COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

It has a colloidal appearance and a think head with mild carbonation. Lovely hoppy beer with a rich orange kick coupled with a hint of astringent pine. A really lovely and balanced beer.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Arrived in the glass with a coat of reddy amber with a steadily fading white head. The nose revealed plenty of grassy hop in addition to notes of citrus/orange, a little spice and sweet malts. Similar themes continued on into the flavour with some fruity notes and a drying bitter finish. Decent enough but not the best offering from this stable.

resin, floral, hay, dough, orange, hazy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, very bitter, light body, creamy, lively, astringent, bitter, short aftertaste. Seems quite heavy initially, but quite uncomplex beer that after a couple of sips starts to become slightly watery

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
The second real ale at the beginning of a session in the Cask Pub and Kitchen, London; Oct 2011: could I find any evidence of those 6 different hops and 5 types of malts used in this brew? The hand pulled pint looked good: more brown than red or amber in colour, the off-white head, deep and full. Healthy looking beer, the head leaving some heavy lacing as the beer level sank (in half inch increments). Those hops gave off a grapefruit, citrusy smell, some pine as well, the malts not really getting a look in on the aroma front. The taste was a better blend of flavours, the malts asserted themselves more in the mouth than in the nose. Still plenty of hop bitterness about, initially and at the end, with the malts taking centre stage during the whole drink. Overall it seemed an easy drinking beer which was well balanced and uncomplicated, even if it had a multitude of different ingredients.

Tomethy (33) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Lots of pine on the nose- not so much citrus. Really intriguing flavours going on of toast, pine and orange, with some pithy grapefruit lingering. 5AM clone, less heavy on Nelson though I would guess, but more reliable than BrewDog from my experience. A good balanced beer.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
More class from Magic Rock. As usual, highly hopped, malty and rich. Citrus and bitter.

Bottle, The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Aromas of soft malts and citrus hops, very little head but enough lacing. Not too hoppy, the malts seem to dominate although it is a well balanced beer. Was expecting a little more from this beer, but overall not bad.

zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. A deep ruby red coloured beer with strong orange marmalade, red fruity and sherbet flavours, hoppiness, red fruits again and a bitter slight woody finish.

33cl, new exclusive English brewery Anno 2011, from The Bottle Shop Canterbury, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly fruity/bitter, easy to drink, balanced, clear, good head, good brew

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2012
330ml bottle. Lively pour, amber brown body, dirty white thin head. Aroma is a combination of simcoe, cascade, grapefruit. Taste is high bitterness, straight from the hops! It largely evades the palate, apart from the odd sharp crisp tingle. Long bitter grapefruit finish. Overall the aroma wins it for me. Not bad at all, but would like a bit of a softer edge on the finish. I drank this standing in my kitchen over a boiling pot of water.
