Brewing Application: Aroma. Regarded for centuries as Englandâ€™s finest hop, EKG has been a spotlight flavor in the profiles of hoppy ales from the British Isles: IPA, pale ale, and bitter. Itâ€™s used at lower rates to subtle effect in Scottish and other darker, maltier ales.Â
Sensory: Flowery with citrus peel or citrus candy overtones and an herbaceous, spring meadow-like undercurrent. Gentle and refined, dry hopping can bring forth its citrus aspects alongside a fresh grassy note.
