Cascade (New Zealand)

New Zealand Cascade features largely the same pleasant and distinctive ‘Cascade’ characteristics enjoyed by its US twin but are higher in alpha acids. Some dispute this comparison however, noting that while its characteristics are similar, New Zealand grown Cascade is more subdued in both flavor and aroma. Original Cascade was developed from English variety Fuggle and the Russian variety, Serebrianka.
