The queen of English hops with a pedigree dating back to 1790, East Kent Golding is to British brewers what Hallertau Mittelfrüh is to their German colleagues. A premium appellation, East Kent Goldings hops can only come from East Kent - ‘Goldings’ hops grown in other counties are known as UK Goldings. ‘EKG’ has been a spotlight flavor in the profiles of hoppy ales from the British Isles: IPA, pale ale, and bitter. It’s used at lower rates to subtler effect in Scottish and other darker, maltier ales. It's flowery with citrus peel or citrus candy overtones (lemon, white grapefruit, orange) and an herbaceous, spring meadow-like undercurrent. Otherwise gentle and refined, dry hopping can bring forth its citrus aspects alongside a fresh grassy note.
