4.9 / 5.011 ReviewsSaison hopsThis is a great hop to use with Saisons. Lower alpha% and great flavor without being overly bitter.June 26, 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, 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, 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 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, 2013Woody/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, 2014EarthyI'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, 2014GoodI find these not quite as floral as the Kent Goldings hops, but they are a suitable substitute if EKG can't be found. They are not too far off.January 26, 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, 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, 2013
