3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, 30 April 2009. Standard Pictish blond colour. I’m not entirely sure what impact the agave syrup is supposed to have but I certainly couldn’t pinpoint it. However, this didn’t seem to have the usual Pictish hop rush. Also a little sweet. Clean enough but not one of their more inspired efforts. More of a novelty brew really.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. I approached this with some trepidation as Chris brought it back to the table. Clear pale gold, thin white head. The agavve is noticeable on aroma, but not unpleasant. OK in mouth, quite hoppy just not very stingy on finish. Bit lacking in malts. Very stingy on tongue. Sweet. Just not sure.

something has gone seriously wrong in the world, here is as Pictish beer I don’t like. a departure from the usual hoppy bitters, as the name suggests this is brewed with Agave Cactus syrup. For me it just doesn’t work, slightly sweet, dry, and yes, reminiscent of tequila. lightly hopped (unusual for Pictish), and overpowered by the agave
