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.
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.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 17, 2005
Brewtopia ’05. Poured a dark orange brown. Aroma was slight with some molasses in it. Taste was molasses, brown sugar and almost maple syrup with a decent body to hold up and balance the sweetness so it wasn’t overpowering.

Sample at hayseed. Pours brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid caramel on the nose. A bit sweet on the tongue normally but it does cut the spice of this jambalaya nicely. Finished clean. Solid beer though I like my brown ales to be nuttier ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong caramel malt in the nose with slight hoppy fruit at the end. Pours dark golden with brief foam. Medium body and slightly slippery mouthfeel. Caramel dominates the taste with a little biscuit and slight hoppiness. Moderately sweet finish. A good, mild brown ale.

Fad. Fantastisk at får to amerikanske ratings i Seoul på en tilfældig pub i Itaewon. Bedste kvarter i Seoul for øl by far. Man kan tydeligt mærke den amerikanske indflydelse. Brun lys let brændt og sødlig. Fin øl.

Aroma - roast malt Appearance - the body is mahogany, with a little fine particles. The head is around 1/2" and settles into thin layer of film. Taste - has roasted malt, some mild nuttiness, and a little sweetness overall. Palate - medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a slight tannic finish.

ClubGonzo (5358) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper-hued brown body with a tiny off-white head. Nose is almond essence, nuts, cola nut and hints of brown bread, caramel and deep malts. Taste is caramel, burnt sugar, almond essence and hints of chocolate, cola nut and grains. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but it tastes kinda stale somehow.
