COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starr Hill’s Jomo Lager is a smooth, multiple-award-winning Light Amber Lager. Fermented with Southern German Lager yeast, its crisp, clean taste, and noticeable hop aroma are effectively balanced with a slight malty sweetness. This is a crossover beer that appeals to the broadest spectrum of brew aficionados.

Either I got caught with an old arse bottle at WF, or this beer just sucks. Still crisp, but lacking any pronounced flavor or aroma. Generic, light sweetness and toast...a little stale. Meh.

Bottle. Color is Amber shade, a bit darker than most lager styles that I know. Head disappeared fast. Caramel and bread notes. Light bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear dark orange amber color, thick ivory head, streamers of lace. Bright color, good looking. Aroma of malt. Taste is semi-sweet malt that has mild carbonation on the swallow, and hops that give a sense of unsweetened tea as much as bittering. A satisfying brew, easy to drink, lots of flavor.

12 oz dated purchase before Dec. 2011 and served in a pint glass. Tad of sediment on bottom of bottle added mid-tasting. Pours a nice orange-amber, dark for style, but with only a little off-white head that rather quickly reduces to a ring. Not much in the way of aroma, although both light/medium malt and spicy hops are evident. The flavor too seems at first unremarkable, but there is an extra bit of bitter hops in here, as well as some ’extra’ malt. The body is a bit fuller than average. O - This is not a particularly bold or interesting style, and this beer stays too close to the low expectations for a macro-brewery lager excepting the extra spicy and bitter hops. The semi-dry and relatively full mouthfeel also elevate this beer. Still, I found it not flawed, perhaps, but not good or interesting enough to recommend to anyone except fans of this style.

Not a lot going on here guys. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Some crispness and a touch of sugar. This ones been in the back of my fridge for a while. Bottle.

Malty, sweet. A fizzy head, light and crisp, nutty and a bit of bread/cereal. Hints of hops in the finish, but not much.

March madness 2015. The beer is well balanced and is pretty tasty. What is missing for me is a greater grain complexity. The noble hops flavor does not come through.
