The variety has a very distinctive American aroma. Often used as a general- purpose kettle hop for a smallish proportion of the hop grist. However, the variety has also of late been used to provide special fruity, blackcurrant and lemon notes in traditional brews, especially in Christmas ales.
Bramling Cross used as a late hop or dry hop, the effect on the final beer flavour can be very interesting. This is an under-appreciated hop which can give the brewer considerable scope for experiment.
