Hop First Gold (UK) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - The variety is very suitable both as a general kettle hop and also for late and dry hopping in all

types of beer. First Gold has good aroma and bittering qualities, much of the flavour of WGV

seems to have been retained but with an added extra citrus quality; produces a well-balanced

bitterness and a fruity, slightly spicy note in ales. An orangey quality has been observed in many

beers brewed using this variety.
