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.

This one was a good recovery beer for me after the Shoals pale ale. Good weak coffee color, thin head, nice middle of the road aroma, malt, hops, and a nuttiness. Similar flavors that are smooth and mild. Not too bitter (this is important to me) easy to drink. A good to share with conversation.

Pretty good. Has a nice chestnut-brown (more like a chocolate lab than a weimrhiner) color. Flavor is slightly sweet with mellow malt and a subtle zest of a wang. However, there is a chalky aftertaste that I found a bit unsettling, but this seems par for the course with brown ales.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Dark red/brown body, with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly nutty and sweet. Flavor becomes more interesting as the beer warms, and is characterized by toasty, sweet malts. Borders on the "twig and berry" tastes common to Scottish Ales. Medium body.

Hoppy, nutty nose, reddish body, small tan head. Sweet malt nicely balanced with hops and nutty flavors.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 19, 2003
Reddish brown color, just like the dog on the bottle. Barely any head, just an odd bubble here and there. Smells of mild hops, apple cider and cinnamon. Taste caught me by surprise: chocolate malt/coffee palate after smelling fruit. Weird. Aftertaste is grapefruit-hoppy, turning watery with hints of alcohol.

Cool label. i don't like dogs much but this works very well. The beer's cool too. brownish color (duh) with virtually no head. Malty aroma that continues deeply in the flavor.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Light brown/orange. Little head, no lace. Nose of malted barley, slight caramel, hint of chocolate and hope. Nice medium body, lots of malted barley character and zingy hops. Dry lasting finish. A decent brown, I had a little too cold I think so it deserves a re-rate one day.

Panzuriel (1378) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2003
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.

jgb9348 (4943) - 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.
