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 dark colored beer with a good head that lasts. Nice mildly malty and hoppy aroma. Good malty taste with just the right hop presence. Nice finish. Good all round beer.

Sweet and slightly fruity. Good ale with a nice hops bite at the end.

jgb9348 (4816) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Dark brown colour with a very thin head. The smell was pretty subtle, but somewhat hoppy. The taste was a great mix of malt and hops but not too much else to the beer. Medium-bodied and average all around, this beer is decent for the style, but nothing spectacular. Tasted at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

tasty brown ale with hints of nutty goodness. dark amber in color with a thin, cream colored head. mild chocolate nose leads to a malty mouthful of flavor. yummm!

This brown ale was a little too heavily hopped for the style, although it was still very good. It had a nice malty, chewy, nutty taste to it. Come to think of it, this beer might not have been as interesting without the high hop presence. I would definitely try this again.

Ahh, yes! Here's an American Brown Ale that I can enjoy. Surely it's hopped to the hilt, but nevertheless there's a pleasant malty sweet backbone that makes it all go down just so easily. Nuttiness is perhaps this beer's most noticeable feature - in fact, the nuttiness is so obvious, this should be the newbie definition of a "nutty beer" if one can't find a bottle of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. I'm thinking that what I like about this brew is its sweetness. Note re label: the brown dog depicted did not appear sufficiently "old".

Smells malty all the way. Dark amber color, slim white head. Taste is predominately malt, which isnt my favorite. The hops need more representation, or less for the malt. My girlfriend loves this, yet I will definately pass this up in the future.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2003
Thin, but dense creamy off white head. Light mahogany/nutty amber body. Adequate carbonation. Light caramel malt nose with some earthy hops. A nutty bitter finish. the hops come through in the long run. Sweet and well balanced. Pretty standard fare, nothing special, but a solid, drinkable brew. some dryness and cereal grains as well as a hint if milk chocolate sneak in there as well.

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2003
Faint chocolate malt and mild hop aroma. On tap. Unpleasant, somewhat stale and sulphurous aftertaste which spoils a nice bitttering finish. Good ruby brown color. Toasty, lightly sweet with some toffee flavors and then drying out.

Not as good as I had expected. This is one of my favorite styles of beer and I was looking forward to trying it, but now that I have I don't think I'd buy it again. Not terrible - but definitely nothing special.
