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!

Very tasty golden beer. Over carbonated, this one gushed out of the bottle. Lasting bitter aftertaste, sharp hops, some grainy stuff going on, pretty good. Not sure I’d have a second pint tho, quite pronounced flavour.

Flaske 330ml fra Gulating Larvik. Delt med Håvard I Tyrihansveien 18 Jan 15. Aprikosfarget. Høyt luftig skum med kremkonsistens I midten. Lett uklar. Aroma av tørket frukt. Smaken ubestemmelig. Ukjent frukt som ikke var min smak.

330 ml bottle. Typical citrus IPA aroma, very carbonated with a large fluffy white head. Taste is hop forward with citrus fruit such as grapefruit most noticeable. The palate is slightly lacking and a bit watery. Overall an enjoyable and sessionable IPA but not in the same league as some of the others on the market.

Bottle @ home - Color: clear golden beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: hoppy nose, fruity and floral. Taste: light body with good malt taste well balanced by the hops with floral and grassy taste. Really nice fruity finish. Aftertaste: wet bitterness and floral. Easy drinkable. Nice!

Tåkete lys brun med to fingre høyt hvitt skum. Lukter epler, grapefrukt og korn. Smaker syrligbittert, mot besk. Druestein og sitrusskall. Avslutningen sitter.

A hazed golden ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with resinous floral hops, light sulfur notes and some light spoiled eggs. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light honey and herbaceous floral hops, light clovers, treacle, nice. Bottle from LCBO, 6 months past its Bb date.

Towey1989 (1182) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of passion fruit, lemon, some melon, slight pine, subtle yogurty yeast and grassy hops. Taste of passion fruit, sharp lemon, some mango, slight pine, subtle biscuit malt, a little spruce and grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Not the best Celt beer but it’s different. Hoppy, grassy and bitter. Ok.

Pours nicely with a good head. Smells pretty good - has a happy aroma. Tastes very bitter with a metallic aftertaste.
