Review: Smuttynose Old Brown Dog

A Brown Ale brewed by
Smuttynose Brewing Company

Portsmouth, New Hampshire USA

I hardly have a cross word for Smuttynose but despite recommendations this brown just didn’t do it for me. Perhaps my hopes were too high. Pours a see through brown with a decent head that dissipates quickly. It tasted of caramel and a slight bit like dough. It was malty. It seemed a bit thin though and besides the slight dryness you got on your palate, it left little else behind. I liked it and think it is a great summer brown to drink but I didn’t love it.
