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 I’d have a second pint tho, quite pronounced flavour.

GlassBrass440 (71) - 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 I’ve yet to find a session IPA that is truly amazing. But I’ll keep trying.

Ambro206 (146) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2014
Birra bionda, dall’aroma incredibile di frutta tropicale e erba. Il corpo è leggermente mancante e questa caratteristica è ulteriormente amplificata dall’abbondante luppolatura che rende la birra sbilanciata.

Bozo_skeleton (568) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2014
Blonde legerement cuivrée, carbo moyenne de très fines bulles, collet fin et belle dentelle. Aromes plein d’agrumes, de sève, une pointe de caramel. Plutot mince et fluide, un final tout en amertume costaud sur des fruits exotiques avec une longueur qui n’en finit pas.
