Origin: Slovenia. Imported from England in the 1930s and thought to be a Golding, the ancestor of today’s Styrian Goldings Celeia was actually a Fuggle. Acclimating to its new home, this variety has developed a more delicate, “continental” profile than English-grown Fuggle hops.
Usage: Aroma. Styrian Goldings Celeia can be used for light bittering duty in a number of styles but shines as a late kettle or dry hop for English bitter and pale ale, mild, brown ale, as well as a wide array of Belgian styles.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Invitingly earthy and resinous as befits its Fuggle background, but with a more refined and restrained nature. When used in a hopback or as a dry hop, look for heightened floral and sweet spice.
