COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starr Hillís 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 just shakes my beliefs. I thought I loved lagers, but I donít particularly like this one. It is just a bit too sweet for this style. I should j just quit with this and get Americas lager instead.

Pours a copper-orange, with a medium sized, off-white head. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma, with notes of hops and hay. Flavors is very clean, with caramel and toasted malts. Finishes clean with crisp. Overall, well put together, and one of my favorite "drinking" brews. Nothing to complex, or over done!

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Draft, 4 oz. sample at restaurant. Deep copper with white foamy head. Profuse lacing. Aroma yeasty. Flavor grainy, maybe some corn. Flat taste, I donít know how else to put it. I get zero sweetness or hops. Bitter all the way, even the lingering aftertaste. Did not resemble other ratings here, so maybe the keg had been poorly cared for. May try again later. RERATE 4/28/2010 I donít know what I had before, but it was not this. Same in appearance. Aroma of caramel malt and light spicy hops. Taste of caramel malt nicely balanced by spicy/earthy hops. Medium body, light carbonation, sweet finish. Overall a good go-to beer, and would complement a variety of culinary dishes. Glad I tried this again.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours brilliantly clear orange-amber with a big, dense off-white head that leaves lace all the way down the glass. Aroma is bready, malty with some toast character and noble hops. Flavor is a nice toasty-malty character with a counterpoint of sharp noble hops to balance it out. Finish is toasty malt and bread crusts, with some pleasant hop background. Body is on the low side of medium. A little hoppy for a Vienna, but a real nice beer with lots of Vienna toastiness.

I thought this was pretty good. Very clean with a good malty taste. There was a little bitterness at the end, but it actually was tasty. It has an imperfectness that many lagers donít have. Its very hard to explain, but these guys got it right. I am usually turned off by "lagers" but this one is one that i would love to keep especially during the summer.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Golden amber color with a fair amount of head. Malty aroma with a slight hint of spicy hops. A little biscuitiness in the flavor and slight malty sweetnes. Otherwise it is a pretty clean. Nice dry crisp finish with just enough bitterness to balance it out. Not a bad lager.

xs2500 (180) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours golden amber color with think white head. No real high notes here. Fairly carbonated and stale hops are the main points here. Not terrible, but just another run of the mill brew
