Starr Hills 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.

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.

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear dark orange amber color, thick ivory head, streamers of lace. Bright color, good looking. Aroma of malt. Taste is semi-sweet malt that has mild carbonation on the swallow, and hops that give a sense of unsweetened tea as much as bittering. A satisfying brew, easy to drink, lots of flavor.

chinchill (3220) - South Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2015
12 oz dated purchase before Dec. 2011 and served in a pint glass. Tad of sediment on bottom of bottle added mid-tasting. Pours a nice orange-amber, dark for style, but with only a little off-white head that rather quickly reduces to a ring. Not much in the way of aroma, although both light/medium malt and spicy hops are evident. The flavor too seems at first unremarkable, but there is an extra bit of bitter hops in here, as well as some extra malt. The body is a bit fuller than average. O - This is not a particularly bold or interesting style, and this beer stays too close to the low expectations for a macro-brewery lager excepting the extra spicy and bitter hops. The semi-dry and relatively full mouthfeel also elevate this beer. Still, I found it not flawed, perhaps, but not good or interesting enough to recommend to anyone except fans of this style.

Malty, sweet. A fizzy head, light and crisp, nutty and a bit of bread/cereal. Hints of hops in the finish, but not much.

March madness 2015. The beer is well balanced and is pretty tasty. What is missing for me is a greater grain complexity. The noble hops flavor does not come through.

nimbleprop (6160) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2015
16oz pint at Clydes 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.

JDBaker11058 (1614) - Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Appearance: medium light amber; clear, with a short off-white head. Aroma: light caramel malts, hint of toffee, bit of grass and light fruit. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: very short, with a slight grassy minerality (maybe a hint of metal) lasting the longest. Notes: This would actually be a better Oktoberfest beer than their own Oktoberfest/Marzen ("Festie", its called). Bottle from Total Wine and More, McLean, Virginia.
