I am no expert at all but if it is brown it will fall under the Kawari mono group and it will be a Chagoi.
If scales are present on the back and along the lateral lines it will be a Doitsu

Or does it look like this?

Difficult to say without a photo.

Maybe something like this? The brown colour can vary.

Doitsu
A term that developed from the word for German/Deutsch. The Koi has scales on along its dorsal fin. A leather Koi is a Doitsu with no scales; a mirror Koi is one that has scales along its dorsal fin AND along its lateral line and around the mouth.

Herewith a photo of one of my ginrin Chagoi's and ginrin Ochiba's. Ochiba is a cross between Chagoi and Saragoi.

It looks like a very slim Chagoi but it is purely a bad photo, but you can see the gold colour.
