  • First Gold Hops

    A dwarf hop bred at Wye College, on extensive farm trials in 1995. First Gold is from a cross-pollination of WGV with a dwarf male. It has a very attractive aroma which some liken to Goldings but with a higher Alpha content than traditional aroma hops.

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