So far, our Hops of the Month have gone the big and bold route. However, not all beers are of the hoppy variety. Think most things English or Belgian. The last hop we covered was Centennial, Cascade's bigger, more bitter cousin. This week we're cooling out with the East Kent Golding, a low-key but much-used English hop with a unique palate. If you've tried a few English ales or lagers (or perhaps some certain Belgian ales) chances are you've encountered the mellow yet flavorful contributions of the East Kent Golding. If you're interested in brewing (and/or drinking) English style beers, then this hop is an essential addition to your beer lexicon.
