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…

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.

Red color. Medium-sized off-white to khaki head. Little bit of lacing after it quickly falls. Huge hoppy, citrusy aroma. Little bit of malt. Slight watered down malt flavor. A little hop flavor and bitterness. Decent.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 10/02/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine resin and a touch of caramel. Sweet malt flavours upfront, followed by grapefruit and pineapple and a dry finish with more pine. Enjoyable.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire.

Bottle. Hazy amber with white head. Pine and resin hop aroma. Flavour is much the same with a solid maltiness and some fruit notes. Pretty, pretty good.
