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.

Pretty decent for a brown. Pours a dark robust brown and the taste has a hint of hops. Not too much going on with it

Light brown to be sure with a toast and nut aroma. Bready and light malt sweetness. Just OK.

Past notes. Bottle. Colour...amber-brown with a thin ecru head. Nose...rather malty with notes of biscuit and butterscotch. Palate...fairly frothy with Arrow biscuits up front and caramel notes mid palate. There’s just a titch of hops and then a goodly shot malt syrup before the quick dry finish.

ttoadee (630) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Dark brown pour, off white head. Nose is chocolate malt. More sweet than Bitter. Middle is biscuits, molasses, and coco. Finish is light coffee and dark malt. Went great with a Gouda vintage 5 years.

Pretty good brown, got it in cans and you can definitely tell, perhaps it’s better in a bottle. Still like it though

Slipstream (2004) - USA - JUL 4, 2014
This is a dry brown ale, without a lot of malt flavor. It tastes mostly of brown bread, and there is a dash of floral sweetness in the aroma. Good.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Can:   Low malt and hop example, a little sweet, some very slight toasted malts.   Touch of honey and biscuit as well.   A little bready.   Decent balance, not a hoppy brown.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, albeit it does feel a bit smooth.   A little dry and chalky even.   Malty example if anything.   Decent, but a little boring.

Poured flat, no head, minimal carbonation at Humpy’s Airport outlet. Clear brown, dark but not opaque, Very nutty, very fruity, very sweet. Brown sugar, hazelnut, dates, toast, ripe fruit, more brown sugar. Mellow earthy hops, flavor lingers at the front on the palate. Despite a bad pour, a decent brown and a good pair for the crab cakes.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a smallish tan head on it. Nose is a little nutty and has some nice toasting to it. Taste is drier and nuttier than I would have thought, with just a slight hint at some caramel.
