I've used them in English ales for bittering, and sometimes for flavor. They have a woody and earthy taste, which some may not like. It does go well with the style so I use them.
I made an English bitter and find the earthiness is a little too strong for my preference. I will use less next time.
I like the aroma these hops give. Usually I add them at flame out and whirlpool, though I have dry hopped with them too. I use them only for English ales, I like my American Pale Ales hoppy and that's not this EKG.
I actually used these a a bittering hop in my brown ale. I have some left, so I'll probably try them as an aroma hop next time.
I can't really tell much difference between this and the English version so I use this because its cheaper. I like the floral aroma for my mild ales, and it also has a good flavor.
