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…

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
[330ml bottle] Chestnut reddish brown pour, again almost totally flat after an initial flurry. Very inviting bitter hoppy aromas, sweet caramel in there as well, quite floral. Tastewise the immediate comparison was BrewDog’s 5am Saint – they are very similar. However, Rapture isn’t as hoppy, the malts have more say – reasonably sweet, but not overly so, the woody notes compete with the piney hops – and the end result is pretty pleasing. I got a bit of smoke in the aftertaste as well, which was interesting [11082011]
