Golding Rhizome Flavor

This is a group of traditional and very popular English aroma hops grown prior to 1790. Widely cultivated also in the U.S. They are called East Kent Goldings if grown in East Kent, Kent Goldings if grown in mid-Kent, and Goldings if grown elsewhere in the U.K. There are many different named cultivars such as Amon's Early Bird, Cobbs, Bramling, Canterbury, Petham Rodmersham and in Worcestershire - Mathon. They tend to have a smooth, sweet flavour. Most types of Goldings will work in place of another (Whitbread Golding Variety for East Kent Goldings, e.g.). (Reference)

Some people in the hop trade think that Canterbury Golding is different from Kent Golding, but chemically and in brewing, they are identical. This hop has grown well in Oregon since its introduction in 1994, producing yields substantially higher than those found in England. Microbrewers and Craft brewers in the US are the major customers of Kent Golding."
