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.

Good stuff. A very solid, light Amber lager. Thin pour, with almost no head. Tastes of caramel roast, and has a very light bittery clean finish.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Date: 08/30/08, 12 oz. bottle courtesy of Doboy

Aroma - Straw, grass, faint floral hops

Appearance - Bright, clear orange/gold, medium white head and some decent lace

Flavor - Solid malt base with light caramel and toffee, very subdued and indistinct bitterness is secondary

Palate - Light to medium body, medium carbonation, very slight stickiness

Overall - The typical maltiness of a Vienna, some good flavors, and a good representative of the style.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Compliments of doboy, in presense with DrBayern and Steve. Poured from 12 oz bottle, medium dark amber. Aroma malts and hops. Flavour was of malt goodness, with a tinge of malts towards the end. Somewhat of a typical vienna style beer, enjoyable.

Grabbed a few 12 oz’ers for Buddy Steve, the Braveheart Beer Mister Celticbrew, and the regularly panegyrized Drbayern. Jomo poured a light amber color with a fair head that disipated too quickly. It did lace well though. The aroma was too mild for me, but the hop flavor made up for that, though not over powering or harsh. The maltiness in the taste was very good.

This beer is slightly darker than I expected -- a reddish-orange rather than your typical golden color. Two fingers of thick white head. A bit of a wheaty, vaguely fruity aroma (peach, maybe?) but not much else. Not a bad flavor, though simultaneously metallic-tasting (coppery) and sweet. Nothing special.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2008
THOUGHTS: Nice beer, but lagers aren’t really one of my favorite styles. Even though I never heard of Starr Hill before visiting the brewery and buying five of their beers, they continue to impress me. This isn’t bad just nothing special. It did go down easy though. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light amber with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma was light caramel malt and moderate to heavy flower and grass hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, light to moderately acidic and bitter, and sour with an average to short duration. There was a little caramel malt then lots of grassy hops and then finished sour. The light to medium body was sort of creamy with tingly carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.
