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.

Yellowish pour. White head. Grainy aroma but not all bad. Some faint hops too. Flavor is grainy, malty and slightly hoppy.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Bottle. Poured a murky orange in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of sweet malts with a light citrus hop scent. It tasted bitter and rather malty at first and finished with a nice biter-sweet hoppy flavor that stuck around on the taste buds for and average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with and creamy yet dry texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a great lager with a nice mix of maltiness and bitterness.

(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

(most recently, @ hat factory, RVA) light coppery bronze hue. fizzy. white to off-white head. decent maltiness, but not much complexity. then again, itís not exactly going for complexity, either. some nice, crispy bready/cracker taste with enough hops to balance but not much more. way more presence here than any of the typical lagers out there, but not the depth of character of some of the better micros or imports.

Bottle: pours a slightly reddish color with a very light tan head. Aroma is malty sweetness.. Itís flavor is super sweet, like it should be. Not my favorite style, but itís very good. Not the best Vienna lager.

Bottle. Light, almost clear pour. Good flavor of light malt. Hops noticeable in finish. Easy consumption.

Had this on a warm summer evening outside at a bar on a deck. Had nice color to it, a deep amber color. Poured a lite colored head with some lacing. to it. It was tough to tell the clarity of the beer, since it was outside they gave it too me in a plastic cup, but from what I could tell I think the clarity would have been good. Smelled fairly balanced not too hoppy. It tasted pretty good. I again not overly hoppy, could tast some roasted malts to it. Went down pretty smooth, was very drinkable, Iíd get it again, or try more from this brewery if I had the opportunity.

Ok beer I think it is too hoppy and not dark enough in color to be considered a lager. Taste and looks I would call it a light hop pale ale but a tasty one at that.

12 oz bottle. Poured brownish - characteristic amber/malty sweetness and some light hop finish. Ok.
