of pecan character. Mildly sweet with a light, but not thin, body. Pecan character is stronger in the flavor than in the aroma. Over for me in as advertised. Fun.

A nice brown ale. A little nutty, some caramel. Not too roasted. It had a heavier body, good carbonation, a filling beer.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 Tap. Pours clear hazel, large creamy beige head, great lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasty, nutty, hints of smoke, toffee. Flavor is medium sweet, light acidity, light bitterness, loads of cocoa. Medium body. Ah, failed to notice that "The Dudes" is officially my 200th California brewery rated. Cool!

Pours a chestnut brown color with an extremely crazy out of control khaki head. Iím not sure how I should consider the head. I guess Iíll consider the look I get after it finally settles and I get a good look at it. More on that later.

Aroma is of pecans. Unfortunately, Iím picking up too much pecan shells, and, Iím hoping thatís not in the taste. Thereís a very different taste between pecan meat, and pecan shells. Besides that Iím picking up some caramel, and some good malts. It also smells sweet.

Interesting taste. Yep, it has the basic brown ale body and character. But I do taste pecans, and maybe a little brown sugar. Maybe some vanilla. Thereís some bittersweeetness at the end, itís odd. There might be a metallic taste in there.

Mouthfeel is actually pretty good. Itís pretty drinkable. It has a slight pecan sourness. Youíll know what Iím talking about. It does lean toward a full bodied taste.

Overall, this is pretty good. I think they do a good job of joining brown ale and pecans. Itís better than I expected. This is worth a try. I just dinged it a point for appearance because it pours really weird.
