4.9 / 5.011 ReviewsEarthyI'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.March 30, 2014Woody/earthyI made an English bitter and find the earthiness is a little too strong for my preference. I will use less next time.January 18, 2014Good aroma hops for mild beersI 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.November 25, 2013Great multi-purpose hopI 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.October 20, 2013good valueI 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.September 1, 2013Not teh same as the East Kent (English) GoldingsIt has a pretty good mil flowery aroma but it's not as good as the English version. I used these in an English Mild bitter and it wasn't as good as I'd hoped.July 27, 2013Saison hopsThis is a great hop to use with Saisons. Lower alpha% and great flavor without being overly bitter.June 26, 2013Great aromaFragrant and pleasant with a subtle flowery aroma. i use these for aroma and flavor in in pale ales and English style ales.April 27, 2013Aroma HopsA true descendant of East Kent (Canterbury) Golding Brought to the US and grown here, this is a English Style Aroma hops. Use to make great English style beers. This hops has a spicy aroma, and elegant flavor.March 27, 2013Good substitute from the U.S.My recipe call for Kent Golding East hops. I substituted them with U.S. Golding. I could not have been happier with the taste and aroma given. I will continue to use U.S. Golding as a viable substitute.February 26, 2013
