Ilkley Rombald

Style Brown and Amber Ale
Country British Beers
ABV 4.6%

A reinvention of an earlier version, the Rombald is Ilkley Brewery's remastered American Amber Ale. Enjoyable aromas of citrus, earthy hops and a bit of spice are evident when taking a whiff whilst the flavours also feature a complex malt character that is complemented by a light hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with a delicate carbonation, the Rombald is a fresh and tasty little giant.

Product Reviews

  • Decent

    Review by Bumblebee

    Nice amber ale at a sessionable ABV. Malty, a slight spiciness, balanced bitterness. (Posted on 08/01/2018)

  • Decent Amber Ale

    Review by Dudes Brews

    Nice deep amber colour with good clarity and holds a decent head, quite an assertive bitterness for an american amber and it has a full malt flavour with a touch of spice that also made me think it might have rye in it (but apparently it doesn't), resiny hop aroma is quite restrained and taste is quite resiny american hops more than fruit. It definitely got better as it warmed up but not quite there for me maybe a touch too bitter and I'd like more pungency and fruitiness from the hops, still worth a try if you enjoy the style.

  • Well Rounded

    Review by Rich

    Very pleasant beer this one.

    Echo some other comments - serve at room temperature.

    Another fine effort from Ilkley! (Posted on 10/08/2017)

  • Strength in flavour

    Review by Good head

    Really foamy and lasting head with an appropriately amber brown colour. Lightly bitter with a good strong taste of spicy hops with a hint of citrus. A really good one. (Posted on 30/11/2016)

    Review by Llamaman

    Tried this one again at room temperature and it was a lot better. It's malty, dry, earthy and quite spicy (I was surprised there is apparently no rye in the malt bill). Punches way above it's ABV in flavour and quite a change from the usual citrus- soaked IPAs.
    Not their finest beer but a worthy addition to their stable. (Posted on 25/10/2016)

    Review by Llamaman

    I'm usually an Ilkley fan, so I was a bit disappointed that I didn't like this more. It wasn't my cup of tea - it had a very malty taste, as you'd expect, but it seemed a bit 'odd' in a way I can't describe. Maybe I over chilled it.
    This brewery's track record deserves I give it another go, so I'll be back... (Posted on 21/07/2016)
