Growler of Rompo pours a dark orange with a small 1-finger off-tan head. Reduces quickly leaving a minimal ring of lace.

The nose is heavy on the rye malt- showing a more pure breadiness with fruity tones of buttery apples, white raisin, faint cinnamon, light brown sugar, plum. The parallels to rye whiskey are awesome in this.

The medium bodied palate is caramelly sweet up front with a mild bitterness that ushers in the rye maltiness- drying and spicy with lots of fruity tones. Ends really juicy and mouthwatering with a clipped dryness and some lingering bitterness in the center of the tongue.

A great effort and another example that heightens my appreciation of rye beers. The grain's dry, fruity and spicy character makes for a wonderful sessionable brew with loads of flavor and an interesting mouthfeel.

-can to spiegelau glass. canned 11.17.15. consumed 02.08.16.

A: Cardinal red with orange-ish highlights show a good clarity with a steady pace of effervesce within. Cream, peanut shell toned head is 0.5 inches high and stays moderately. Thin, whispy eyelash lacing.

S: Spicy pine, dark caramel-raisin malt with some apple skin of moderate strength and short stay.

T: Sweet caramel and apple malt. A bit of spicy pine, fresh cypress and a touch of lemon hops. Spicy pine-malt finish.

M: crisp, nice maltiness, sticky caramel.

O: A decent spiciness, caramel malting and average drinker. 3.25 overall says it best. thanks to paul.
