Bred at Wye College in the 1970’s, Yeoman is no longer available on the commercial brewing market, but instead has made its mark in breeding other notable varieties. It is responsible for Pioneer and also the Australian hop Super Pride, which has since superseded Pride of Ringwood.
Its alphas are very high for an English hop. It seems well equipped for disease resistance and sports a pleasant bitterness and a citrusy aroma.
