I had the same problem with this as with
Berghem Beamish---to sweet and too
much hop aroma (even a bit "grassy"). The same comments as above apply, and
maybe some other hop than Goldings should be used. The roasted character
was right on, though.
I chose #1028 instead of #1084 because of the higher attenuation. It's
still to sweet, so I probably need to lower the mash temp to 63C (or use a
step mash similar to the one above).
