East Kent Goldings

hops

East Kent Goldings are a type of hops grown in the Kent region of England. They are similar to Kent Goldings and Goldings. The difference lies mainly in where they are grown.

They are a staple in British ales and bitters and provide mild, floral aromas and flavours. Although suitable for bittering, they are especially good as a finishing hop or for use in dry hopping, where the delicate flavours shine through in the finished beer.

The quintessential English hop, they are truly delicious!
