Description

 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.

Classic English Hops
Authentic English hop to use in all of your English Beers. Has a light and pleasant floral aroma. Pairs great with Fuggle hops also!

Stout
Used this in a stout to get that traditional English character. That's exactly what I ended up with.

Don't overlook this classic hop!
EKG is one of the classic aroma hops out there - light soft citrus and spicy earthiness, it's beautiful. Try it on top of an American Ale, or of course, a classic English Pale Ale. Light, complex - you can't go wrong with 225 years of cultivation...

Future Use
Looking down the road to a butterscotch ale...can't wait.
