COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled; 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 Iíd have a second pint tho, quite pronounced flavour.

erickok (4006) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 9, 2015
Modern hops, golden malts. Very nice development with typical English yeast feel (not sure it thatís actually used though) and fine mouth feel for such a moderate abv brew. Head was a bit unstable but not bad looking in the end. (50cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre l

Aroma: bread and grain malts, some straw, some citrus. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: citrus acids, grain malts give some sweetness, medium body, average duration. Overall: very nice Session IPA, light, yet quite complex. Pint at CBR2015, Shoreditch.

Definita sulla bottiglia come una golden ale, ma assomiglia più ad una apa quasi estrema. Anche se la gradazione rimane bassa i sapori e i profumi sono erbacei e leggermente fruttatti. Frutti tropicali. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

GlassBrass440 (179) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2014
Aroma is of hop pellets, lemon, orange peel, grass, and hay. Clean bitterness in flavor. Some astringency in the finish. Appearance is slightly hazy gold. Fluffy white head sticks around for a while before leaving a beautiful, lacy mess down the glass. This one is good, but Iíve yet to find a session IPA that is truly amazing. But Iíll keep trying.
