Brewers Gold Hops
Brewers Gold is a complex bittering hop that is noted to have a sharp or pungent bittering quality. It also imparts a
fruity yet spicy aroma as well as having a black currant characteristic. It is on the low end of the bittering
hop scale at 8 to 10% AAU typically.
Brewers Gold can be used in a wide range of styles from English Ales to German Lagers and adds a decidely 'European' element to the beer. These make a good partner to noble varieties such as Tettnang and Hallertauer.
