Pilgrim

Use in brewing

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.
