      Overall Impression (3)
      Bright golden. Thick tight head. Huge Kent Goldings and Fuggle aroma. Medium body, very low carbonation. Richly malty with a huge spicy resiny hop flavor and bitterness. Compares very nicely with Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. Excellent bottle-conditioned beer, with three pounds of hops per barrel.
