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…

Rune (10510) - Tromsø, - SEP 23, 2012
Small glass served from tap at Schouskjelleren. Reddish-orange coloured body. Lasting layer, totally blanketing the glass. Aroma of apricot and pine. Fresh malt-fruity taste including notes of grapefruits, orange, resin with mid-sweet malts benaeth. Rounded bitter ending. Fine session qualities (happy drinking in friendly company with Hege and OleR in Oslo during a Saturday afternoon, 15.09.2012).

Piquante. vraiment red. Nez herbeux. En bouche le houblon est vraiment là avec une certaine ampleur ... Peut-être un peu timorée et sans surprise mais d’une belle tenue.

GlasgowTAD (1165) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2016

Hippoman (645) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Cask at The Newcastle Beer Festival. Deep, ruby-amber with a bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is muted but there is some dried fruit, sultana and spice detectable in in. The taste is earthy, twiggy and slightly jarring. There are some pleasant biscuity malt notes but on the whole it came across as a little harsh and grainy. A disappointment - I definitely expected more from this one. Maybe my palate was suffering as I drank this immediately after a marshmallow porter. One for the "try again if possible" list.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Can, pours cloudy red gold, off white head. Nice malty backbone, juicy grapefruit, light bodied, texture is quite creamy. Finish is long and bitter.

Idiosynkrasie (5861) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
330ml can. Cloudy, dark amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty and (partly citrusy) fruity hoppy aroma, notes of red berries, orange, mandarine, some pine, a nuttily touch (peanut). Taste is crisp hoppy, citrusy fruity, notes of orange, mandarine, hints of red berries and pine, a minimally chalky touch, caramel malty background with subtle sweetness and a minimally nuttily touch; lasting bitter hoppy finish. Refreshing, mouth-filling, very very nice.

weordie (648) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Pours red with a big foamy head. The aroma is sweet berries. A lovely sweet berry flavour is balanced out by a slight bitter finish, it’s a bit like a black IPA taste.

allanmb (69) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Pours deep amber with quite a bit of haze and thin beige head. Aroma of citrus and zesty hops with a touch of caramel and toffee. Medium carbonation. Taste of fruity hops and sticky toffee pudding fades to zesty bitterness. Medium dry finish. Very good amber. Not too malt forward.

Pours cloudy dark red colour, with small head which quickly disappears. Hoppy aroma. Back to basics beer. 4 ingredients, big flavour. :-)
