COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bear Tooth Ale is an American Brown ale. It is light brown in color with a tan head and slight dry hop haze. More assertively hopped than many browns, its aroma is clean and citrusy with subtle malty sweetness. Its flavor is predominantly hop forward. At the start citrusy hop flavors blend with a dry, malty fullness. Malt flavors dominate the middle while a pleasant hop tingle lingers in the finish.

Draft at Moose’s Tooth. Brown ale? Looks like a pale. Pale amber color with a small head. Aroma has caramel and the slightest hint of nuts. Flavor is meh, malty with mild citrus hops. Watery on the palate. Not good.

On tap at the Moose’s Tooth. Described as a brown ale. For me seemed more like an IPA, but with a bit of caramel maltiness to it. Overall, a very drinkable beer, but hoppier than you would expect from a brown ale.

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Nice roast malt and light hops flavor. Easy drinking Ale. They say spruce in the flavor but this was very subtle.

Malty and hoppy beer with decent flavors. Malt side has elements of toffee, toast, nuts and bread crust. Hop side is sprucy and grassy. Good beer.

Lovely beer with good combination of malt and an almost rye-like spicy character. Strong on the finish, and Centennial hops (my favorite) are noted in the finish and on the nose. Some light malt on the palate as well, perhaps caramel, but the main character is hop driven.

6/19/2009: For the record, Bear Tooth Ale is a wonderful Northwest-style Red IPA. It is definitely not a Brown Ale! Anyways, it has a big, resiny, hopped-up aroma with plenty of caramel and toffee malt also detectable in the nose. Its color is a reddish amber and it has a lasting beige head. The flavor has a chewy caramel maltiness underneath lots and lots of great pine, resiny, earthy, citrus hops. This beer is smooth and medium-bodied. I daresay that it would even consider it to be a contender as a session beer. I would definitely sit around and drink it non-stop all day! It’s a damn tasty brew!

Draught (sample) at The Moose’s Tooth in Anchorage, Alaska. Rating #12 for this beer.

Pours light brown. Light head. Malty but with good hop taste. Citrusy and piney. Light to medium bodied, smooth finish. Similar to their Midtown brown ale but hopped up a lot more.

Pours brown into the glass with minimal white head. Aroma has plenty of piney hops with a hint of toasted grains. Flavor is somewhat roasty with a lot of hop presence that really makes this beer very tasty and enjoyable.
