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…

visionthing (2575) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Hazy amber with an off-white to beige head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, caramel, pine, tropical fruit, malt and hint of spices. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Finish is bitter, a bit dry and quite citric. Medium body. Well balanced. Lots of flavour and a very good session beer. Refreshing and easy to drink with a long aftertaste with fruit, citrus and a decent bitterness.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2012
From cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen, London. This is a glowing blurry burgundy-red beer with a medium sized off-white head. It has a light malty and fruity aroma. I get tones of caramel , chocolate malts and dried fruits. Quite a nice little aroma. It’s soft on the old CO2, and it feels mildly oily in the mouth. The taste is also malty and caramel-fruity. Some ripe red apple-bitterness in the background blended with a drop of peach. Tasty and quite enjoyable. 22.07.2012

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Cask @ Brudenell, Leeds. Ruby red body. Citric orange/grapefruit notes, pine and sweet malts on the nose. Caramel/biscuit notes come to the fore in the taste, providing a solid backbone for the tangy hops. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Great session beer.

Draught (Oliver Twist, Stockholm) - Amber/brown in colour. Hoppy and fruity aroma with notes of grapefruit, toffee and dried fruit. The taste is fruity, tangy and hoppy with nicely balanced notes of grapefruit, raisins, malt and caramel detected.

johndoughty (3844) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Bronze with a small creamy head.Hoppy with a bitter finish. Lots of body considering its strength and surprisingly complex. Another good one from this brewery.

jamestulloch (1224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Aroma: Faint aroma of strawberry, orange, caramel and wood.

Appearance: Clear amber body with a thin off-white head that holds well. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing.

Taste: Toffee apple, blood orange and strawberry. Quite grassy and bitter.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a slick, oily texture. Flat carbonation.

Overall: A light, juicy, complex Amber Ale, with more of a fruity hop character than others I’ve tried. I’d like this even more if the ABV was a bit higher and it had a slightly fuller body.

fantti (675) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Hana @ Leskinen. Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on melko niukka jättäen pienen reunuksen. Haju on mukavan monipuolinen: pihkaa, trooppista hedelmää, puumaisuutta, havua. Taustalla on lisäksi vielä karamellia ja marjatoffeeta. Maussa taas on vahvana pihkaa ja havua, lievempänä hedelmää ja karamellista makeutta. Ei ihan niin monipuolinen, mutta hyvä. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläisen katkera ja todella hyvä prosentteihin (4,6) nähden sekä suht raikas, vaikka katkero on lopussa hieman raskas. Prosentteihin nähden loistava olut, jossa on hyvä katkero ja runko, pihkaisuus on vahvimpana sekä hajussa että maussa. Hedelmää on hajussa melko paljon, mutta maussa taas ei niinkäään. Hieno olut.
