BSG - East Kent Goldings

Description: "Aroma. Regarded for centuries as England’s finest hop, EKG has been a spotlight flavor in the profiles of hoppy ales from the British Isles: IPA, pale ale, and bitter. It’s used at lower rates to subtle effect in Scottish and other darker, maltier ales. Aroma & Flavor 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. "
