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…

jamestulloch (1349) - 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.

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.

Cask gravity at the Wandsworth beer fest preview night 26/03/14. Orange red coloured with a loose off white head. Nice fresh lemon grass aroma with berry hops. Flavour is tropical fruit peach and lemon. Clean cal ale ferment. Really enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Thanks Craig for sharing this bottle. Had this alongside the High Wire and Cannonball. An orange-red amber ale with a lacy white head. Aromas of pineapple, caramel, toffee and some pepper. Caramel flavour also, quite nutty, some fruits- passionfruit and orange again. A bit yeasty. OK.

Bottle at home. Deep copper amber pour, small bubbly tan head. Nose is big pine, grapefruit. Hint of toffee. Delightful smooth caramel on the taste, quickly matched by lovely, massively refreshing orange/grapefruit hops. Really nicely balanced, good hoppy session beer. Yum.

yespr (31056) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011
From cask. Pours dark orange to brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, grapefruity, peachy and citrusy hoppy. Crisp bitter, fruity and subdued sweet. Bitter and lingering floral fruity into a dry and peachy to grapefruity hoppy finish.

On tap at Craft Beer. Slightly hazy amber beer. Tiny white head. Smooth low carbonation palate. Lots of piney fresh hops. Trace of sulphur. Smooth finish. Decent enough, lacking a little body. Original rating 3.3.

6th August 2011
Hazy red-brown beer, little off white head. Light dry palate. Good malt backbone with a very light trace of smoke. Nice red fruits, some orange fruit too. Semi dry finish with a mildly bitter aftertaste.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2011
330ml bottle with Ben. Tastes like a 5am Saint with a less subtle hop profile. In a good way. Could do with a shot in the arm alcohol-wise.

Attractive red-brown color, frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and sweet. The taste is certainly bitter, but balanced with a fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel’s pleasingly constructed. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite good. It’s not Magic Rock’s premier offering, but certainly worthy.
