3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

Pours copper red with well retained creamy head. Big tropical fruit aroma with caramel malt. Tate is big fruity hop wollop with nice caramel toffee backbone. Very very tasty. Can’t help but compare this to 5 am saint. Is it better? Depends which day you get the 5 am saint.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Thanks Craig for sharing this bottle. Had this alongside the High Wire and Cannonball. An orange-red amber ale with a lacy white head. Aromas of pineapple, caramel, toffee and some pepper. Caramel flavour also, quite nutty, some fruits- passionfruit and orange again. A bit yeasty. OK.
