To my palate, these hops taste pleasantly floral when used at concentrations that are just enough to taste the hops, but not too much as to start tasting hoppy. Dry hopping with around .75 to an oz. give the floral qualities. One of my favorite hops, not very imposing and is a crowd pleaser. Not very piney or grassey.

Absolutely necessary for many English Styles
There really is no substitute for EKG's. They have a distinctive floral, woody, herbal aroma and flavor that provide the backbone for many styles such as English BItters and Pale Ales, Brown and Robust Porters, Dry Stouts... Even when used as a bittering hop, they have a nice mellow bitterness that is easy to swallow_x000D__x000D_

EKG started it all.
Was the first hop I ever bought by itself. 6oz was enough to get me started down the slippery slope of hops additions and addictions. Though I have many others to choose from now I still use this hop in most of my British style brews.

Nice finishing hop for English ESBs
I like the taste and aroma of the kent golding hop. I use them for dry hopping not at the end of teh boil, since they are less pungent than other hops. I use them in several English style beers.

Pair it with Fuggles
This is an awesome hops to pair with fuggles. I have used this in just about every kind of british beer you can imagine. It gives ales a really nice traditional flavor of nectar and citrus.

a classic!
I use these subtle hops in just about every English style ale I make! I recently dry hopped an english style pale ale with them giving that extra fresh hop aroma and taste to the end result. _x000D__x000D_Most recently I used these towards the end of the boil in a farmhouse ale...smelled great when it was brewing! _x000D__x000D_The packaging wasn't vacuum sealed like they usually are this time (pouch/bag had some air in it) but the hops were still very fresh...

Earthy flavor
These hops have a great earthy flavor, especially when paired with Fuggle.

U.S. Golding vs. EKG
The golding variations over seas and in the U.S. only have subtle differneces. Not being able to put my finger on the slight differences. I prefer the U.S. variety as to the East Kent variety.

Great UK hop
I'm a big fan of this hop for it's lemon-lime flavor/aroma if used in high quantity late in the boil. This can add great depth to an american wheat or an interesting note in an east-west IPA. The lemon-lime is very different from Sorachi Ace. I find it much more pleasant, and less lemon-rind-y._x000D__x000D_Also great for subtle hop flavor/aroma in british ale styles.

Excellent in English Ales
I use the British Goldings rather than the US ones for a lot of the British beers I brew. Nicer flavor and aroma. It has a nice floral quality, with no harsh or of tastes.
