Inspired by a mythical, giant-killing soldier we’re tempted to say this gold medal winning pale ale will slay you with its palate-boggling depth of flavors and surprisingly dry finish. Bet we’re not big on wordplay or swordplay. So we’ll just let Silvius speak for itself.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Corked bottle. No date but probably an older bottle - as this was bought at quite a discount. Hazy amber pour - three finger head. Nose is pleasant and floral with only a bit of degradation of the hops. Flavor is good enough - mild and barley driven with a bit of herbal-bitter hops lingering in the finish.

Bomber bottle. This beer seems to be overly carbonated. The malt flavor is decent, hops are weak but present. Kind of a soapy aftertaste. Tasted much better in my opinion on tap. Then again I had a 9 beer flight there so my taste may have been off there.

theisti (3905) - Kansas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
25.4 oz corked and caged bottle purchased at MGM Liquors in Golden Valley, Minnesota. The pour is a clear golden orange with a crackling two inch off white head that falls with loose bubbles. The aroma is soft clove Belgian yeast, toasted cracker malt and a bit of fruit floral hop. Some flat grass present as well. The taste is a pleasant blend of the clove Belgian yeast, the malt and dry floral hop. The palate is light to medium bodied, high carbonation level and a dry finish. Clean, easy drinking beer.

commonmac (1064) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Amber/copper in color with minimal head. Slight cloudy nature. Aroma is relatively muted. Taste has a slight grain quality with hop notes towards the end. I get a little sourness which doesn’t belong. Bitterness lingers. Actually grows on me with additional sips. Relatively straightforward. Kind of boring.

Sampled at Northgate Liquors MN beer tasting. This was a bit muddled overall, but had a decent clean taste to it.

Draft at the brewery. This seems a bit "off" right from the beginning. This has the same soapy impression as the wit, if a bit less noticeable. The mouthfeel isn’t substantial enough, and it generally comes across as a starter homebrew. (#5697, 8/31/2014)

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2014
Tap at Minnesota State Fair, Land of 10,000 Beers section. Light caramel, a smidgen of fruitiness in aroma. Cloudy dark copper brown color. Muddled fruit, a little bitterness. Thin-medium body. A bit flat, flavors don’t really develop into much of anything.
