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 youll love your third and fourth beer as much as youre 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!

Not sure what the goal is here, but the results arent spectacular. Muddled buttered caramel malts with a funky Euro-yeast undertone, growing sweeter and more off-putting as the pint warms. The rye is more of a feeling than a presence on the palate, leading to a harsh, underhopped finish. Flavors are pronounced, sure, but that doesnt mean I understand what theyre saying.

Decent red, pretty approachable but no stand out power to it. Inoffensive I suppose.

Thanks to decaturstevo for this one. Hazy reddish dark amber body with a tall off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet malt with a peppery rye note. The flavor is mostly sweet malt start to finish.

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

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.
