COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Brown Dog has been cited as a classic example of the ďAmerican Brown AleĒ 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.

one of the best browns i have had in quite some time. drinks beautifully on tap, and still has quite some flavor straight out of the bottle. great flavor with tons of aroma.

This has got to be the best American Brown ale I have had. Excellent balance with slight roasted nut flavors, body is excellent with a deep ruby/brown color.

WOW! This one just left me wanting more and more. Slight sweetness and ale texture, leaving a long lasting pleasant taste in your mouth! MORE please.

Just enough subtle hops to keep this brown from being too sweet, which bugs me about other browns. Nice balanced beer, probably my favorite brown ale. Next time Iím in Portland Iím going to make a point to hit up this brewery!

Pours copper brown with light haze and a stubborn, full head of foam. Lace coats the glass. Nose is sweet toasted malt, toffee, nutty with a touch of chocolate. Has some herbal hops in back, lightly fruity that give a touch of earth. Taste is rich malt and lightly sweet. Velvety smooth and buttery biscuit with subtle, herbal dark fruits. Hops show up mid palate with some bitter, fade quickly and the malt opens up with some roast and coffee. Thereís a malt dryness and a slight alcohol dryness thatís stately yet devil may care. Aftertaste is lightly sweet and bready. This is a very original brown ale with a rousing and robust malt character. Fantastic.

Bottle: pours clear medium red-brown with nice white head. Aroma is caramel with hint of floral, herbal scent. Taste is slightly sweet and bready with taste of caramel, raisins, and toffee. Ends clean with a nice matching hop spiciness and slight citrus notes. medium bodied, moderate carbonation, easy drinking.
