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…

teorn88 (3551) - 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.

visionthing (3312) - 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.

Douberd (2995) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
(Magic Rock Rapture) From cask at Borefts ’14 Amber red colour on the body, thick tall creamy head, with good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma has light manure, a bit floral too. Taste is floral, with light citrus, maybe some thyme or rosemary, good bitterness, definitely more complex than the aroma. Low carbonation, thin body. Okay beer, quite drinkable actually.
