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.

Nice balance of malt and bitter. Nicely drinkable. Tad of roast, chocolate malts, cocoa. Some nuts, and smooth - malts and some hops

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Not a bad brew, but everything about it is mild - the soft malty aroma, the sweet caramel & coffee taste, the gently bitter finish. Good looking reddish-brown color. This would be a good session ale or a nice with a meal.

WOW! This one just left me wanting more and more. Slight sweetness and ale texture, leaving a long lasting pleasant taste in your mouth! MORE please.

Been a fan of this brew since I first tried it a few years back. A good beer to drink by itself with it’s undertones of coffee and slightly burnt carmel. A nice round flavor. Also I prefer their brewery tour over the mass market Red Hook one on the other side of town. Wish this and other Smuttynose brews were easier to find on the west coast when I go see friends.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
[on tap at Sunset Grill and Tap] Clear brown with a nice, elevated ring of fine bubbles that lasted. Floral hop aroma with some pleasant coffee and malt. Toffee-caramel flavour with some notes of coffee and gentle hops. Very clean finish, but a little weak. Light to medium body--not as thin as expected. Very little carbonation. I liked this beer and would definitely have it agian.

Sweet, spicy aroma. Pours a perfect medium brown with zero lacing and just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is sweet, slightly hoppy with hints of caramel and grain. Palate comes on smooth and unfolds on the tongue with an excellent finish. I love this ale.

Contrary to what you might believe, it is not recommended that you give this beer to your dog. Your dog drinks out of the toilet. In other words, give him Anheuser World Select. Seriously, this is a pretty damn good beer, deep brown like the name implies, with a great balance of malty ale flavor in the mouth and fragrant hoppiness in the finish.

BeerandBlues2 (11725) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Pours rich nut brown with mahogany hues throughout and a tiny tan head that mostly dissipates, but does leave enough for some thin lacing. Aroma is a complex mixture of roasted caramel malts with a hay/straw blend and a bit of yeast on the nose. Some faint hops tickle your nose gently as well. Wonderful caramel malt flavor and roasted nuts mix initially then leave you with a creamy hop finish. Palate is creamy, clean and smooth. Once again, many thanks to dirtymike for this brew.
