Great for British Pale Ale styles. I use it for ESBs as a bittering hop.
Ingredients arrived timely, we're fresh, and the end product is delicious!
They have a similar earth taste, but add more bittering._x000D_I use them in my English ales that are a little higher in alcohol, like 7%._x000D_
I like to use these in my English ales as bittering addition. Good clean flavor.
I use this as a bittering hop. It is very similar to Northern brewer. Not so good as aroma as it has a grassy/earthy flavor.
