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.

Amber coloured body with no head at all to speak of. Aroma of caramel, toffee, a bit of hops and some malt. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with some hops. Aftertaste is clean with a bit of malt leftover. Overall, decent, but not amazing! I sampled this on ’pseudo-draught’ at the Old Dominion Brew Festival 2004 on 27-June-2004 in Ashburn, Virginia.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Fair enough. Cereal, slightly doughy eurolager aroma with some very light fruit. Nicely bittered, malty, pizza beer. Medium body. Couldn’t see the color, I was drinking it from the bottle. Slight appearance ding for the twistoff cap. There were a couple of off notes in the finish - kind of dubbel-y - just a twinge of straw and must, but only occasionally noticable. New Leaf Market.

12oz twist-off bottle. Light orange-amber color. Thin white head. Hint of cardboard in the nose. Finishes with a bit of fruit, sharp bitterness. Lots of crispness. Flavor of toast, sweet malt, and woody tannins. A good summer Lager.

In the aroma there are grassy and citrus hops as well as sweet malts. The appearance is hazy gold with a touch of amber. The flavor is like the aroma with a gentle hoppy finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a rather unremarkable beer still I got more than I was expecting.

Tea and hay aroma. Cloudy golden, medium yellow head. Malty tea flavor. Good balance. A very flavorful lager.

Overall Impression: Decent lager, nothing overly exciting, but it is pretty drinkable...

Butters (3863) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
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

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2009
12 oz. Clear deep topaz with a sticky, lasting head. Aromas of spicy flower and sweet grain. Initial flavor of butterscotch dries slowly into an almost crisp finish that has notes of toasted nuts and spicy-sweet grain. Near-medium body is smooth and finishes fairly dry.

Bottle from giant sterling. Pours orange with a half an inch of white foam. A bit citrusy on the nose. Pretty smooth on the tongue with a slight hint of malt sweetness on the finish. It’s not lager but it could be worse.
