Technical characteristics of the Premiant hops variety

A variety developped in the Czech Republic from a cross between the Saaz variety, and probably another high alpha variety. It was registered in 1996.
Its aroma is more intense than classical aromatic varieties, hence its "dual-purpose hops" classification, but it is still pleasant, with citrus notes.
