COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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 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 (9578) - 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

ladnewton (1803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2011
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.

Bottle from MyBrewerytap.com. Pours hazy dark amber with a huge creany off-white head. Aroma of lovely fruity and grassy hops. Taste is fresh and crisp fruity and resiny hops, pinecones and grass, very dry and tasty. Lingering strong mint, a good one.

DanielBrown (4381) - 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.
