Earthy taste
They seem to go well with English ales. I made a 5 gallon Maris Otter ESB with an extra 30% of Maris Otter and it was great. Then I made it the regular way and the hops had much more taste impact, so they can be muted by a larger grain bill.

East Kent Golding
I have tried both the U.S. and the U.K. Golding hops. I prefer the hops from U.K. as they have a nicer aroma/flavor.

Earthy / Woody
Either you love it or you don't but it goes hand in glove with English bitters. I use them for bittering, flavor , and aroma. Recently I've been dry hopping with them and not adding them during the last 2 minutes.

I like to use these hops in some of my wheat beers and in few of my stouts. It has a pleasant earthy flavor as well as a nice piney aroma.

I buy 2 pounds of east kent goldings a year. I use it in many of my beers, of all varieties. I used it as a bittering hop, flavor hop, and aroma hop.

Good milder hop
I use EK Goldings hops in a lot of the British beers I make. They have nice flavor and aroma for that style. I add them during the last 15 minutes usually, and for aroma during the last 5 minutes. I sometimes dry hop with them too.

Good classic hop!
This one smells & tastes like herbs & lemongrass to me. Like something you'd put on chicken to bake or stir fry. The Us version doesn't come close to me. Only the original has this level of goodness imo.

Great for British Beers
I really love pairing this hops with fuggles to help create an awesome British ale. I honestly haven't had bad luck with that pairing whether it be ESB, or IPAs.
