Whitbread Golding is similar to the many Goldings but has a more robust flavor and hoppiness. Its decent yield for England has caused it to be very popular and is grown both commercially and in small plots for craft and home brewers. It’s primary use is in England. It has good vigor, low alpha acids, but up to 30% cohumulone which gives WGV its kick. Myrcene is 48% and well balanced by humulene in a 2:1 ratio. It has a pleasant European aroma. It has been around (formally) since 1911.
