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.

I really wanted to like this more than I did. In fact the flavors are quite good, I just felt this was a bit too watery. Hop and malt flavors are nice with a caramel bite this has. Besides the watery-ness it’s a pretty good brown.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
Cask@GBBF 05’. Not too bad, malty and sweetish to start. Nutty for sure, with touches of caramel. Some aroamtic hops in the finish give it another dimension. Some subtle lychee. A very pleasant brown ale, in the American style.

DanielBrown (4373) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
On tap at GBBF ’05. A bit warm and flat looking by the time I arrived, but even so. Nice enough nutty ale. Some warm choc, with a little bit of sweet hop to finish. Alright.

Draught @ GBBF 2005: Dark amber coloured. Light brown head. Caramel and flowers in the aroma. Flarvour is floral, hoppy and herbal. Has a somewhat dusty bitterness in the end. Is quite fresh. Me like.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense GBBF 2005. A muddy mid brown coloured beer with some caramel and good US hop on the nose. The taste is fruity nutty and hoppy. Definitely a US brown and quite drinkable.

ABUSEDGOAT (2566) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Continuing my dog beer spree. Pours a fairly clear (but not NewCastle clear) brown body with a nice head. Aroma is mostly nutty but also earthy. Flavor is nutty with caramel. Finishes sweet with minimal hop bitterness. Solid.
