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.

[Cask at GBBF 2005] A hazy brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy - and so is the flavor, while the mouthfeel is somewhat sticky. Hmm - I wonder if the carbonation in the bottled version would make this better than casked?

Leighton (20814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009
Shared a bottle with my special lady last night. This is a great brown ale. Pours a rich brown with a strong white head. Nose of lightly roasted malts, caramel and some chocolate. Taste is sweet, like brown sugar and caramel with a hefty dose of maltiness. Some mild hop character balances the mix nicely. Medium bodied and smooth, this beer finishes smoothly with a rich, creamy aftertaste.
