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.

Hopmaestro (1281) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2015
Aroma is malty and dark bready with some dark dried fruits for good measure. Taste is the same as the aroma really, but with some sweet and moist forest sensations adding to my already existing aversion against the style. So... it is as good as it can get for a brown ale. It’s nicely crafted though.

sawbuck (633) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Nice aroma of bitter chocolate, some fresh bread and a hint of raisin. Nice brown color, with a tan head. Sweet malt up front. Chocolate, toasted almond, and some dark fruit initially. Bitterness is brief but cuts sweetness nicely. Somewhat watery mouth feel on the finish. Well balanced. Not bad.

Clear, brown color. Thin , off-white head. Aroma of bread and caramel malt . Same notes in taste , moderate malty sweetness . Seems like nothing special, but everything is in perfect proportion in the taste. I really enjoyed it.
