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!

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

I cant get enough of this beer. My wife likes it more than I do. Deep clear old penny brew. The one minus on this beer is the head disappears pretty quick, therefore thin lacing. But you dont drink the head, now do you? Long lasting aftertaste of malt. I think the rye makes this different and good. Best when on the warm side. Dont drink it frigid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep amber pour with off white head. Aroma is caramel malt and rye. I don’t detect any hops. Flavor is sweet slightly spicy malt and floral notes. Not much bitter but a back flavor of smoke. A touch of toffee. Fizzy. ok drinker

Can. Reddish-amber in color with medium sized head. Aroma is bread, with hints of grass and citrus. Taste is oh so slight fruit with hints of roasted grains and citrus. Well balanced with no bitter finish.

sawbuck (546) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2015
some sweet bread on the nose, hint of cherry, and fresh grains. Nice red amber color with an off white head. Sweet malt up front. Real sweet. Caramel with a hint of some berries. Bitterness cuts in nicely then fades. Rye is hidden in there but not prominent. Rich mouth feel Finish is somewhat balanced. O.k.

Amber colored. A little thin. Malty with piney and citrusy aspect, very slight rye characteristics. Fairly run of the mill.

shrubber85 (9607) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Draft. Light berry and rye malt aroma. Amber with small head. Very sweet strawberry, toffee malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Not quite cloying but pretty sweet.

wedgie9 (2544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 2/3/12 on draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with an average beige head that leaves a decent collar of lace. The nose is some cereal malt with a light hint of resin hops underlying. The flavor is the same with a nutty hint, and a bit of bitterness on the back. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium cereal and lightly bitter hops finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - 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 (2033) - 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.

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
