Default EK Goldings

anyone have any ideas on another hop with similar characteristics to EK Goldings? I can't find them around and are looking for something similar for a recipe I want to try.

I don't know if you can truly find another hop like EKG, one that can take its place. You could use Fuggles, not as a substitute but as a different type of English hop. If you are making an English style beer you can probably use any low alpha acid English hop in place of EKG, something like Styrian Goldings.

Problem being, the good true substutions might be harder to find than EKGs. Like U.S. Golding or UK Progress

Crystal might work, depends on the style.
