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…

33cl bottle thanks to Chris Mair! Pours light chestnut with an orange hue. There is a nice head but it mostly disappears in the first couple of minutes. The nose has some raisin malt but is mostly pine and grapefruit pith. The taste has more grapefruit and pith with not sweet malt to talk of. The palate has a medium body and texture with a very fresh and zingy finish. Overall, it’s a good beer for the hopheads, but it needs a little more malt sweetness for me, so it is very flavoursome but lacks balance.

Big pine front, light bitter finish. Clear golden color. Good American impression with an English finish as a let-down. (at Craft Beer Co., June 2012)

visionthing (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Hazy amber with an off-white to beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, caramel, pine, tropical fruit, malt and hint of spices. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Finish is bitter, a bit dry and quite citric. Medium body. Well balanced. Lots of flavour and a very good session beer. Refreshing and easy to drink with a long aftertaste with fruit, citrus and a decent bitterness.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2012
From cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen, London. This is a glowing blurry burgundy-red beer with a medium sized off-white head. It has a light malty and fruity aroma. I get tones of caramel , chocolate malts and dried fruits. Quite a nice little aroma. It’s soft on the old CO2, and it feels mildly oily in the mouth. The taste is also malty and caramel-fruity. Some ripe red apple-bitterness in the background blended with a drop of peach. Tasty and quite enjoyable. 22.07.2012

teorn88 (3599) - 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.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2013
Cask at CBC Clapham. Pours clear ruby with a small bubbly beige head. Nose is divine citrus and grapefruit hops, tangy orange and lime, mild biscuit and zesty on the finish. Taste is honey, mandarin, orange and tangerine. Big bright fruit bomb with mild bread as a base. Touch thin mouth feel but very drinkable. Nice stuff
