Developed from wild Canterbury Whitebine variety in late 1700’s. Kent is a Region in England, home to Canterbury, where this variety was brought to the market in 1790. Gentle, fragrant, and pleasant. Recognised as having the most typical English aroma, with the best flavour historically coming from East Kent, this hop is in demand for copper-hopping and dry hopping of traditional ales. Goldings are also found to be useful for late hopping lagers, when a delicate aroma is required. Widely used and to great effect in many of the paler British Bitters, Pale and Blonde ales and ESB’s. Also effective in Belgian Blond and Tripel styles, Saison, Kölsch and lighter Lagers.
