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…

Hand pulled at the Victoria, Birmingham. Finally got to try this legend. I like and agree with MR’s description of grapefruit and pithy orange. Lovely red hue and beige froth. Easy to drink, but quenching and satisfying. Worth the wait.

jmgreenuk (4231) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2012
Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. The aroma is weak but malty and spicy. The flavour is bitter peppery dry spicy and with sour notes on the palate. Well deserving of its high rating.

Theydon_Bois (8167) - The ’Sham, Surrey, 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 (3723) - 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.

yngwie (13346) - 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
