Golden Star is an aroma hop that is commercially grown only in Japan. It is, in essence, a mutant form of Shinshuwase that was selected by Dr. Y. Mori from the Sapporo Brewery some time in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s. Like many other Japanese varieties, it is the offspring of Saaz and Whitebine conceived through open pollination. It is considered superior to Shinshuwase only because of it’s increased yield and improved mildew resistance.
