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.

Brown, not too dark. Mild aroma of malt and earthiness. Very basic ale, nothing too exciting here. Wouldn’t pick it up again.

Very very average and hard to believe the same company makes one of the best porters.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JUN 23, 2004
Kind of bland. Pours brown, obviously, with a small head. Flavor is average hops and malt. A middle of the pack brown ale. Smuttynose does a better job with some of their other brews.

A bit on the dry side with some bittersweet chocolate and earthy flavors; slightly astringent.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2004
Roasted and chocolate malts in the aroma. Clear mahogany brown with tan head that recedes to cover. Raisins, nuts, caramel and chocolate malt sweetness. Coats the mouth. Smooth and easy to drink. Bottle (sampled at Mondial 2004).

hopdog (9327) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Poured a medium reddish-brown with an averaged sized brown head. Sweet, malty, nutty, caramel, and light chocolate smells. Sweet malty/nutty flavors. An OK beer.

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Bottle. Reddish brown, white head. Sweet maltiness with a hint of roast. Nice but sort of simplistic. Mondiale 2T (Tiggmtl).

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
A quite good, hardy, nice toasty and somewhat burnt roasted tasting brown ale. OK+ mouthfeel and content. To top it off, served up by a very weathered and droopy Al Pacino look-alike.

this brown ale was sweet and malty smelling. taste is very malty that goes down pretty easily. a very easy to drink beer that didnt leave a very good impression. doesnt hold a candle to rogue hazel or dfh indian.

DocLock (8160) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2004
I like Smuttynose beers, and this one is a solid example of the style. Nice brown pour, with aroma of malt, nuts, and hops. Tastes malty, with some nuts, sweetness, and hops at the finish. Decent complexity.
