Golding Hop

Golding hops consist of a group of traditional English aroma varieties which have been cultivated since 1790. The cultivar originated in England and were name after villages in East Kent (Petham, Rothersham, Canterbury, Eastwell). US Golding is the Canterbury strain. It is susceptible to downy mildew, but has good pickability of small size, moderately compact cones.

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 a 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.
