My homebrewed Goldings with the Tower Of Power became one of my best ones so far. Very smooth, delicate taste, very nice aromas in hop. The taste reminds me immediately of my first Goldings from Shepard Neame's I bought and enjoyed on the train in Kent om my way to Royal Tunbridge Wells on holiday.
