Brewer's Gold

This is a sister seedling of Bullion Hop, and has a similar extraordinary vigour of growth. It is, however, sensitive to soil conditions and develops its full vigour only on a deep, well-drained soils of the brick-earth type. The aroma is of the 'American' type, but this is not so strongly developed as it is in Bullion Hop. In spite of its heavy yield and the richness of its cones, the acreage of Brewer's Gold in the UK declined throughout the 1960s owed to its lateness in ripening and sensitivity. Since then however, popularity has increased as small micro-breweries favour the strong fragrances for richer flavours.
