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.

Beer of month club. Pours a clear light brown with quickly disappearing foam head. Nose of some malt and some sweetness - maybe even a drop of cinnamon. Taste is caramel, brown sugar with a malt backbone. On the sweet side, but I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (3892) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Robe qui fait le style. Belle tête vivante qui reste collée. Nez simple de noisettes, de chocolat et de notes grillées. Saveurs de céréales grillées et rôties avec un aspect houblonné terreux. Bouche légère et conçue pour le prêt à boire. Finale modérément amère et moyennement longue. Facile à boire mais vite oubliée.

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 06-02-2015.
In short: smooth malty ale.
Pours some hazy copper with some off white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Malty, biscuits, some honey aromas, some roasty, caramel ones. Medium body, average to soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, caramel, some toffee and roasty flavours. Smooth and enjoyable.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear copper pour with a large frothy off-white head. Only sporadic lace. Decent brown ale. Feels juicier than most, though maybe just a bit too sugary for the style. Dark amber fruit. Queen Anne cherries. Chocolate oranges. Golden raisins. Vanilla celery. Light molasses caramels. Faint hints of leather and cigarettes. Succulent finish. Would make for a good session beer.

Solid brown ale through and through. There’s nothing here that says "I’m the bestest ever," but the flip side, there is nothing wrong with this beer either. Solid.

malvrich (101) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
A: Crystal clear copper/mahogany. Sort of pale for a brown. No visible carbonation. Half finger of quickly dissipating head. Nice lacing though. S: Mild chocalate, caramel or is it toffee? Very slight roastiness. No discernible hop presence in the nose. T: Immediately roasty, chocalatey and surprisingly almost no sweetness. I dislike a lot of sweetness in beer but I miss a little of it in this style. A nice subtle hop tartness on the finish compensates nicely here though. M: Medium body with a good amount of finely beaded carbonation to tingle the tongue. Sticky finish but still pretty clean overall. O: Another good brown ale I’ve come across lately. Comparing this to Duck Rabbit Brown and slightly favoring DR due largely to a lower ABV. Very good overall though and well worth purchasing.

Ruby brown color. Short head. Simply aroma: roasty and a bit fruity. Unpleasant vegetable note. In mouth it is bitter and it has medium carbonation. Watery sensation and very plane mouthfeel.
