COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Those of you at East Nashville Beer Fest may have had a chance to try Rompo, our very sessionable Red Rye. We love this beer not just because you’ll love your third and fourth beer as much as you’re first, but also because we love the flavor. While the beer definitely celebrates it caramel malt character, the true hero of this one is the rye which cuts through the bitterness of the hops without overpowering them. Enjoy!

edgallow (2345) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malt, grain and spice. Taste is the malt, fruit and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3541) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Draft at community pie but this time in a room temperature glass. Pours light brown with a half inch of khaki foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Not a lot on the nose. Not a lot on the tongue either. If I really focus I can get a bit of rye but it’s really faint. Finishes clean. Very boring.

shadey (1911) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at brewery. Bright amber pour with minimal head. The rye is subtle here and while it is noticeable in the flavor, it doesn’t dominate like some rye beers. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

jbrana (482) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2013
This is a nice, crisp, refreshing beer that has a pretty heavy malt backdrop which is brought to live with the addition of rye and citrusy / piney hops. I feel as though this is another example of Jackalope improving. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a nice amber color with a whit frothy head on top. The rye and hops are mixed well where neither seems to overpower the other. Great time at the brewery and lots of fun in the tasting room.

jstraw (1937) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Red-amber with modest, white head / Mild nose of citrus and caramel / Light body, high carbonation, thin, with weak body and finish / Simple, mild flavors of sour malt, citrus, and pine, with rye not discernable / Poor.

terrus (6) - Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2012 does not count
Pours a coppery brown with a minimum white head. Aroma has a slight spice smell with a hint of hops. Taste was much sweeter then expected but not overpowering and the hops is well balanced to add flavor but not drown out the taste of caramel. A good beer but doesn’t quite fit with its rye title.

Suttree (5259) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Sampled at Knoxville Brewfest. Reddish copper, nice white head. Clean crisp aroma, with some yeasty, malty notes. Flavor is rye, toast, caramel. Pretty tasty.

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Grainy red pour, thick body. This rye ale has got it all; rye and malt working in harmony, light hops, and a smooth (surprising) palate.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Slightly cloudy red orange color with thin white lacing. Light aroma with nice hints of caramel and spice. Not a huge amount of rye presence but pulls through as a good red ale. Not a huge candied feel.
