Aroma: This hop has a delightful spicy, herbal, and citric aroma.

These unique flavours make it the perfect choice to be used with lagers, and Belgian ales.

Description: Sterling is a wonderful hop variety that shares traits of both Old World and New World hops.

Drawing its parentage from the noble Saaz variety, this hop was bred in Oregon, USA with traditional beer styles in mind.

Its flavour and aroma profile is in many ways similar to that of Saaz, with distinct herbal, floral, spicy and earthy notes. But it also has light citrus nuances more reminiscent to that of classic American hop varieties.

Mostly used as an aroma hop due to its low alpha acid content, Sterling works great both in traditional beers such as Pilsner, Heffeweizen or Bock, and in hop-forward American IPA and Pale Ale.
