BarthHaas

First Gold

Great Britain

DESCRIPTION

First Gold is a dwarf variety which is very suitable both as a general kettle hop and also for late and dry hopping in all types of beer. First Gold has excellent aroma qualities and much of the flavour character of Whitbread Golding seems to have been retained, producing a well-balance bitterness and a fruity, slightly spicy note in ales. The combined floral and fruit aromas are ideal for modern Blonde, Pale Ale and IPA’s, Belgian Blond & Tripels, Biére de Garde and Saison as well as American Pale Ales. Also suitable for modern Pilsners.

KEY FLAVORS

  • Marjoram
  • Celeriac
  • Strawberry
  • Yoghurt
