X73 - Williams Bros 7 Giraffes (Scotland)

This scottish ale opens with a rather big, sweeping nose with notes of smoked meat, saw dust, spunge cake and muscovadosugar. A lot of smoky notes emerges with some air. There is a lot going on here, but I can´t say that I like it. It is burly in character.
The taste is better, with some cool aromas of red fruit, orange peels and undergrowth. The bitterness is fine. The finish is medium long but ends a little thin.
It is supposed to have wild elderflowers and lemon zest in the brew but I can´t detect any of those ingrediences.

78p   (tasted from bottle - 2011/06)
