COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Brown Dog has been cited as a classic example of the “American Brown Ale” style of beer. Compared to a typical English Brown Ale, Old Brown Dog is fuller-bodied and more strongly hopped.
Old Brown Dog has been around for many years. It was first brewed in 1988 at the Northampton Brewery. In 1989 it won a silver medal in its category (American Brown Ale) at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. It has since been retired from competition but enjoys love and respect from people all over the world.

Medium brown, earthy (read dirt-like) aroma and some nuttiness, light bodied , caramel and nuts in the flavor , some hops. Drinkable and decent

Bottle. Brown with a reddish tint. Aroma has malt, little bit of fruit (pear and berry), hint of chocolate and bread. Flavor is fairly sweet, very heavy brown bread feel, the stickiness in the aftertaste bothers me a little. Smooth and easy drinking, medium body, sweeter than most brown ales I'd say.

CapFlu (4959) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
(Draught) Thin, white head and a copper body. Nice lacing down the glass. Faint malt nose. Fruity, berry and malt. Average.

The beer was quite enjoyable. Slightly sweet, nutty brown ale that looked good and was mild and easy to drink.

Holdwine (1135) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Very nice brown ale. Deep dark brownish red pour with the requisite tan head. Truly an easy drinking ale with great malt flavor. Wow.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Pours is a deep mahogany, with a large tan head that diminishes to a small ring, light lacing. Aroma is dark maltiness (nutty, earthy, woody), backed up with a solid amount of hops. Flavor has coffee, caramel, and a great hoppy finish. Medium body, very enjoyabl and easy drinking.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Brownish red colored, light tan head. Definitely hoppier than other browns but also pretty sweet. Nice balance between the two. Fuller bodied than most browns. A nice effort.

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2003
brown with redish tints, very sweet smelling. Malty and sweet with just enough hops that bite your tongue a little. Lots of carmelized sugar tastes.

Nice beer to drink at this time of the year, autumn. Malty and sweet. Brown colored. Its a well balanced hoppy ale.

joet (2463) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 5, 2003
More straight up pale ale then either an American Brown or the more lush British brown -- like a rounder maltier Sierra. Delicious well balanced granola malts with an equally big measure of hops with some hints of pine and parsley.
