COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

A powerful and deep bodied pale ale with a fruity spectrum of aromas. This robust beer is brewed using a balance of flavour malts and Pacific and Alantic hops, the result is a massive dry-hopped beer with a perfect profile of bitterness, sweet vanilla maltiness and a blend of citrus passionfruit and mango on the finish.
The beer is named after a powerful and warlike tribe of ancient Britain, occupying approximately the counties of Monmouthshire, Breconshire. The Silures made a fierce resistance to the Roman conquest about AD 48, and it remains unclear whether they were actually militarily defeated or simply agreed to come to terms with the Romans!

Absolutly lovly hard dry ale. Coz za swietny wytrawno-gozki sesyjny ale. Wyglad piana wielka twarda niczym slimaka domek, powywijana, trwala do konca. Bardzo gozkie, dubeltowe, Przytlaczajace chmiele, niewiele slodowosci i sporo tropikalnych owocow: kwasne grejfruty, cytryny, limonki i liczi., metne pomaranczowo zolta barwa. Zapach perfum i passiflory. Perfekcyjne sesyjne Ale polecam

Noe uklar brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter syrlig som grape, lime, eple. Tørr og syrlig i smak. Tørr og syrlig avslutning

Hazy amber colour. Overpowering chalky texture that entirely masks any flavour beyond some bitterness. Pretty bad.

The_Osprey (5968) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Cask, HP at The Hare and Billet, Blackheath, a couple of weeks ago. As ’Celt Experience Celt Silures’. Amber orange, clear, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is light with boiled sweets, gummy bears. Body is light, smooth with low carbonation. Taste is very soapy up front, floral, twiggy, some chlorine and bleach notes, apple. Very soapy and astringent to the extent of being undrinkable.

Light Amber, hazy with little head. Very slight pine aroma. First impression is that this is overly sweet for an IPA but backed up by some sharp bitterness & astringent pine. Not what I would call easy drinking & for me, too sweet for a session IPA... Rated by BrewTom

kokkenrolv (278) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is ripe fruits, some orange, pine, dms. Light golden, hazy, small white head. Light/medium sweetness, medium+ bitterness, taste is dominated by harsh bitterness, astringency, some pine. Light body, medium carbonation, astringency results in a very dry mouthfeel. Must be something wrong here.

Light amber, sticky white head. Medium body. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, mango and pine. Plenty of fruit in the taste too; malt is biscuity and dry. Good stuff.

tmrmwel (1720) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy orange, with a rocky head. Aroma is hoppy tropical notes of apricots, peaches, and some foresty herbal notes, as well as some sweet malty notes. Light to medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter hoppy pine, orange peel, grapefruit and a nice hoppy touch, as well as a balancing malty back bone. Lingering bitter finish.
