Yes, Fuggles is basically the same.  Willamette is very close, also.

I don't like Fuggles or Willamette, so I used Glacier the last time I needed Styrian Goldings.  I think it made a nice substitution.

Jeff, you can join the Fuggle hater club that Gary Glass and I are starting.

Thanks for the invitation.  Do we pay dues?
I find Willamette to have a metallic flavor for some reason.

Wow, haters are going to hate.  8)

I sort of enjoy the "earthyness" of Fuggles in real ales in the UK. Some of that is in Target and Challenger. Maybe the high sulfate levels balance that?

Though Styrian Goldings is just Fuggles grown in Slovenia, I do like the flavor and aroma they give to a beer, and I find it spicy. This is the signature hop used in Timothy Taylor Landlord bitter.

Now I like Simcoe, but my wife just says "cat pee!" or should I say "feline urine". I think she is a Simcoe hater. We are have our likes and dislikes.

I'll second what Jeff says here. While I like UK Fuggles, I really like Styrian Goldings. I know that they are genetically the same, but they taste quite different to me. Styrian has more of the floral, lightly fruity, and spicy qualities. Substitutes that i use: Styrian Celeia, EKG, and Glacier are all good ones.
So it goes.
