yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2008
Tasted 25/02/2008. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Copper, rather than ruby red. Diminishing off-white head. Clear. Subdued caramel and milk chocolate, all slightly stale, on the nose. More of that in the mouth with a pleasant drying roastiness. Carbonation bite. Medium bitterness. A little flourish of herbal/piney hop flavour on the palate, which surprised me nicely. Caramel lingers too. Becoming a little moreish as I get into it, for sure. Better with a little less carbonation and if it were fresher. Goodish.
