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.

A little cloudy amber brown and quick dissapearing head. Nutty dark malt, a little chocolate and some light bitterness. Tastes a bit grainy, it is also nutty and somewhat sweet with a little balancing bitterness.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2004
This is a truely great beer. Deep nut brown, slight orange tint. Medium tan head. Full sweet roasted maltly aroma, with a little alcohol. This beer really bursts into your mouth with amazing roasted malts, caramel, spice flavors. Great balance. Sweet finish. Very good brown ale. I have yet to try Rogue HazelNut but I think these two would be close in my book.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Bottle - many thanks to slob for the trade! Pours brown - clear dark reddish brown when held to light - with a generous tan head. Tempting aroma - lots of roasty malts and fragrant hops. Flavor is rich, dominated by the roasty sweetness, I also get a bit of dark fruit along with floral and earthy hops that leave a tingly, bitter finish. Light to medium body, crisp, biting carbonation. Very pleasant beer!

SpringsLicker (3502) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Deep brown with a rocky off white head. Caramel and yeast aroma is very rich and inviting. The flavor is nutty sweet and goes over the tongue with a full roundness that really pleases. A very well done brown ale that is worth trying.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2004
This is a great Brown ale. Nice deep amber/ light brown with a long lasting moderate head. Aroma and flavor is nutty and malty with just a hint of hops to balance it out. Smooth finish. Ranks up there with Rogue Hazelnut.
