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.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2016
355 ml bottle. Cloudy brown with orange highlights and a sloppy off-white head that disappears almost completely. Caramel, orange and flowers in the nose. Rich malty taste at first beefed up by a crisp orange zest bitterness. Clean finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Straight ahead brown ale but well done all the same.

Smuttynose Old Brown Dog is ok but not a style standout. Clear brown pour with a fizzy head that disappears too quickly. Aroma is sweet and a bit hoppy. Taste is sweet but flat and kind of thin. Old Brown Dog is drinkable but nothing special.

Holmen1 (5573) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2016
Flaske fra helsekosten p Kvadd, delt med Ovesen mens vrteren koker i Grainfather: brunlig rav med kort, storboblet skum. Urter og malt i aroma, i tillegg litt innslag av kjeks, rde br og mrke fltekarameller i smaken. Slank, med en trr og behagelig lett bitterhet i avslutningen - glir sorglst innenfor snippen.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.01.15. Muddy brown. Small, pale brown head. Not much lacing. Some aroma of brittle, dark caramel and dark malt. Similar taste, with hints of unfermented wort. Low bitterness, but high drinkakability.

Sweet Chocolate and nut flavor on the aroma. Hop aroma is low. Appearance is a hazy brown with an off white head. Flavor has notes of toasted bread with a medium bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium level of carbonation. Overall, it's a good tasting sessionable beer. Personally, I would prefer more hop flavor and aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
