British Aroma
Great hop for late additions in British styles. I've used this at flameout for an ESB that turned out great.

Substituted for Northdown Hops
I substituted these for Northdown Hops in a batch of ESB and I'm very happy with the results. I'd really like to see these made available as whole hops in addition to the pelletized version. _x000D_

One of my favorites
These are great. Use them for flavoring all the time. Still get a kick from watching pellets disolve when they hit boiling water :)

A good bittering hop
I've used it in place of Northdown and Admiral and it was fine. I like the bitterness, compared to some other hops. It's also got a nicer taste.

Great Brit Flavor
This is a great hops to add late into your boil for a floral/spicy flavor or to dry hop with to really get a nice well-rounded hop profile in your Englishe ales.

Dry hop hops.
I primarily use this to dry hop with. I find that it adds a nice spicey and floral flavor to any English ale. IT's nice to have on hand for anyone who wants to make a nice English ale.

Good finishing hop
Its a good late addition hop. Nice flavor and aroma. I've used these in a variety of ways, as flavoring hops at 15 minutes, as aroma hops at 2 minutes, as whirlpool hops, as dry hops, and as FWH hops.

Good flavor hops
I like the taste of Challenger hops in my English beers. I also dry hop with them for an additional aroma.

I ran out of perle when I was making an ale, and needed a sub NOW. My buddy brought over a few ounces of this hop. My beer turned out rather well. A little less bitter but the same great flavor. Needless to say I stocked up.
