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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Draft. Sweet malt taste to go along with a light bitter finish. Dried fruits (raisin?), sweet and sticky.

maltdog (617) - Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2004
(Bottled September 2003)Murky brownish color falls somewhere between iced tea and old penny. Wispy beige head. Nose of sugary caramel, with a strange sour-acrid quality (smells like a brand new balloon or raquetball), and lightly flower/grape soda. Tangy sour and sweet flavor reminds me of milk that's started to turn. Also tastes of multigrain bread, with a faint back-of-throat bitterness. Somewhat cloying sour berry aftertaste- remember when you would touch a 9 volt battery to your tongue as a kid? It tastes like that. Thin body. Pretty nasty overall.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2004
Draught at Sunset Bar and Grill, Boston, MA.</br> Brown/amber coloured body. Complex multi selection of malts which are smooth and succulent on the palate, showing the full range of malt flavours.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Red with no head whatsoever. Flat and candy-flavored. Tad spicy. Unimpressed.

Nice full bodied Brown Ale. Chocolate/coffee notes are present. Very Good!!!

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Medium Brown with a foamy beige head. Smell is dark malts, cocoa and hazelnuts. The rich, almost decadent flavor has notes of bitter chocolate, almonds, hazelnuts toffee and vanilla, with just enough hop bite to give the beer some oomph.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Medium brown, earthy (read dirt-like) aroma and some nuttiness, light bodied , caramel and nuts in the flavor , some hops. Drinkable and decent

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Bottle. Brown with a reddish tint. Aroma has malt, little bit of fruit (pear and berry), hint of chocolate and bread. Flavor is fairly sweet, very heavy brown bread feel, the stickiness in the aftertaste bothers me a little. Smooth and easy drinking, medium body, sweeter than most brown ales I'd say.

CapFlu (4500) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
(Draught) Thin, white head and a copper body. Nice lacing down the glass. Faint malt nose. Fruity, berry and malt. Average.

The beer was quite enjoyable. Slightly sweet, nutty brown ale that looked good and was mild and easy to drink.
