COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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…

Theydon_Bois (16852) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Tap at William IV (Magic Rock takeover) 10/12/12. Lightly hazed dark amber with reddish hues. Thin off white head that retains well. Great lacing ensues. Pine forward nose, caramel malt, light soap. Taste is big on pine, bitter hops, caramel backbone. Medium bodied with soft fine carbonation leading to a bitter dry finish. Decent.

tiong (6438) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm

Pours dark amber red with a bubbly head. Aroma of malts, hints of caramel, grassy hops and fruits. Taste is malty and sweetish with notes of caramel, grassy hops, pine and citrus. Finish is hoppy and slightly watery. Okay, quite tasty but perhaps a bit light bodied amber ale.

7stern (596) - Bromma, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2012
Draught at Akkurat. Dark copper towards red, small head. Citrus and other fruits in the aroma. Wellbalanced taste, flowery. Good session beer.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a minimal-sized beige head. Citrusy, piney nose with caramel in the back. Pleasant, but a tad too subtle I think. That goes for the flavor too, with its biscuity maltyness, citrus peel and pine cones, and a decent bitterness. It feels a bit dead on the palate, although it has a decent carbonation. Full body and bitter finish. A decent and easy drinkable beer, but it failed to impress me. 120505

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Cask @ Brudenell, Leeds. Ruby red body. Citric orange/grapefruit notes, pine and sweet malts on the nose. Caramel/biscuit notes come to the fore in the taste, providing a solid backbone for the tangy hops. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Great session beer.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
Small glass served from tap at Schouskjelleren. Reddish-orange coloured body. Lasting layer, totally blanketing the glass. Aroma of apricot and pine. Fresh malt-fruity taste including notes of grapefruits, orange, resin with mid-sweet malts benaeth. Rounded bitter ending. Fine session qualities (happy drinking in friendly company with Hege and OleR in Oslo during a Saturday afternoon, 15.09.2012).

bergstaden (2382) - Røros, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2012
Hazy amber with a white head - very strong hoppy aroma with some flowery notes - Very strong hop taste with some flowers and bitterness - Long lingering hop finish - this was nice

teorn88 (6446) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
On cask at Old Fountain. It pours amber with a cream-coloured. Aroma has lovely spiciness, pine, grapefruit, light ashy toasted caramel, some resin and light sweetness. Medium carbonation, good dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has dusty caramel malts, some resin, a tad yeasty, some rhubarb, citrus. Fairly bitter finish with some grainy malts. Overall, nothing special but honest brew.
