Origin: England. 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. 

Usage: Aroma. Regarded for centuries as England’s finest hop, EKG has been a spotlight flavour 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. 

Aroma & Flavour Characteristics: Flowery with citrus peel or citrus candy overtones and a herbaceous, spring meadow-like undercurrent. Gentle and refined, dry hopping can bring forth its citrus aspects alongside a fresh grassy note.
