      Overall Impression (3)
      Red-amber. Big thick head. Lots of spicy Goldings aroma, with lots of caramel malt. Light creamy body. Richly malty with plenty of Goldings bitterness. Lots of oaky character that blends well with the bitterness. Lingering hoppy oaky mildly astringent finish. But the more I drink, the more diacetyl appears.
