Hop Fuggle Organic (UK) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - A hop long associated with typical English Ale brewing. Organic Fuggle has typical English
flavour, frequently blended with Goldings to improve "drinkability" of the beer, and adding
roundness and fullness to the palate. This robust hop contributes all the essential
characteristics of flavour, aroma and balanced bitterness to organic ales, particularly as its
relatively low alpha acid content requires a high hopping rate to achieve desired bitterness
levels. Sometimes used as a distinctive dry hop. Typical usage: All English style Ales, ESB, Bitter,
Lager, and Lambic.
