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.

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at a local pub, poured into a pint glass. A: tan amber color, nice small off white head with good retention that reduces to a lacing cap. S: mild nuttiness. Slight caramel T: sweet on the tounge, slight not of floral hop and nut. A nice example of what a brown should be. M: medium bodied, slightly chalky.

Solid brown ale. Slightly better than Sweet Josie. Pours a somewhat hazy brown with reddish hues and decent tan head. Definitely malty and biscuity on the front with some hops in the finish. Decent mouthfeel- medium to heavy and somewhat slick. Good for the style. Not overly carbonated- key to a successful brown so one is not reminded of cola. Solid beer for a style that I tend to avoid.

Bork (321) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Mild, refreshing and easy to down, despite relatively high abv. A gentle malt aroma and smooth texture make this pleasant. Not high on flavors or aromas.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 I really enjoy this beer. Very drinkable. I like the slightly higher ABV. Flavor isn't very complex. A smooth brown ale.
