Kinda...I don't hate Willamette like I hate Fuggles, but I seldom use it.

I like Fuggles.... I used it oin two batches this last weekend; an English Mild and a Fat Tire Clone... both called for Fuggles.

BUT I do know people who are not fond of it.. or at least they say they are not,,, I never saw stop dringing a beer because of it.

I have. Not because I specifically knew it was Fuggles, but because I didn't like the beer.

i like cilantro and fuggles. i could eat a handful of cilantro.

regardless of taste, anyone who doesn't like the smell of cut cilantro is a communist. science be damned.


wait, doesn't that make me the communist?

I like to dry hop with Fuggles on some beers.

I like cilantro in food. Never had it in beer.

I like corriander in beer and food.

I like turtles.

Fuggles isn't a taste I appreciate in large quantities but as an addition I like it.
Coriander again in small amounts.
Cilantro I like

I recently brewed a beer that called for a mix of Fuggles and Chinook for flavor & aroma. I liked the smell of the hops out of the bags, but I am about three weeks into the fermentation and the samples taste like ass. It is supposed to be a light session ale, but the hops overpower the malt and lend it an almost skunky quality reminiscent of cheap American/Mexican lagers. This is my first time working with Fuggles in any capacity, and my first with Chinook as a flavor/aroma hop. I don't think I will be coming back to either hop any time soon.

FWIW, I love cilantro and corriander.
