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.

chucklemation (1038) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Pours a muddled brown with a very thin white foam head that quickly disappears to nothing. Aroma is toffee and caramel malts. Very light on flavor, with some caramel malts. This is okay.

Quick3Beers (631) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours a brown from a bottle, khaki head. Smells thin somehow, some caramel in the nose. Tastes like soda, overly fizzy, some roastiness, almost smoky meatiness. Too thin and fizzy for my taste. Meh.

Hmmm... this is really not that interesting...

The beer is clear, copper colored with a one finger highe, white head.
The nose isn’t there! Only light nose of caramel malt.
Taste: Caramel malt, dried fruit and butter.
Body: Waterish and light. Light carbonation.

No this is something I only will have one more time (because I’ve got two bottles).

Bottle: Hazy, Brown coloured, small persistent off-White layer; dry nose of toasted malt and herbal hops with a certain fruitiness in the Background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering and drier bitter finish with subdued traces of dark malt and caramel. Good, yes...

Bottle, at the pig, DC. A clear, light brown beer with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, toffee aroma with a bready touch. Some dark dried fruits in the flavor, with toffee, nuts and caramel. It’s medium to full bodied, nicely carbonated. A decent and easy drinkable beer. 150619

mcberko (11193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Nose brings out dark fruits, toasted malt, and toasted bready caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted caramel bready malt, some dark fruits, and toasted nuts. Pretty robust for a brown ale, with a dry toasted finish. Very good.
