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.

This guy is one of my favorites, and not just because I happen to have an Old Brown Dog. It's a very relaxing, flavorful beer that you can sit on the porch and watch a nice summer sunset.

Nice beer, received as Christmas gift from my in-laws. A decent brown/scotch ale.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is caramel, honey, nuts, and toast. The sweetness blends pretty nicely with the slight, roast bitterness. This is a good brown.

Nothing really special with this one. I am finding the balance off a bit, but besides that the flavor is OK. A little rusty at first and bitter (not in the best way), but at the end the hops settles in and has a decent bitter-sweet flavor mixed in with the caramel malts. Might also be a little honey in there too. Color is about medium, not dark brown like some other brown ales. I may prefer nut browns over this though, or a Dutch Brown. There are better ones out there in this style.

Aroma: A hint of nuts, malty, some hop flavor, some sweet aroma and a bit of toastiness. Appearance: Brown, a bit cloudy, the head was about an inch high, tan color, receded quickly. Taste: Malt forward, a hint of hops, but they don't dominate. Some sweet taste, caramel, a bit of toffee. Palate: smooth, medium carbonation, some sweetness in the finish. Overall: Nice beer, good representation of american brown ale.

Pour deep mahogany with one finger, dense head. Aroma is caramel and brown sugar. Taste is caramel, roast and a hint of clove. Finish is smooth malt. A very drinkable beer when looking to be sociable.

Taste sweetish, caramel malts, lightly fruity, somewhat hoppy. Faint but pleasant, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Nothing wrong with it, tastes just too thin.

Pours brown with a tan head with an aroma of earthy caramel malt. Tastes of sweet caramel malt with a bread and mildly bitter hop finish. It’s medium to light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation. It’s a bit nutty.

Well... It Is Brown. I was looking for more malt expression, and they talk of additional hippiness. Really? It Is brown. Don't know how old. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
