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!

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 14, 2013
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.

Bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. Pours a dark golden colour with one finger of white foamy head. Aroma is biscuity. Taste is biscuity and some notes of mango? Medium carbonation.

hangunder (193) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Nice juicy citrus and pine aromas, along with a note of sweet malt. Clear golden color with lots of effervescence, foamy white resilient head. Malt forward flavor, with some toasty/biscuit notes upfront and earthy hops on the finish. The fruity/piney hops dont come through as much in the flavor. Medium bodied and average carbonation. An interesting take on an APA, but not outstanding.

GregClow (2821) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright and slightly hazy golden with a wispy white head. Fresh, vibrant aroma with notes of citrus peel and mango, and a background of toasted cereal with a bit of honey. Soft mouthfeel with light carbonation, almost cask-like. Beautiful flavour with punchy notes of lemongrass, bitter orange, pine and lychee, with a bit of graham cracker sweetness poking through in the start before the bitter hops take things through to a bone dry finish. And only 4.6% ABV? Excellent!

Fruity hoppy aroma with a touch of pine. Big flavour with a nice lingering lemon bitterness.

Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma: grapefruit, melon, slight vibe of golden malts in background. Fresh hop crispness.
Apperance: hazy, murky amber gold ale. Medium lighter top with rings of lace.
Taste/Palate etc. clean mid bodied with good well paired carbonation level. Lovely dry cut hop bite, not overpowering mind you, just enough. Grassy citrusy bitterness. Finishing with lemongrass. If you are not a morning person this would be great coffee alternative. Oomph, kick without dangerous alcohol levels. Very impressive.

Spab (2143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with average-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, minerals, biscuit and some resiny notes. Flavour has notes of orange, grapefruit, pine resin, biscuity malt and a minerally character. Packs a rather bitter finish. Pretty nice.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a slightly hazy, very bubbly gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Pretty decent aroma: Fruity, bready and hoppy -- simple but pleasant. Flavour is hoppier then expected, nice and piney, along with bready malt and fruit, and finally a big bitter finish for the style. Medium bodied. A nice hoppy Golden Ale that when done right, is quite enjoyable.

Metalchopz (2132) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Pours a light golden colour with lots of transparent tiny particles floating around. The foamy white head becomes soapy and leaves thick lace after going down slowly. Hoppy nose with pine cones, oranges and fruity malts. A slight dryness in the finish, but overall refreshing. Not crazy hoppy, but definitely present. A mix of fruity-citrus malts (grapefruit notes) and mild pine hints. A nice brew between an American Pale Ale and an IPA.

JaKeAFC (453) - ITALY - APR 10, 2014
50 cl bottle, 4.6%, 2.70. Dark gold color, almost clear with some particles. Big stable creamy head. Fuity perfume from orange and tropical fruit, with hops resins already. Aroma: blond malts with grapefruit, hints of caramel, biscuits, ginger and a whopping amount of bitter hops. Wild hops everywhere, taste intensely bitter. Fairly dry, crisp, raisiny and grainy finish. Medium bodied, oily texture. Loads of hops here, really bitter one, all packed in a ridiculous 4.6%. Possibly an entire 50 cl gets a bit difficult to get down, would fit better with some snacks maybe. 450 ratings so far, i think this is the bitterest one I encountered, amazing.

probstblueribbon (2766) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a nice bright white head. Aroma: Rich tropical fruits, resin, biscuity and bready malts, light melanoidins(?), pine and citrus notes, quite full and balanced. Palate: Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little slick. Flav.: More peppery/pine/resin with a bit less tropical fruitiness, still quite nice, lots of bread/biscuit malt; dry with big bitterness and a nicely balanced finish in terms of hop and malt flavours...maybe a little too bitter.

Pretty darn nice. Id prefer a bit less bitterness.
