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

BlackHaddock (3780) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint at The Station, Oakengates on 29th June 2014. Golden brew with a full white foaming head which gave some heavy lacing. The hoppy nose hid the semi-sweet maltiness within the taste, a citrus bite in the taste also helped to ensure the finish was dry and bitter. One of the better beers on my mini-pub crawl that day.
