Styrian Gold

Styrian Gold should not be confused with Styrian Golding (aka Savinjski Golding, technically a Fuggle-type hop). Styrian Gold is a Slovenian hop, bred from a Savinjski Golding and a Slovenian wild male. It has a noble aroma and a balanced hoppiness, which stems from its 1:1 alpha/beta acid ratio. Styrian Gold also benefits from good storage stability. It was released in 2009.
