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 - The Southampton Arms, London. Fine & bubbly lasting beige head atop a cloudy, ruddy amber body. Fresh & vibrant grapefruit, peach, strawberry & pine aromas. Pine, gently resinous & grapefruit flavour profile. Cracking depth for the ABV in my book. Nice contrast between an initial juiciness and a finishing dryness. Soft, rounded & firm mouthfeel, gently spritzy crisp carbonation, medium body, big lingering zesty grapefruit bitter finish with a hint of mid berry in the aftertaste. Plenty to offer without going overboard & remaining effortlessly drinkable.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle, Coppers8til8, Newcastle. Beautiful heady aroma of fresh hops, pine and grapefruit, with a hint of resin to it. Clean smooth palate, with dryness on the back of the throat, lovely rounded mouthfeel, some faint woody characteristics, overall a stonkingly good read ale from a fine brewery.

Beersiveknown (4918) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 18, 2012
dark ruby amber, forms large dense foamy head. Pine resin, kiwi fruit and oranges on the nose. Sweet caramel and citrus pith with a drying bitterness in the finish. Fairly sticky with a medium carbonation.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2012
It has a colloidal appearance and a think head with mild carbonation. Lovely hoppy beer with a rich orange kick coupled with a hint of astringent pine. A really lovely and balanced beer.

KnutAlbert (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
I am imressed by the amount of flavour in this session strength ale. Oak, berries, strong herbal bitterness. Intense, very refreshing.

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Lätt kropp men mycket smak. Torr, sträv, , mycket grape, tallskott med en lite fenolisk rejäl beska som ligger kvar länge i munnen. Riktigt trevlig.

@ The Vintage, Leith. Not Edinburgh, yes there is a difference. Pours amber/red a touch hazy. Malts up front in fact its almost all malty but the hops appear in a long, long finish. A very drinkable beer.
