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.

355ml bottle at home. Pours clear brown with little to no head, doesn’t last. Aromas of light chocolate, fruity hops, dark sugar. Taste is more hop-bitter than an English brown ale, but nice, and with a rounded sweet finish. Texture a little thin, but nice bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. Deep cherry red opaque with bits under a creamy beige foam. Sweet alluring aroma suggesting Ribena stirred with a Curly Wurly, tinned peaches, chocolate orange et al. That on the palate too with an added dust of roast; blackcurrant, a hint of batter, full cask-like condition. Sweet, balanced and rather good.

Oginme (42) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle: pours clear medium red-brown with nice white head. Aroma is caramel with hint of floral, herbal scent. Taste is slightly sweet and bready with taste of caramel, raisins, and toffee. Ends clean with a nice matching hop spiciness and slight citrus notes. medium bodied, moderate carbonation, easy drinking.

harrymel (1481) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Best by: xx/27/13 (uncertain month) Pours brown with cocoa hues and a solid sheet of fine tan foam. Smells nice and bready with some herbal hops and a little bit of graham with just a touch of tea. Flavor is malt, nuts, toasted bread, burnt coffee (really light) some solid bits of leather. medium on full bodied with light carb and a wet finish. Decent for the style, not available in my area, so I’d rather drink Avery’s Ellie’s instead.

BoostIPA (1214) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Classic clear brown pour, minimal head. Aromas of toffee, roasted walnuts. Taste is bready, malty. Pretty focused. Finish is semi-sweet with a dose of dog shit. Pretty good.

Good american brown. The malts are roasty and the overall taste has an enjoyable linger.
