Also referred to as WGV, Whitbread Goldings are a traditional English varietal first selected as a seedling in 1911. With an aroma of earthy, botanical and floral notes, Whitbread Goldings are most commonly used to add aroma and flavor to English Ales.
The alpha acid content ranges between 5% to 7.5%, though this hop is not normally used for bittering. East Kent Goldings and UK Progress offer suitable substitutions for Whitbread Goldings hops when needed.
