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 Id have a second pint tho, quite pronounced flavour.

Got to try this awesome pale ale with some good friends. A warm golden color. Had a nice hop aftertaste. Flavor stuck with me for a while. Im not a huge fan of pale ales but I could drink a couple of these.

Citrus notes but still has an element of skunk to it. Though its golden color shines through. The aftertaste could be more refreshing.

Superb. Light taste, with a slightly tropical flavor. Truly surprised on this one. Nothing foul on the finish. Delighted!

Dark, golden color. Hoppy tatse at front and nice finish. Slight vanilla taste that brought down the hops a bit.

jmgreenuk (5799) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 14, 2015
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a broken bubbly white head. The aroma is tropical fruit, sweet mango. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light pepper spice, fruity, light peppermint hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Plenty going on. A great session ale.
