COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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…

Fin (9214) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at Harbury Beer Festival, Harbury, Warwickshire, 03.09.11 Reddy brown apperance with a little haze. Some perfume on the nose but continuing whiffs suggest plenty of citrus hops, and that is exactly what the mouth experienced. Fresh, zingy, fresh green hops, lovely bitterness. This is superb beer despite the hazy appearance. A8 A3 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2013
Keg at The Southern. Pours clear reddish-brown with a chunky white head. Herbal hops aromas, and the lemon end of citrus too. Some caramel. Sweetness first on the tongue, but then lots of hop bitterness. A touch too fizzy for me, but a very nice beer overall.

Tap @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours clear amber-copper color with a medium-sized head. Mild malts and resin on the nose, hops and subtle grapefruit notes. Orange and malt on the flavor, grassy, faint metallic notes, hops. Harsh bitter palate, not the usual brewer quality.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Draft @ Toer de Gueuze 2015, Tilquin. Ambrée, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est fruité, bien houblonné avec un léger rétro de pin-pelure d’orange et un malt léger. Palais est fleuri, houblonné vert, palais sec presque poussiéreux sur une pointe de levure, agrumes avec une note d’amertume en fin de bouche. Retrouve aussi un tropical agréable des houblons avec un pin persistant.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, 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.
