Pahto is a high alpha American variety that was developed for hot side and early kettle additions to efficiently deliver bitterness to beer.
When used as a bittering addition hop Pahto provides a very neutral flavor to beer, and a pleasant bitterness. The aroma profile of the hop cone is described as herbal, earthy, woody, and resinous with some fruit.
Pahto is a super alpha hop cultivar with a very mild and pleasant aroma, high yield with a very high alpha content, good storage, and good resistance to hop powdery and downy mildew. The mother of Pahto is a breeding line of the HBC with similar characteristics. These valuable characteristics come to the mother by way of her father who is a fine “English gentleman” from the breeding program at Wye College in Kent, England.
