Williams Bros 7 Giraffes Extraordinary Ale 5% promised an eclectic blend of 7 varieties of malted barley, fresh cone hops, elderflowers & lemon zest. Crikey, but what’s it like? Refreshing, aromatic & quite moreish. A sweet hoppy smell, then a bitter hit with a light floral sweetness and lasting lingering bitterness on the tongue. The hops dominate. It’s a full bitter hit for my palate, with a more subtle malt quality. I liked it though, something different and not half bad.
Maybe this beer is one for the lasses? I don’t mind this sort of behaviour as when she’s drinking, she can’t be sarcastic about me drinking. The squeeze even asked me whether we had more of this one, which is quite a compliment to it. Maybe she should write a beer blog. She told me she liked the sweet floral smell and odd flavour. The peat gives it a hint of whisky with sweet & sour flavours.
The squeeze finished her beer, didn’t appreciate my comment of “3-1, I win” replying with “It’s not a competition”. But it is isn’t it?
