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…

Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. The aroma is weak but malty and spicy. The flavour is bitter peppery dry spicy and with sour notes on the palate. Well deserving of its high rating.

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Attractive red-brown color, frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and sweet. The taste is certainly bitter, but balanced with a fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel’s pleasingly constructed. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite good. It’s not Magic Rock’s premier offering, but certainly worthy.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
From keg@Haand ØlFestival 2012. Unclear reddish amber body. A finger-thick blond lace on top. Fresh citrus-zesty hop aroma with some leafy and light resnious tones. Taste is surely hop driven. Lemony hop flavor. Notes of resin, green leaves and pineapple. Light and dryish malt body. Medium full. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Drinks good, sessionable.

On tap@Wildeman. Aroma has citrus, some toffee and is slightly herbal. Bit hazy, brown coloured with an off white head. The taste is moderate bitter with citric hops, hint of toffee. Light - medium body and easy drinking.

Beer4000 (4619) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Hazy deep orange body with a small off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit, pine and some oranges. Flavor is sweet, bitter and citric fruity with grapefruit and pine on a caramel malt base. Relatively light bodied, still strong in flavor and a fine bitterness. A bit more bitterness in aftertaste. Very nice and impressive at this ABV.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Oldham Beer Festival. Hazy deep red with a small head. Has a high sweet hopped nose and a gritty texture that subdues the tropical fruit notes.

77ships (4305) - 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.

allmyvinyl (4254) - 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.
