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.

Nice cherry color, very little head. Yummy smell that fizzles in your nose; taste like butterscotch pudding. Wish I had another.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Deep red brown/mohagony body topped by a medium thick head with good lace. Slightly sweet malty aroma with some butterscotch notes and some hoppiness. Sweet malty flavor with butterscotch accents and a sligthly smokey coffee finish. Smooth, medium to full bodied and slightly oily.

Possibly a bad bottle. Poured flat. Overwelming flavor.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2003
Possibly one of the best brown ales I have had yet. Transparent brown color with a hint of orange, small head. Aroma is hoppier than most browns but there is still the sweet malty backbone aparent. Flavor starts out sweet and nutty with some caramel, middle is malty and the hoppiness comes on in the finish making it refreshing. A good beer.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Lighter brown color. Nice frothy head. Quite a bit of carbonation. Nice nutty aroma. Nutty sweet taste. A good representation of the category.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2003
A very malty and nutty aroma; slight iron presence as well. Great maltiness and well balanced. Very drinkable.

This dark brown malty ale showed average qualities, but with a good finish. The head was thin and not long lasting, however it did have a pleasant but demure aroma. I enjoyed the slightly syrupy/oily flavor and it’s quenching mouthfeel. Not a hoppy present beer either, but in review it simply didn’t stand out like others that prominently poke at the senses.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2002
Coming into this beer with the knowledge that it’s hoppier, I enjoyed it much more. Good balance, slightly toasty and bitter. You can tell this beer "Nice body, sweetheart", and it doesn’t haul off and kick your ass, then sue you for sexual harassment.

Has a dark brown color and a malt smell. Taste is of malt and finishes with a nice bitterness. Overall this was a good brew...

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2002
I thought this was quite nice. A pretty reddish dark brown appearance with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma had some warm brown sugar hints along with some nuttiness. The flavor was full bodied with nuts, brown sugar, malt and caramel.
