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…

harrisoni (13793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2011
Handpull at Craft Beer Co. Very drinkable red ale that, and i cant believe iam saying this, is just too hoppy. Good hoppy lovely hoppy but hops dominate the malts too much

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a minimal-sized beige head. Citrusy, piney nose with caramel in the back. Pleasant, but a tad too subtle I think. That goes for the flavor too, with its biscuity maltyness, citrus peel and pine cones, and a decent bitterness. It feels a bit dead on the palate, although it has a decent carbonation. Full body and bitter finish. A decent and easy drinkable beer, but it failed to impress me. 120505

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2013
Draught, 4.6%. Fruity aroma, mild and roasted. Cloudy brown colour. Stable off-white head. The flavour is roasted and nicely hoppy. Clean and rough hoppiness. Not a symphony of flavour, but unpretentious and well-made.

thewolf (11188) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Mybrewerytap.
Pours fairly muddy amber with a lovely, staying, cream-coloured, cremy head. 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. Certainly not Magic Rock’s best effort, but still good.
