I find Styrian Goldings gives a great floral aroma with no grapefruit. My favorite hop in fact. I made a really great SMaSH with it, MO, and 1469. Good times.
masswinhester - I've been experimenting with Styrian Goldings and 1469 as well. Did a Timothy Taylor Landlord, a "masterpiece" according to my British friend. Yesterday I repitched the slurry into an English Mild using Styrian Goldings. I love the combination of that hop and yeast. Have you done much else with 1469?
Indeed I have. It has pretty much been my house yeast for the last two years, so I am very happy that it is a year round strain now!
In fact, I was thinking about this thread, and thought that my Landlord clones tend to have a slight orange/citrus taste to it, so perhaps the styrian goldings do lend some citrus notes. However, with the smash I did not get that at all, and instead got this incredibly floral flavor and aroma.
Other than that, a little of topic, so apologies, I think 1469 makes a great dark mild, bitter (obviously), English pale, a good porter (not great), and a very very good barleywine.
