5.0 / 5.06 ReviewsClassic Hops for English BitterThis hops is a cross between Northern Brewer, and Eastwell Golding. Released in 1992, this hop has nice clean bittering, and aroma, and is widely used in the UK.April 30, 2013targetI 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.December 15, 2013targetI like to use these in my English ales as bittering addition. Good clean flavor.January 13, 2014Like Goldings but more bitterThey 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_April 1, 2014ESBGreat for British Pale Ale styles.
