Are U.S. Golding hops much different than East Kent Golding hops? Please let me know if anyone has experience with the differences in them.

This is a great hop! (EKG), but pricey. I have found the U.S. to be much cheaper than its UK cousin. Perhaps import $$?

Very subtle differences but probably not noticeable to most people. I can't tell the difference between most UK vs. US hops.

Same hop, different environment. East Kent is a small area, so the real thing is pricey.

Yakima Goldings and Kent Goldings are real close. The US Goldings are likely Yakima.

I'm using US Golding in my English beers and have been happy w/ the results. I did get true UK Fuggle though. Both from hopsdirect for a pretty good price. There used to be a BC (British Columbia) Golding but they stopped producing them and the US version is whats available.

Styrian Goldings aren't actually Goldings. They're a variety of Fuggles.

Yup, a Fuggle with some Golding characteristics. I wouldn't say they're interchangable.

what would a good substitute be for Styrian Goldings? I'm brewing a Strong Golden Ale and my LHBS doesn't carry Styrian.

Fuggles is the same thing except they are not grown in a different region.
