Calais Golding is a true Golding variety, almost identical to Early Bird with light but spicy flavouring and sweet aroma, but heavier yielding & early maturing.
There is special demand for these hops for use in copper hopping and dry hopping of traditional ales. Goldings are also found to be useful for late hopping lagers when a delicate aroma is required.
The cones produced on this variety are very full and ornamental as well as a superb variety for brewing. Calais Golding has a moderate to strong growth habit and will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature.
