4.9 / 5.09 ReviewsFragrantI use it mostly for bittering in my English Ales. But on my last batch instead of using East Kent Goldings, I used these for flavor and aroma. I like the aroma and would consider using these again as finishing hops.January 29, 2014Good hop for flavor and bittering in AlesThe northern brewer hops add a nice flavor to my ales. When used as a 60 minute addition it adds a solid bitterness as well as the flavor. I just used it in a good English Maris Otter ale that came out great.November 5, 2013Good HopsWhat can you say? These pellets get the job done, no second guesses here.September 30, 2013Great flavor and aroma. It can be used at any point in the boil.I like this hop for both bittering and as a finishing hop. The bitterness is smooth and really worked well in the Fulton's Libertine Imperial Red Ale kitJune 14, 2013Nice quality!The hops, having a higher AAU, can be can be reduced somewhat in created recipes. The bitter characteristic is present yet not overpowering. I had not tried Northernbrewer yet and like what it has to offer for recipe creation.April 15, 2013Good flavor and aromaI use this in English Ales. The hops have a mint or pine aroma and taste. I dry hopped with them for 3 days and was satisfied with the result.March 27, 2013Bred in 1934 in EnglandThis hops was bred in England in 1934, and is not to be confused with the Northern Brewer website. This is a great bittering hops that has been cross bred to create many other varieties of hops.March 25, 2013Very versatile hopThese hops are great for both bittering and aroma. Highly recommended!February 16, 2013Good for alesDid a simple smash with 2-row and this hop. Came out excellent and as a nice light refreshing beer. Can't go wrong with these hops, you'll get similar result as with Cascades with these.February 13, 2013
