im doing a vienna lager and a pilsner with only EKG hops right now, wont be ready for a while but ill post here when they are. i tasted a sample of the vienna and nothing struck me as "this is NOT a typical vienna lager", so as i figured and as people used to say often EKG is near-noble. yes i know kent golding is more about where it is produced than a type.

I made a lager with some fresh/wet crystal that was fantastic. Planning on using some southern passion in another, it's breed from saaz and Hallertau. I've had pretty good luck shooting for 25-30 IBU, with 10-15 at 60 minutes and the rest at a hop stand. I like to dry hop at about 8 g/gallon.
