Hop: Cicero


Cicero was bred at the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Slovenia in the 1980s by Dr. Dragica Kralj from a cross between Aurora and a Yugoslavian male. Aroma is similar to Styrian Golding and is a sister hop to Cekin. Due to lack of acceptance by the brewing community it is grown in low acreage.
