Wow, after reading other peoples ratings for this I am surprised. This beer was hand delivered fresh from Alaska, and it kicks ass. The most solid Brown Ale I have ever tried. A healthy dose of roasted malt makes this a full bodied brown ale. I love this stuff. Hands down my favorite Brown to date.

Afraid I wasn't overly impressed with this one (other than the label and the appearance!). Nice dark brown-amber color, with a thin, fine head and some lace. Nose gave off some malt notes, but I also picked up a metallic smell. Decent mouthfeel, overall. Flavor was average; some bitter roasty malt, a hint of hops at the end, and the metallic flavor to boot. Needs more ooomph!

This is a good brown ale. Had it from bottle and brewery tap. Only downside of the beer is the level of sweetness. Most brown ales these days are not on the dry side and this one is now exception. Kodiak has a distinct malt characteristic compared to some of the other local brown ales which sets it apart. Pretty good.
