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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.

Bottle courtesy of DosBeerigos--thanks, Phil! Served in a pilsner glass. Pours a moderately hazy red-copper color with a half-finger white head that sticks around for a bit and exhibits some small white bubbles. A bit of lacing afterward. The nose brings forward a bit of bready malt plus a touch of toast. Some mild earthy hops there as well. The taste has a very pour showing--slight infection has set in and there is a bit of an acetic presence. Very unfortunate. Other than that, there’s a mild cherry-skin presence along with some breadiness in the background. Slight bitterness in the finish, but the coming vinegar takes over. Another infected bottle; quite a shame. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-05-2011

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

Aurelius (4677) - 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.

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

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.

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.

mansquito (4207) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Total Wine, Chantilly 12oz ($2): Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of hops. Taste is mostly caramel malts. Subdued sweetness is present throughout. No off-notes. This is a simple session and seems to only want to be a simple session. For that, I can’t fault this beer.
