Northdown vs Northern Brewer

I’m brewing a London Pride clone that calls for northdown hops.
My local shop didn’t have northdown, so I substituted northern brewer.
Can anyone tell me how comparable these two varieties are?


Hopunion recommends Northern Brewer or Challenger.

Thanks for the feedback. That sounds promising.

Fuller’s website says that they use Target, Challenger, and Northdown - which is what my recipe called for (Target for bittering; Challenger and Northdown for flavoring). Next time, I plan to order Northdown from NB since my guy doesn’t carry it.
