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…

Pours copper red with well retained creamy head. Big tropical fruit aroma with caramel malt. Tate is big fruity hop wollop with nice caramel toffee backbone. Very very tasty. Can’t help but compare this to 5 am saint. Is it better? Depends which day you get the 5 am saint.

JorgeLee (1800) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 Cask at the Horsehoe NW3. Slightly unusual - looks like a full coloured reddish brown ale but nose shows strong citrusy hopping. Bitter taste with grapefruit in the hops and a good firm malty background. Long finish. A very good pint - possibly a touch one-dimensional in the bitter hoppiness?

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.

shovel_foot (2) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012 does not count
From the bottle. Pours a deep amber red - huge hop haze. Great punchy citrus, pine and resiny grass aromas. Full bodied beer that tastes stronger than 4.6%. Its very moreish. Sharp, citrus biterness very well balanced by a complex malt character. Will be getting this beer again soon!

On tap at Haand Festival 2012 Dark amber color, big creamy beige head. Fruity and grassy aroma, hoppy taste too with lots of fruit very well combined with the malt profile. Lovely bitterness and finish.

jamestulloch (3498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2016 Can from Cork & Cask. Hazy amber body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of strawberry, orange, caramel and wood. Flavour of toffee apple, blood orange, coffee, grass and strawberry. Thin to medium body with a slick, oily texture. Light fizz. A rich, juicy Amber Ale, with a nice fruity hop character than others I’ve tried. It’s quite complex for 4.6% ABV - I’d love to try a stronger version.
