Hop: Ahil


Ahil was bred from Brewer's Gold and a Yugoslavian wild male. The acreage is limited in Slovenia as the preferance is for Styrian Golding as Ahil was received by the United States Department of Agriculture in 1972 and labeled "Superstrian" hops along with Apolon, Atlas, and Aurora. This created confusion in the hop trade as this implies the hop is Fuggle based and it is not.
