Bred by Hop Products Australia in Tasmania in 1997, Sylva is an Australian aroma hop with a subtle and complex tasting profile. Progeny of Saaz, it is these roots that suit it well to light lagers and pilsners, imparting a bohemian-style hoppiness reminiscent of its Czech parent.
Some have described Sylva as decidedly earthen, with flavors akin to fresh-cut timber and the forest. It is perhaps apt then that its name be defined in English as “a descriptive flora of forest trees”.
