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.

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.

Draft at CAH downtown. Not as clean as I remembered. Clear yellow gold pour with small off-white head. Weak sweet grainy aroma. Tasted buttery and old. Only okay. I give a higher overall score because of my previous encounters with this beer

Tap. Copper, white head w. nice lacing. Nose is dusty copper malt, a little caramel. Flavor is caramel, a tiny hint of cocoa & solid bitterness. Nice cereal malts in the finish. Reminds me a bit of something Flying Bison would make.

Bottle. A very attractive beer that is strongly carbonated providing a nice head that lasts a long time. Don’t drink this one out of the bottle it tastes pretty bad and with a very strong metallic finish. Its got a bite that hits like a mild pale ale and finishes with a metallic aftertaste. A decent beer, but one I won’t be buying again any time soon.

I liked this beer. Pours a light golden colour with a small off white head. it was a little complex in the mouth, yet very smooth, and nice biscuit malt flavors. Aroma is pleasent, of honey roasted peanuts.
