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…

Beer4000 (4485) - 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.

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.

ClubGonzo (4047) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ Haand Festival 2013. Amber body, medium off-white head. Aroma is catty herbal notes, citric peel, hints of earthy leaves and wet grass. Taste is cat pee, citric peel, lime, straw, hints of peaches and honey melon. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Pleasant enough, but not much more.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Bronze with a small creamy head.Hoppy with a bitter finish. Lots of body considering its strength and surprisingly complex. Another good one from this brewery.

77ships (3993) - 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.

wimpyjoe (3974) - 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.

DanielBrown (3825) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Hand pulled at the Victoria, Birmingham. Finally got to try this legend. I like and agree with MR’s description of grapefruit and pithy orange. Lovely red hue and beige froth. Easy to drink, but quenching and satisfying. Worth the wait.

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
The second real ale at the beginning of a session in the Cask Pub and Kitchen, London; Oct 2011: could I find any evidence of those 6 different hops and 5 types of malts used in this brew? The hand pulled pint looked good: more brown than red or amber in colour, the off-white head, deep and full. Healthy looking beer, the head leaving some heavy lacing as the beer level sank (in half inch increments). Those hops gave off a grapefruit, citrusy smell, some pine as well, the malts not really getting a look in on the aroma front. The taste was a better blend of flavours, the malts asserted themselves more in the mouth than in the nose. Still plenty of hop bitterness about, initially and at the end, with the malts taking centre stage during the whole drink. Overall it seemed an easy drinking beer which was well balanced and uncomplicated, even if it had a multitude of different ingredients.

tiong (3782) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm

Pours dark amber red with a bubbly head. Aroma of malts, hints of caramel, grassy hops and fruits. Taste is malty and sweetish with notes of caramel, grassy hops, pine and citrus. Finish is hoppy and slightly watery. Okay, quite tasty but perhaps a bit light bodied amber ale.
