COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rugged yet smooth, Kodiak Brown Ale balances caramel and roasted malts with enticing Northwest hops. Perle and Willamette hops accent without overpowering this American brown ale’s intrepid maltiness. The result is uniquely delicious.

Inspired by the adventurous spirit readily found in Alaska, Kodiak Brown Ale invites you to take the road less traveled. Kodiak has remained one of our most popular beers since we first fired up the brew kettle in 1995, proving that Alaskans are not afraid of the dark.

Pair Kodiak Brown Ale with comfort foods—macaroni and cheese, lasagna, burritos; pub grub—burgers, nachos, deep-fried bites—and just about anything prepared on the grill. You can also just kick back and enjoy a tall cool one when you want to relax and enjoy LiFe.

Brown pour with a big tan, 2 finger head. Aroma of a farm field full of grain. Hints of cereal and biscuit. Medium mouth. Taste is full of barley and bread. A little cereal too. Aftertaste is slightly sweet followed by the lingering grain. Pretty easy drinking.

Oscbert (1154) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
~Rich malty aroma of chocolate bread, caramel, toffee, pecan pie. ~Pours a dark brown with reddish tent, small lasting creamy light tan head. ~Roast in flavor with, bread and caramel, light cocoa, earthy, woody hop character. ~Medium full bodied, medium low CO2, slight astringency, lingering roast bitter finish. ~The aroma is great! Some of the great of aroma is lost in the flavor though. The woody flavor lasts too long and kind of ruins some of the malty nuances that I like. Probably go great with food. Smoked ribs, pulled pork.

on tap @ Humpy’s / Anchorage AK --- Clear dark amber color, beige head cover, solid curtain of lace. Taste is full-bodied semi-sweet malt that moves through the swallow, gathering fizz and light hops along the way to a smooth lingering finish. Not at all overpowering, but still recommended.
