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.

Troobie99's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Troobie99 (60) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2002
An average brown that's designed to be approachable. It has a bit of sweetness, but is too thin for my tastes. I would think in Alaska you'd want something with a heavier palate.

Unde (1180) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Brownish copper colour, smallish head on top left quite quickly. Aroma has caramel malts, some roasted malts and piney hop notes. Taste has slightly roasted and caramel malts with pine and grassy hops. Medium body and high carbonation.

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2017
On tap pour brown, hazy, light khaki head. Decent amount of toasted malt and caramel malt. Slight sweetness. Light citrus. Medium body.

0.355l can. Definitely a brown one in color, little cloudy and a tall almost fluffy but somewhat fading beige head that leaves minimal of lacings. Smells mild chocolaty. Tones of nuts, dark berries and some darker types of malts. Nice and not too extreme aroma. It has a somewhat high carbonation level wrapped in a mild oily texture. Tastes quite good. Again it’s mild chocolaty with a nice dark caramel sweetness. The high carbonation is kinda disturbing the flavors a tad perhaps. There’s hints of truffles, marzipan and red berries in the finish. All in all its definitely a little dull, but drinks nice enough. 24.06.2015

Shared with Wim at my home. Brown colored beer with small off-white head and no carbonation visible. Coffee malted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is malty roasted hopped.

tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Tap @ Pump House, Fairbanks. Dark auburn with thin head. Smells lightly sweet, almost chocolatey. Taste has some sourdough and a nice light bitter finish. It is a little cold, probably even better warmer.

Wim (4226) - Weelde, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2016

From a 12 oz can. Pours a clear cola brown with an ecru head. Sweet malty nose. Flavors of caramel and toast. Smooth finish. Tasty.

78samh (289) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2015
12 oz can pours a murky brown with a tan foamy head. Aroma is coffee and bread. Taste is coffee and chocolate with hints of caramel, toast and yeast. Smooth finish. All around great brown ale.

Oscbert (1335) - Lincoln, 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.
