4.9 / 5.08 ReviewsGreat for brown alesThe earthy smooth bittering qualities make this hop perfect for use in brown ales. I will use .75oz x 60min for bittering and maybe .5 oz in the last 2mins for aroma. Gives a nice bitterness that is not overwhelming and just a hint or aroma but lets the malt character come through.January 18, 2013Great for english stylesThis hop has a nice earthy aroma and flavor perfect for English styles.March 1, 2013Have to buy.This is a great hops. Its probably a bit of an over-exagergation but if feels like 75% of English recipes call for this hops in one form or another. I've never used it for bittering due to its low AA but it really adds a nice wood/herbal flavor to your beer regardless of if you are flavoring or adding aroma.June 27, 2013fuggleI have had both UK fuggle and domestic. If you can...by UK fuggle as it tastes less like dirt and grass.January 8, 2014fuggleI prefer the UK fuggle to the US fuggle. It tastes less like dirt and moss.January 9, 2014Worked out wellUsed these in an English style bitter and it came out great! Nice and dry and not too upfront with hop notes. Will use again!April 2, 2014August 1, 2016
