I drank this from a can. My first Jackalope brew. Delicious flavors of rye. Lightly sweet with very subtle hops. Just loved it. Will definitely do again. If I could find this on tap, Wow.

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.
