Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 04-28-2002

CoHoHo begins with generous measures of pale two-row and specialty malts along with spirit-boosters like brown sugar and honey. Hefty doses of Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops beautifully balance that outrageous malt bill while juniper berries heighten the festive character of this exuberant beer.

Pours a murky dark crimson-orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite earthy all around, but there are some citrus hop aspects that are noticeable as well.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: ruby red, close to brown; 1 finger tan head that dissipated quickly; light lacing;

S: caramel malt, a bit of honey sweetness; pepper spiciness;

T: it's all caramel malt; no hops at all; at 85 IBUs, there should be hops somewhere, but it's not in the aroma or the taste and there's no bitterness at all;

M: a little syrupy; moderate carbonation;

O: I'm scoring this way below average and, in reading other reviews, I seem to be having an different experience; if I got the hop presence that other reviewers got, I would rate this higher; perhaps the bottle was old, but no date visible; considering how far from Alaska I am, I probably won't try this again; the odds of my getting a fresh bottle are not good;
