East Kent Golding (UK) Hop Pellets

  • $2.79


Universally the first choice for an aroma hop in English Ales. Very mild with pleasant, flowery overtones. Smooth and delicate with floral, lavender, spice, honey, earth, lemon and thyme overtones. Most hops stand out against the malt. This unusual hop actually blends in and complements the malt flavors. You truly cannot add too much at the end of a boil as an aroma/flavor hop. Often referred to as Kent Goldings, British Kent Goldings, BKG, or East Kent Goldings.
