Golding (US) hops are descended from the original East Kent Golding. In North America, they were first grown in British Columbia and then appeared in the state of Washington in 1993 and Oregon after that. They are no longer grown commercially in Canada. They feature a subtle bitterness when used as an early addition but are predominantly used for their quintessentially ‘English’ flavor and aroma.
Golding’s use is primarily in English-style Ales, though they also see wide use in Barley Wines and Belgian Ales as well. It is low yielding, susceptible to disease and difficult to harvest, but their delicate and typical English aroma keeps the variety popular.
