the UK. According to the National Hop Association of England,
the culitvar was first grown in Kent in 1875 by Richard Fuggle.
This hop imarts a mild vegetal, woody, or earthy aroma. Alpha acids are low (3.5 to 5% AAU).
When Fuggle is grown in the USA (Washington and Oregon) and imparts a bit less of the characteristic aroma when compared
to its English cousin.
As one would expect, this hop is most often used in British style beers such as bitters, mild, British pale ale,
stout, porter, and English style IPA.
