Only developed by Wye College in 2000, Pilgrim has already proved popular as an alternative to the more traditional high-alpha hops such as Northdown and Northern Brewer. Pilgrim is a fantastic hop for both bittering and aroma. It imparts a traditional English bitterness which provides an excellent base for best bitters and pale ales and a well-rounded, full-bodied character which complements the darker malt colours. Flavour notes include spice, cedar and honey and its higher levels of Humelene and Selinene give it a refreshing ‘hoppy’ aroma.
AROMA: CITRUS, PEAR, SPICY
