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.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep brown/reddish color with a quickly dissipating head. Sweet and slightly citrusy aroma. Initial taste is a rush of malt mixed with sweet and a slight roasted finish. A bit thin.

Crit (3762) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Comments Hazy brown,fast fading tan head.Aroma of malt is lightly fruity.Flavor is mostly sweet malt.I get none of the hops everyone else is referring to. Seems rather flat to me. Much too sweet and undercarbonated to drink much. Thanks to Cap Flu!!

hershiser2 (1859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Paid $1.09 for a 12-oz single. Brown with mahogany highlights, small head... It has that nut brown smell... nothing original, but still nice. Plain, nut brown taste-- but it has an extra hint of sweetness in there that many don't have. A decent beer- nothing risky here.

Deep red, off-white head. Nose is sweetly malty. Flavor has caramel, nice smoky backbone to it, very malty and sweet.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Draft. Sweet malt taste to go along with a light bitter finish. Dried fruits (raisin?), sweet and sticky.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2004
(Bottled September 2003)Murky brownish color falls somewhere between iced tea and old penny. Wispy beige head. Nose of sugary caramel, with a strange sour-acrid quality (smells like a brand new balloon or raquetball), and lightly flower/grape soda. Tangy sour and sweet flavor reminds me of milk that's started to turn. Also tastes of multigrain bread, with a faint back-of-throat bitterness. Somewhat cloying sour berry aftertaste- remember when you would touch a 9 volt battery to your tongue as a kid? It tastes like that. Thin body. Pretty nasty overall.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2004
Draught at Sunset Bar and Grill, Boston, MA.</br> Brown/amber coloured body. Complex multi selection of malts which are smooth and succulent on the palate, showing the full range of malt flavours.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Medium Brown with a foamy beige head. Smell is dark malts, cocoa and hazelnuts. The rich, almost decadent flavor has notes of bitter chocolate, almonds, hazelnuts toffee and vanilla, with just enough hop bite to give the beer some oomph.
