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.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Medium Brown with a foamy beige head. Smell is dark malts, cocoa and hazelnuts. The rich, almost decadent flavor has notes of bitter chocolate, almonds, hazelnuts toffee and vanilla, with just enough hop bite to give the beer some oomph.

Medium brown, earthy (read dirt-like) aroma and some nuttiness, light bodied , caramel and nuts in the flavor , some hops. Drinkable and decent

Bottle. Brown with a reddish tint. Aroma has malt, little bit of fruit (pear and berry), hint of chocolate and bread. Flavor is fairly sweet, very heavy brown bread feel, the stickiness in the aftertaste bothers me a little. Smooth and easy drinking, medium body, sweeter than most brown ales I'd say.

(Draught) Thin, white head and a copper body. Nice lacing down the glass. Faint malt nose. Fruity, berry and malt. Average.

The beer was quite enjoyable. Slightly sweet, nutty brown ale that looked good and was mild and easy to drink.

Holdwine (1128) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Very nice brown ale. Deep dark brownish red pour with the requisite tan head. Truly an easy drinking ale with great malt flavor. Wow.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Pours is a deep mahogany, with a large tan head that diminishes to a small ring, light lacing. Aroma is dark maltiness (nutty, earthy, woody), backed up with a solid amount of hops. Flavor has coffee, caramel, and a great hoppy finish. Medium body, very enjoyabl and easy drinking.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Brownish red colored, light tan head. Definitely hoppier than other browns but also pretty sweet. Nice balance between the two. Fuller bodied than most browns. A nice effort.

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2003
brown with redish tints, very sweet smelling. Malty and sweet with just enough hops that bite your tongue a little. Lots of carmelized sugar tastes.
