It's much more C-ish than C++, and scales down much better than plain C (the big one is garbage collection). It probably scales up about the same, or better.
Having written quite a bit of C, and a bit of Go (I sit next to a couple of Go aficionados) I'm inclined to like it, and I think it'll be a pleasure to use for most C hackers who are just slightly above the lowest levels of bit-twiddling and register-mangling, but need to carefully consider memory allocations and layout.
