UK Serebrianka

Serebrianka, or Silver as it is sometimes called, is a Russian aroma hop and parent to Cascade. Its commercial viability was tested for a staggering 20 years in the US before it was discarded in 1991 for a number of faults, most notably, its incredibly low yield. It is however still sometimes available for home brewing use.

Given its origin and flavor profile, Serebrianka is thought to possibly be related to Saaz and is said to impart some interestingly unique aroma characteristics that include hints of black tea, herbs and even tobacco. It has high humulene and farnesene, which no doubt contributes to its pleasant and largely continental aroma and taste.
