Released in the 1970’s, Atlas enjoys both good bittering and aroma qualities with intense notes of lime, blossom and pine. Like its siblings Aurora, Ahil and Apolon, Atlas has been cut back in commercial production over industry confusion stemming from its incorrect classification as a Super Styrian. It’s a Slovenian breed but is in actuality a seedling of Brewer’s Gold. Developed by Dr Tone Wagner at the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Atlas has also accomplished USDA accession.
