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.

Pours hazy cream soda brown with little head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste follows with some nice sharpness. Molasses, brown sugar and real depth of flavor. Very mild backend bitterness. Touch of hop only. Excellent brown ale. I could drink a lot of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another favorite I was disappointed to find I hadn’t yet rated. On tap. Clear brown. Fine white head. Nose is roast grain, tied right to the palate. Sweet honey roasted grains, maybe a syrup tease. Perfect early winter fireside slugger. This beer never disappoints.

kaserov (991) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2017 Color marrón aparentemente turbio (translúcido y rojizo si le da la luz) con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de menos de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación a tope (menos presente en boca). Aroma mínimo a malta y avellana (o nuez, según dicen otros; no estoy seguro). Sabor maltoso, a avellana (me recuerda mucho a la Hazelnut de Rogue pero con la avellana menos presente). El sabor es placentero pero se queda un poco a medias, es algo típico para una Brown Ale, aunque me da la impresión de que el estilo no da para mucho más. A su favor he de decir que no creo que esté excesivamente carbonatada, como dicen muchos usuarios.

Too much carbonation. Very malty. Slightly astringent with chocolate and grassy notes. Odd

3.2
ALIBALI (2502) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2016
Vom Fass im STRONGBOWs Kiel. 0,3/4,50€. Mag am offensichtlich nicht mehr ganz frischen Fass liegen, aber in diesem Zustand ist das Tröpfchen nur Mittelmaß. Metallisch rosty im Aroma. Optisch rot, trüb und ebenfalls rosty 😉. Nett. Der Trunk unauffällig karamellig, dezent sweet und nicht sehr hoppy. Wirkt daher tatsächlich ein bisschen britisch. Solide.

3.3
jamaty (2258) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
Marrón caoba, tinte rojizo y de escasa espuma. Aroma poco marcado, malteado. En boca tiene paso facil, buen punto de gas, punzante. Cuerpo moderado. Equilibrada, de predominio dulce malteado en la base y notable contrapunto lupulado, seco, especiado, y ligeramente ácido frutal, de frutas rojas.
