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.

12oz bottle, thanks to Andrew. To a spanish-speaker, would this be pronounced "homo lager"? Fun. Bottled 7/5/12. Clear golden color. Minimal white head. Sweet flavor, kinda zesty. Corn, hay, bread, pepper aroma. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Definitely a pretty alright lager. Some citrus. Good, but I liked the Starr Hill Pilsner much better. Andrew loves this, he bought a whole 12.

Bottle at the release of Flaming Fury. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Lemon and grain on the nose. Watery with more grainy lemon flavors. Finishes with a dry bitterness.

phaleslu (9305) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2010
12 oz. bottle from the Flying Saucer in Nashville; there were a few other brews Iíd 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.

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2008
12oz bottle pours filtered tawny brown. Nose of apple juice malt, faint bread crust, some toast and light spices. Flavor is much the same, overall very plain and simple but at the very least it lacks any glaring defects, so itís drinkable without being memorable. Clean, malty, a little red apple and toast in the finish, but quite simple. Simple can be good, simple can be downright delicious, but in this case simple is just simple.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet toffee malts and herbal hops. Not that good.

drowland (7876) - 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.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2005
Another Starr Hill brew where part (or all?) of the output comes from Old Dominion. Deep gold colour. Mild malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Slightly smoky. Thereís a touch of hay, but the hops are very muted. OK, but it didnít really get my mojo working. On tap at the Starr Hill Brewery.

jredmond (7402) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle split with Tony. Pours a slightly hazy amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is corn and malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin bodied with offensive notes of malt. German malts.

solidfunk (7351) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2015
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.

nimbleprop (7345) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2015
16oz pint at Clydeís in Chinatown pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is fine, some yeast, some bread, a little root veg, some mild soap, not much else. Flavor has a rusty penny thing happening, some muddle citrus, but mostly just yeast and bread. Merciful, clean finish.
