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…

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.

Nonshaugen (376) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2016
33 cl, can fermented. Dark reddish amber, loads of sediments, medium tan head, nice lacing, low carbonation. Aroma is nicely hoppy, with grapefruit and citrusy notes. Mouthfeel is bitter and a bit oily. Flavours of red and dark fruits plus some pepper and spice. Not a huge fan of this one...

caesar (6430) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2016
Can @ cafe Derat, large sample. Hazy amber color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, piney and grapefruity hops. Toffee sweetness, caramel fudge, but also hoppy bitterness. Wonderfully balanced and caramel body is big enough to make it complex and very tasty. Awesome brew.

BeardedAvenger (45) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
At home, 13/06/16. Can bought from Winerack, West Byfleet. Sweet but hoppy aroma - enticing if not overly strong. Dark amber in colour, a beige head which soon disappears. Bitter flavour, complemented by an interesting palate: a medium body, with an oily texture and some carbonation coming through. A good drinkable amber ale.

Vighals (2845) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2016
Amberfarvet, en del sedimenter med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter både humle og malt godt. Humle mot granskudd, moden ananas og lett sitrus. Malt mot karamell og noe nøtter. Bitter sitrusskall, blomster og noe nøtter. Middels lang.

ZodiacM (721) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2016
Uit blik geschonken. Mooi amber (!) kleurig bier. Heerlijke geur van hop en grapefruit. Smaken van hop, grapefruit. Ietwat aan de waterige kant, maar nog steeds heel smaakvol. Prima amber ale, red ipa-ish.
