COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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

tightslice (888) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Location: Can from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA

Taste: Sweet with a lot of artificial vanilla and fake pecan flavor
Overall: Overwhelmingly artificial and sweet. Drain pour.

Beachmaster (444) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Tall boy into a pint glass. Pours a medium brown with a moderate khaki head. Nose is pralines, and the taste follows. Nice balance between the pecan pie sweetness and the bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent novelty beer.

KUEric (936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2016
The aroma is too candied pecans. Its like a desert smell. The look is nice, deep, dark reddish brown with a small head. The flavor is a bit much on the pecan, a bit much on the mixed bitter-flatness. Just not my cup of beer.

Marheb (4743) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2016
(En fût à Square One Pizza Cafe): Des effluves puissantes de pecan et de céréales grillées qui se transposent assez bien en saveurs. Le corps est mince et aérien, hautement engouffrable.

slowrunner77 (9922) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Decent nutty brown ale - more pecan and caramel than dark roast. Medium bodied, finishing bittersweet. Can.

Huhzubendah (3432) - Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2016
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.

Block (2206) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2016
A nice brown ale. A little nutty, some caramel. Not too roasted. It had a heavier body, good carbonation, a filling beer.

Ferris (12374) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2016
Draft - Caramel and nutty notes. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Creamy caramel and nutty sweet notes. Meh.

Draft. Mahogany beer with a dark cream head. Nutty aroma with malt. Caramel and nutty flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel and light nuttiness lingers.

Nice toasted pecan smell. Taste is nice pecan and malty brown ale notes. Medium body, medium carbonation, and slight foam.
