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…

rosenbergh (8014) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at the O'Connell's, Tampere, Finland. Clear dark red amber colour with a creamy and foamy off-white head. The aroma is mild with hops, mild bitterness, dry wood and nutty malt. The flavour is much stronger with piney and mild grapefruity hops, mild bitterness, nutty and woody dryness, malt and some paper. Served ice cold. Very low carbonation. I was expecting a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire.

motelpogo (7173) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 2, 2013
on tap at mikkeller and friends stefansgade. sure enough amber with a steady head; aroma of pine and caramel; simple enough rendition of the style with some dried grass, white grape and a modestly bitter finish

lusikka (6872) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a deep amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of really strong tangy hops, orange peel and lemon zest. Again, flavour of strong hops, astrigent, gooseberries, biscuity malts, caramel and orange peel. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a rough, strong bitter finish. 4,6% ABV greatness.

(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 19 July 2011) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with grapefruit, red fruit and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of red fruit, hints of grapefruit and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, fairly dry, with a generous bitterness. Quite nice.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 10/02/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine resin and a touch of caramel. Sweet malt flavours upfront, followed by grapefruit and pineapple and a dry finish with more pine. Enjoyable.

Medium beige head. Hazy opaque reddish amber body. Catty minty aroma with resiny citric notes. Dry-bitter resiny wooden taste with fruity citric notes. Mid-bodied. Astringent mouthfeel. Dry wooden grapefruit aftertaste with spicy resiny notes. Long finish lingers. Nice, but a bit harsh. (0.15l sample, Haand Beer 2012.)
