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.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Clear brown and fleeting head. The aroma is at first simple sweet malt, then some hay and a little pine. The flavor is similar with a bit of roast and a little more spice and earth. Palate is of slick and not very lively. Just OK. Easy and not offensive.

kaserov (294) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 30, 2016
Color marrn aparentemente turbio (translcido y rojizo si le da la luz) con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de menos de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retencin). Carbonatacin a tope. Aroma mnimo a malta y avellana (o nuez, segn 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. Pido ms caa en mi paladar. A su favor he de decir que no creo que est excesivamente carbonatada, como dicen muchos usuarios.

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

ALIBALI (978) - 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 Trpfchen nur Mittelma. Metallisch rosty im Aroma. Optisch rot, trb und ebenfalls rosty 😉. Nett. Der Trunk unauffllig karamellig, dezent sweet und nicht sehr hoppy. Wirkt daher tatschlich ein bisschen britisch. Solide.

jamaty (1993) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
Marrn 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 cido frutal, de frutas rojas.

commonmac (1093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Tap poured at Portsmouth Brewpub with Crayola girl. Pint glass. Color is a cola brown with minimal head. Almost looks like it might be flat. Nose has roasted malt and caramel characteristics. Mild. Taste doesnt surprise you bringing the same malty, caramel qualities and feels pretty subdued. Slight malty sweetness. No real hint of bitterness. This feels really average.

Handypaul (459) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown, with a two-finger, creamy, beige, lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of resin and pine. Light to medium body, lightly sour, leaves a sticky sweetness in my mouth, a bit too much carbo, a light caramel taste and a light bitter and sour finish.
