#HBBAdvent Beer 2: Magic Rock Rapture Red Hop Ale (Huddersfield)

[NB: Some editions of the Calendar feature Moor's equally excellent red ale, Confidence. Ask us about a funny story involving Jen, a bomber of Confidence and a very nervous celebrity sometime.]

says: Rapture is our full-bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. Five types of malt and six types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with pithy orange and tropically citrus flavours which are 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…

We say: Jen, her mum and I enjoyed this while chugging along on a narrowboat on Yorkshire's Rochdale Canal after a particularly fruitful visit to Magic Rock's tap room. It tasted amazing then, in the height of summer, and tastes even better now in the dark depths of winter. Chewy, caramelly, hoppy - all the good things - Glenn
