Fuggle is an English hop plant, one of the oldest available varieties, developed by the Reverend Richard Fuggles in 1856. This hop plant tends to crop more heavily towards the head of the plant and produces large flowers sometimes referred to as banana hops. Traditional brewers highly prize Fuggles and produce a light flavoured beer. The aroma is earthier and less sweet than Kent Goldings. It has been revered ever since as the classic aroma hop for British Bitters and Pale Ales, often used in combination with Goldings. Fuggles are also suitable for Porters and Stouts. The alpha acid content ranges from 3%-5.5%. Wilt susceptible
