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.

Nickls (1847) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Poured with a fairly generous finger of creamy white head; pretty solid retention and some lacing; lightly hazy light orange-rust color. Lightly malty; nutty; bit of yeastiness. Maltiness shows up first; a little earthy; pretty clean and basic. Mediumish MF; a little carbonation sneaks in but would have expected some more interesting feel to it; just kinda slid by without much notice. Pretty good as it tasted solid and was refreshing enough. Overall, not a bad brew at all and I could see this as a macro-drinking friend converter

Rustyham (1724) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Aroma is very buttery, flavor is dry and a bit like paper. there are noticeable hops, more so in the palate than the flavor. It’s dry, slightly caramelly but more on the pale malt side, and the bitterness is very English. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

roder60 (1284) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours a clear amber color with medium fizzy offwhite head. Aroma is sweet caramel grass with slight lemonzest. Flavor is light, hay lemon with a dryer grassy finish. Overall very smooth and refreshing but nothing special.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2010
12 oz. bottle from the Flying Saucer in Nashville; there were a few other brews I’d rather have tried, but this crosses Virginia off my map. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, cereal, fruity notes. Flavor follows suit, with nuts, caramel malts, some fruits, and cardboard. Just a bit of hops detectable. Light-medium bodied, with a dry and quick finish. Moderate carbonation. Easily sessionable beer, and sure beats a macro lager for a night of binge drinking with friends.

This beer is a little too sweet for my palate, not as much as the Love but almost. I feel their beers go heavy on the candied malt and have not alot of depth. Blah.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Experienced on tap in a large hexagonal pub glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a very mild off-white head that quickly becomes only a memory. The nose shows a character that makes the beer seem more like an east coast Amber Ale than a Vienna lager; although I suppose there isn’t a world of difference between the two styles. Fairly subtle notes of medium to medium-high crystal malt. The palate does indeed carry the malt-forward character of a Vienna lager. German malt notes greet the palate, followed by a mild bitterness, and a clean slightly malty finish. Overall, the beer is not poorly made, but lacks any really differentiating character. Average.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Draft. Pours a light amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavor are light sweet malt and mildly floral hops with a touch of sourness. Somewhat creamy palate.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Soft amber with a tall, fizzy white head. Aroma is toasted malts, grassy hops, straw, and grains. Taste is toasted malt, light lemon, yeast notes, grassy hops, straw and biscuit. Body is light-medium with a moderate, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more toasted malt, sweet malt, hint of caramel, grassy hops, and straw. Not too bad.

drowland (6037) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2010
On tap (2010) in a lager glass. The pour is pale brown with a 2-finger white head. The aroma is all corn taco shells and the flavor is similar but with plenty of buttery diacetyl. The dry hop presence comes out in the exhale.
