Bramling Cross has is often considered as having an “American-type” aroma. Its aroma and flavour is often considered intense, but not pungent, and carries fruity and citrusy notes of blackcurrant, loganberry, gooseberry, and lemon. A spiciness or vanilla character may also be present.

Its bittering characteristic is noted as prominent, but rounded.

Bramling Cross is generally seen as a dual purpose hop. Not surprising, the beer styles it most often finds its work in are English such as, Bitters, stouts, and porters. But, it can easily find a place in American pales, ambers, and browns; on account of its “American” flavour qualities.

It is often used as an all-purpose bittering hop; often in conjunction with other varieties. It has also become a respected, though regularly overlooked, late and dry-hopping addition. This is especially true in styles like a winter/autumn seasonal, or porter, where that blackcurrant/gooseberry and spice characteristic can shine.
