Sylva* ("of the forest") is a true Australian aroma hop with a bohemian accent. With the chemical and organoleptic profile of a refined aroma hop, Sylva can be used to good effect to bring typical hoppy characters to Pilsner and pale lager.
Freedom of expression may find the brewer using Sylva in a range of alternative beer styles, however Sylva was specifically developed as an Australian grown fine aroma hop for application in the popular pale lager style.
The hop aroma is complex yet subtle, with floral notes (high levels of linalool) and well rounded herbal (epoxides of humulene) characters which are reminiscent of the forest floor and fresh sawn timber
Co-Humulone: 24-28% of AA
Total Oils: 0.9-1.4 mls/100g
