Sterling was successfully bred to overcome Saaz's susceptibility to mildew. Developed over 8 years in Corvallis, Oregon it was released in 1998.
Sterling's oil content is rather unusual with both very high farnesene and very low carophyllene. This creates a delicately spiced, citrusy aroma with both a floral and herbal punch. Sterling's heritage is complex too and is the result of a mix of Saaz, Cascade, Early Green, Brewer's Gold and another, unknown variety.Alpha Acid: 6 – 9%
