East Kent Golding Hop Pellets are a classic English Ale hop which has been used in kettle and dry hopping. 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. East Kent Golding is the queen of English hops with a pedigree dating back to 1790. East Kent Golding is to British brewers what Hallertau Mittelfruh is to their German colleagues. It's used at lower rates to subtler effect in Scottish and other darker, maltier ales. East Kent Golding has been a spotlight flavor in the profiles of hoppy ales from the British Isles: IPA, pale ale, and bitter.
