Bred in 1911 in Kent and first promoted in the 1930's both for its flavour and disease resistance qualities. Provides a distinctive sweet fruit flavour in beers, similar to, but more pronounced and robust than Goldings. It gives a citric, lightly fragrant aroma and flavour best suited to pale ales, light bitters and wheat beers. Used as a single varietal in McMullenn's AK original.
