Another one for my mates across the pond! I'm getting ready to pick up a six-pack of Goose Island's Harvest ESB. While not exactly 'traditional', it's nicely balanced between a firm hop presence (35 IBUs) and a mix of pale/caramel/wheat malts. It's hoppy, both in terms of bitterness, and w/some flavor on the back-end as well, and has a medium hop presence in the aroma as well. I think that if it was bittered w/something like Challenger or Northdown and then late-hopped/dry-hopped with Fuggles or Goldings, it would strike me as particularly 'British'. Yet it's 100% Cascade (that quintessentially floral/grapefruity American hop). When I was in England this last time, I had the pleasure of trying Wylam Brewing's 'Angel', which was a single hopped, all-Cascade special bitter. It was DELICIOUS. But this got me wondering, is this becoming more common in England (the use of typically-American hops) in British real ale? Honestly, I'm generally far more of an 'English hop guy', but every once in the while the citrusy American varieties call out to me. How often do you guys see the use of things like Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo, Citra, etc, or any of the 'Americanized' German varieties? Any particular style that they show up in? Or are most real ale brewers hanging on to (a venerable) tradition in using classic English varieties?
