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.

Dark reddish brown appearance. Fresh citrusy hops, sweet malt, raisins and a touch of smoke in the nose. Smooth, somewhat thick feeling. Good maltiness, somewhat fruity. Some hops in the finish and just a touch too sweet for my tastes, could stand for a few more hops in the finish. Very nice brown.

pours orangy brown. small carbo. deep malt and slightly alcoholic aroma. sweet chocolatey, toffee-ish malt up front. balancing tart bitterness.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2002
Nice ruby-brown colour. Average aroma, with a bit of caramel. More caramel in the flavour, with a bit of fruitiness and chocolate, and a slightly bitter coffeeish finish. Went very well alongside a plate of sharp cheese, pickles and crusty bread.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 15, 2002
Certainly smells brown to me. I am not sure why this dog is on the label but I am sure that does not makes me want drink this beer more than before ... Color bloody brown doggy? Sorry it’s Sunday and this is my last rating for tonight (is it?). Ok I shall keep t short. Drinkable, soft and smooth. Fans of strong/max stuff will not be exited about this one, otherwise is ok, not bad, not overly complex either.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2002
Toffee, caramel aroma, clear ruby, small toffee head. Roasted malts and nutty flavour, slighly bitter after taste. Pleasant mouthfeel. Fair.

ARMed (613) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Disappointed in the overall flavor and complexity of this brew. A very nice appearance, but not as full-bodied and complex as I would have liked.

morty99 (371) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Overall unimpressive. Nice color and body but lacked the rich nuttiness I expect in an English Brown Ale.

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Nutty, malty with hints of fruit (I sensed cherries). Enough hops to make a nice balance. Not as flavorful as others, but they don’t all have to be and still be good.

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2002
A dark ruby red beer with minimal head. Falovours are reminiscent of sweet toffee and biscuits. Its quite "chewy" on the palate. Pleasant.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2002
Dark amber color. Fruity/malty aroma. Carmel malt flavor, somewhat acidic. Pretty thin body. Tastes better after it warms up some.
