Well, looks like Grandma’s 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 Grandma’s 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 Total Wine in Huntington Beach, CA. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is either a bit sour or I’m having trouble with pecans. Med body. I think it is a bit sour. Do get chocolate and pecan. Doesn’t finish "right". Can too much nut seem sour? Not super sour, just annoyingly so. For pie I expected more sweet.

Pint can from Marketplace Alehouse and Deli, Doncaster. Clear, dark ruby red. Halo and film of tan head. Soft, dried fruit. Cocoa powder. Caramelised nuts. Taste is cocoa dry. Light, nutty sweetness. Dry, woody palate. Sugary finish, with a light bitter close.

Very dark on the pour. Piney and a somewhat burnt caramel flavor. Malty, nutty flavors with a light sweet roasty aftertaste.

shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2014
Tap at Craftheads. Taste is nutty. What a surprise! But actually, also a fair bit of spiky maltiness. Lingering aftertaste of nuts. Maybe not the most exciting beer I’ve ever had, but it’s nice enough. Little bit of sweetness there. Cola and light bitterness.

Pint sized can. It pours a deep mahogany color with a four finger tan head that sticks around. The aroma is nice with chocolate and roasted malt with a good dose of caramel. Slightly nutty. Pretty intense. The flavor is very nutty and sweet with caramel and toasted malt. It has a mildly roasted finish. Hints of cooked veggies and alcohol make this a bit rough, but not too bad.

Ehhh can, not horrible, but nothing great. Brown simple malt, some what tangie, pecans help. Better than the big can dudes.

Canned from BevMo. Rich and roasty up front. Really good chocolate and coffee characteristics balanced out by a touch of pecan. Pretty solid brown ale.

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Brown chestnut pour with a frothy tan head. Sweet, treacle aroma. Great flavour, nutty syrup malty goodness. Yes, this an alcoholic pecan pie and its delicious. A little sweet but delicious.
