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…

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.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2011
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.

Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’11. Hazed reddish amber with slight head. Full on fruity, hoppy, citrusy beer, there is a decent malty bittersweet body delivering some lovely hoppy flavours, grapefruit and lemon to the fore. A very pleasant beer and my beer of this festival.

Fin (7039) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at Harbury Beer Festival, Harbury, Warwickshire, 03.09.11 Reddy brown apperance with a little haze. Some perfume on the nose but continuing whiffs suggest plenty of citrus hops, and that is exactly what the mouth experienced. Fresh, zingy, fresh green hops, lovely bitterness. This is superb beer despite the hazy appearance. A8 A3 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

Cask at the Southampton Arms on 18th July 2011. Red to amber with yellowy white lasting head and some travelling lacing. Spicy aroma. Liquid spicy, fruity with berries, then a very bitter finish. A touch of smoke. Engaging texture. Superb.
