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.

Humbug. Tasted like an old brown dog.

radiomgb (2227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2002
Dark amber, almost brown colour, malty-nutty-fruity aroma, tasted almost like burnt caramel, candy like. Very enjoyable.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2002
Dark brown w/ orangish hue. Moderately hoppy, floral aroma w/ malt background. Full bodied & somewhat resiny. Nice caramel/molasses malt character w/ notes of nuts & chocolate. Dry, assertive hoppy finish, though balance toward sweetness.

shorlin (636) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 4, 2002
Deep red-rust colour. Aroma has nice round matly tones. (whatever that means). Certainly mice malty flavour, but it really isn’t distinguished enough. It is also not quite right as a session beer, since it is quite quaffable enough either. So, I liked it, but overall it doesn’t really fill a place in my world.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2002
Dark reddish brown appearance. Fresh citrusy hops, sweet malt, raisins and a touch of smoke in the nose. Smooth, somewhat thick feeling. Good maltiness, somewhat fruity. Some hops in the finish and just a touch too sweet for my tastes, could stand for a few more hops in the finish. Very nice brown.

pours orangy brown. small carbo. deep malt and slightly alcoholic aroma. sweet chocolatey, toffee-ish malt up front. balancing tart bitterness.

GregClow (2858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2002
Nice ruby-brown colour. Average aroma, with a bit of caramel. More caramel in the flavour, with a bit of fruitiness and chocolate, and a slightly bitter coffeeish finish. Went very well alongside a plate of sharp cheese, pickles and crusty bread.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 15, 2002
Certainly smells brown to me. I am not sure why this dog is on the label but I am sure that does not makes me want drink this beer more than before ... Color bloody brown doggy? Sorry it’s Sunday and this is my last rating for tonight (is it?). Ok I shall keep t short. Drinkable, soft and smooth. Fans of strong/max stuff will not be exited about this one, otherwise is ok, not bad, not overly complex either.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2002
Toffee, caramel aroma, clear ruby, small toffee head. Roasted malts and nutty flavour, slighly bitter after taste. Pleasant mouthfeel. Fair.
