Aroma is grassy hops, with a little amount of sulphur which breaks it a little. Taste is seriously minimal, very light body though quite bitter.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 19, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Well, I saw it come, the name "Silver" is not too much a guarantee if you see it in a Beer, it was a little squashy and bubbling in the foam, very pale is so.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2005
(Cask at The Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria, London) Clear straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, peach, light caramel. Taste is medium sweet, peach, some floral. Watery light body that lacks carbonation and really reduces the enjoyment of an otherwise enjoyable beer.
