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.

Pour deep mahogany with one finger, dense head. Aroma is caramel and brown sugar. Taste is caramel, roast and a hint of clove. Finish is smooth malt. A very drinkable beer when looking to be sociable.

Taste sweetish, caramel malts, lightly fruity, somewhat hoppy. Faint but pleasant, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Nothing wrong with it, tastes just too thin.

Pours brown with a tan head with an aroma of earthy caramel malt. Tastes of sweet caramel malt with a bread and mildly bitter hop finish. It’s medium to light bodied with moderate to lively carbonation. It’s a bit nutty.

Well... It Is Brown. I was looking for more malt expression, and they talk of additional hippiness. Really? It Is brown. Don't know how old. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
