Hop Rhizome - Sterling
Sterling is an American "noble-type" hop showcasing a floral, spicy, and slight citrus aroma. Used for any number of pale ales, lagers, and wheat beers.
Alpha Acid: ~4.5
A Saaz hybrid released in 1998 that displays similar noble aroma and oil composition to the Czech variety, good yield and moderately resistant to Downy Mildew, generally considered a favorable Saaz replacement. Mid-season maturity.
