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…

My favourite style of ale, and thankfully Magic Rock knows such an ale is best on cask. It is a lovely red in colour with sublime malt sweetness and rich fruits.

Keg. Pours a beautiful red with a solid head and lacing. Caramel with loads of red fruits, grapefruits, and pine. Quite hoppy for an amber. Magic Rock just doesn’t make bad beer (or beer any less than superb, for that matter)

Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. A deep ruby red coloured beer with strong orange marmalade, red fruity and sherbet flavours, hoppiness, red fruits again and a bitter slight woody finish.

On tap at OMA Bistró, Barcelona. This red ale is one of the best ones I tried. Very hoppy and fantastic aroma.

Pours cloudy dark red colour, with small head which quickly disappears. Hoppy aroma. Back to basics beer. 4 ingredients, big flavour. :-)

Can @ cafe Derat, large sample. Hazy amber color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, piney and grapefruity hops. Toffee sweetness, caramel fudge, but also hoppy bitterness. Wonderfully balanced and caramel body is big enough to make it complex and very tasty. Awesome brew.

Keg tap at the Cambridge Blue. Reddish amber, clear with a small off-white head. Resin, toffee, forest floor, a touch of banana in the aroma. Bittersweet taste turning quickly to a sharp bitter, with more resinous hop on the finish. Perfect tickly carbonation. A veritable godsend to an amberphile like me.

Cask at CBC, London. Dark amber pour with a light, tan head. Has a big, raw and fresh hop aroma, some grapefruit and pine. Medium sweet with toasty malts, lots of bitterness, very resinous pine, mild earth, some grapefruit, light grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, resiny hop finish, some toasted sugars and malts, justs lots of raw hops. I love this stuff.

Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is really hoppy and dank with a hint of dark fruits and caramel. Taste starts with dank/herbal hops, continues with spicy malts, makes me think of rye. Finish is hoppy with a nice, mellow bitterness. Medium, smooth feeling body with good carbonation. It packs a lot of taste for the low ABV. Really good amber ale, one of the best I had so far. Really hoppy and dank but you also get the spicy malts, making it different to a regular IPA and not just by the color.
