Nugget was bred in 1970 to meet a growing demand for high-alpha hops, and remains one of the most widely cultivated varieties in Oregon hopyards. Its lineage includes Brewers Gold, Early Green, and Canterbury Goldings. Known best for the smooth, clean bitterness it imparts, Nugget can also be put to use as an aroma hop. It is right at home in most American craft styles, especially those for which hop bitterness is a primary component. The aroma and flavor are mild and quite sweet with a low-key, herbal/fruit quality: lemon candy, ginger, fresh oregano, rosemary.
