UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 This is a good beer to have when you just want a beer, I wouldnít recommend it with spicy food. This beer is a typical brown ale, nothing particularly special about it other than I think itís a little better than most of the other brown ales you can get in this area. This beer is almost always present in my beer cellar or fridge.

Old Brown Dog was a good American Brown Ale to enjoy during a lazy summer afternoon at the Jersey Shore. Hoppier than what Iím used to in a brown ale. Nice toasted aroma, and caramel flavor.

Bottle 12oz - Pours light brown with a beautiful creamy tan head that laces well as you drink it. Deliciously aromas of caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, and molasses fill the air above this one. Fantastic flavors of malts, caramel, milk chocolate, and vanilla blend to a nutty slightly bitter finish from the well balanced hops. On the palate this is a little thicker, smoother, and creamier than others of this style that Iíve tried. This is a fine nut brown and one I could certainly drink again.

Aroma of my Auntís awesome pea and matzah-ball soup. Awesome. I recognized the smell right away and was shocked when I realized what it was and how un-beerlike that was. Doesnít mean itís not good :) I poured quite vigourlessly and developed virtually no head. Unfortunately I was tasting this right out of the fridge as my mom was drinking it, so I couldnít really pinpoint many flavors. Still, though, flavor didnít seem too complex. Palate was a typical medium. Iíll perhaps rerate flavor when I can drink this a bit warmer.
