Progress

Progerss was developed at Wye College (a daughter of WGV) and released for commercial production in 1964. Generally grown as a substitute for Fuggle in areas hit by wilt, it has many of the same qualities but in essence has a slightly sweeter sometimes lime fruit character which creates a softer bitterness. Excellent for pale ales, lighter bitters, wheat beers and porters. It has been used in Hop Back's Thunderstorm; Wood Brewery's Hopping Mad.
