Description

Universally the first choice for an aroma hop in English Ales. Smooth and delicate with floral, lavender, spice, honey, earth, lemon and thyme overtones. While most hops stand out against the malt, this unusual hop actually blends in and complements the malt flavors. You truly cannot add too much at the end of a boil as an aroma/flavor hop. Often referred to as Kent Goldings, British Kent Goldings, BKG, or East Kent Goldings. The ideal hop for making English ales, bitters, and pale ales.

Great hops, but slightly expensive here
These are great hops for dark ales. I added them to the boil in addition to northern brewer hops for a recent Irish ale that I made and it turned out great. There are mossy/grassy subtleties that come with these hops, which are more pronounced as they low in AA's. They have great storage retention as well and freeze easily. I was not a believer in pellet hops to begin with, but I have been won over steadily by their use in different brews, even if they have different qualities than their whole-cone bretheren. Much easier to measure out and use, and they seem to diffuse more easily into the wort since they are ground to a pulp. The only downside is all the hop dust that comes from pellets - it makes a huge mess, and creates even more trub to be filtered out. Will buy again, without a doubt.

Classic English Hops
Authentic English hop to use in all of your English Beers. Has a light and pleasant floral aroma. Pairs great with Fuggle hops also!

Stout
Used this in a stout to get that traditional English character. That's exactly what I ended up with.

Don't overlook this classic hop!
EKG is one of the classic aroma hops out there - light soft citrus and spicy earthiness, it's beautiful. Try it on top of an American Ale, or of course, a classic English Pale Ale. Light, complex - you can't go wrong with 225 years of cultivation...

Looking down the road to a butterscotch ale...can't wait.
