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 @ 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.

Beer5000 (5191) - 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.

BlackHaddock (5091) - 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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
From keg@Haand ŘlFestival 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.
