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.

Smuttynose beers are terrific. This brown lives up to the previous 3 in that its great in its style and I really like their flavors and full bodied rich aroma. Without mentioning the great taste of a great micro.

shadey (2055) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Pour is a clear brown. The head is slight with tight bubbles, that reduces quickly to a thin white film. The aroma is an enticing nutty, and caramel. Smells great. The flavor is more nutty with crisp carbonation. Its almost rich tasting. I like this ale.

Draft at VT Brewers Fest - Dark maber in color with a quickly fading head. Aroma ia malty with a minor hop undertone. Flavor is slightly sweet with roasted malt and some citrusy hops. Finish is not too long with a mix of malty sweetness and piney hop bitterness.

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.

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).
