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…

DruncanVeasey (8012) - 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.

downender (7861) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2012
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.

Svesse (7775) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2011
(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.

gunnar (7756) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle from MyBrewerytap.com. Pours hazy dark amber with a huge creany off-white head. Aroma of lovely fruity and grassy hops. Taste is fresh and crisp fruity and resiny hops, pinecones and grass, very dry and tasty. Lingering strong mint, a good one.

77ships (7682) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Sampled cask @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Murky brown, tanned bubbles. Smell is nicer than taste, rich malt, caramel, sugar. Taste is a bit muddled & weak, oily, malt, sugar, caramel, leaves, tad watery, mocha. Lower carbonation, okay for sure but could be better.

lusikka (7681) - 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.
