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.

16 oz. draft at the Big E in West Springfield, MA. Dark mohagany pour with an off white head and good lacing. Smell is nut, caramel, roasted malt and hops. Taste is similar, sweet with a touch of hops. A caramel sweetness lingers. Good brown ale, though pretty standard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle good hazy brown color light off white head. Nice smooth balanced taste.......improved as it as it warmed up. Not spectacular but much better with more character than many brown ales.

This is my "cheater" beer - it pairs amazingly well with absolutely anything you might grill. Great balance of malts and hops and a good flavor that doesn’t overwhelm or leave you wishing for more. If there’s a BBQ, cookout, or summer get-together, this is the first thing I reach for.
