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.

Hanoi (801) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Can. Nose is fruity, red berry, orange, modern tropical hops. Taste is malt, orange, leading to grapefruit, lime, the body is malty, biscuit, toast, hazelnut. Mouthfeel is full. Reminiscent of black IPA in the use of modern hops alongside a different body. It?s alright but I can?t get excited by amber ales, however kindly I’m asked to try it...

jjsint (2178) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Keg tap at the Cambridge Blue. Reddish amber, clear with a small off-white head. Resin, toffee, forest floor, a touch of banana in the aroma. Bittersweet taste turning quickly to a sharp bitter, with more resinous hop on the finish. Perfect tickly carbonation. A veritable godsend to an amberphile like me.

Nonshaugen (398) - 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...

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.
