As we do, we like to brew up one gallon batches of simple beer. We use one malt and one hop variety – they are known as SMaSH beers. For this post, we brewed one of these types of beers using Cashmere hops. Here’s a video with our thoughts about this variety’s aroma and flavor.
This hop has a strong lime flavor. Mike picked up some green grape flavor or maybe some blueberry flesh taste. The herbal undertone was present as well.
I think it would be a good single hop for a summer ale like a lawnmower beer. Mike thinks this that Cashmere hops would pair well with Ekuanot or El Dorado hops.
Mike also thought it maybe a good hop to use in a shandy or a radler.
