Furano Ace

Furano Ace is an aroma hop originally cultivated by Sapporo Brewing Co. Ltd. in the late 1980’s. Bred from a mix of Saaz and Brewer’s Gold, it has a pleasing European-style aroma but it is no longer grown in any significant commercial capacity. It was primarily grown in an effort to create a Saaz-like aroma variety that would outperform the then common Shinshuwase hops variety.
