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…

Red color. Medium-sized off-white to khaki head. Little bit of lacing after it quickly falls. Huge hoppy, citrusy aroma. Little bit of malt. Slight watered down malt flavor. A little hop flavor and bitterness. Decent.

Vignale (1979) - 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.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Arrived in the glass with a coat of reddy amber with a steadily fading white head. The nose revealed plenty of grassy hop in addition to notes of citrus/orange, a little spice and sweet malts. Similar themes continued on into the flavour with some fruity notes and a drying bitter finish. Decent enough but not the best offering from this stable.

evergreen0199 (1929) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. An amber/red coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Fruity, caramel aroma. Tastes of caramel, malty, fruity. Rather thin for my liking.

teorn88 (1915) - London, 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.
