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…

Keg at The Southern. Pours clear reddish-brown with a chunky white head. Herbal hops aromas, and the lemon end of citrus too. Some caramel. Sweetness first on the tongue, but then lots of hop bitterness. A touch too fizzy for me, but a very nice beer overall.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
@ The Vintage, Leith. Not Edinburgh, yes there is a difference. Pours amber/red a touch hazy. Malts up front in fact its almost all malty but the hops appear in a long, long finish. A very drinkable beer.

Tide (1756) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Draught at bar. Deep amber color, white head. Bitter taste with hops, grapefruit, caramel, pine and a bit of resin. Bitter finish with grapefruit and resin. Very nice amber ale, although a bit overly dominated by hops.

fantti (687) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Hana @ Leskinen. Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on melko niukka jättäen pienen reunuksen. Haju on mukavan monipuolinen: pihkaa, trooppista hedelmää, puumaisuutta, havua. Taustalla on lisäksi vielä karamellia ja marjatoffeeta. Maussa taas on vahvana pihkaa ja havua, lievempänä hedelmää ja karamellista makeutta. Ei ihan niin monipuolinen, mutta hyvä. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläisen katkera ja todella hyvä prosentteihin (4,6) nähden sekä suht raikas, vaikka katkero on lopussa hieman raskas. Prosentteihin nähden loistava olut, jossa on hyvä katkero ja runko, pihkaisuus on vahvimpana sekä hajussa että maussa. Hedelmää on hajussa melko paljon, mutta maussa taas ei niinkäään. Hieno olut.

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ Haand Festival 2013. Amber body, medium off-white head. Aroma is catty herbal notes, citric peel, hints of earthy leaves and wet grass. Taste is cat pee, citric peel, lime, straw, hints of peaches and honey melon. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Pleasant enough, but not much more.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Lätt kropp men mycket smak. Torr, sträv, , mycket grape, tallskott med en lite fenolisk rejäl beska som ligger kvar länge i munnen. Riktigt trevlig.

northropfrye (2194) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
On tap at Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Kind of like an IPA. Red, but with a lot of nice bitter hops. Enjoyable.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2013
Draught, 4.6%. Fruity aroma, mild and roasted. Cloudy brown colour. Stable off-white head. The flavour is roasted and nicely hoppy. Clean and rough hoppiness. Not a symphony of flavour, but unpretentious and well-made.
