Pioneer is said to have a classic English aroma, and mild-tempered bittering despite its average cohumulone of 38%. It is great used at any point in the brewing process. It is resistant both to wilt and to mildew, has fair yield, and very good storage stability. Bred at Wye College from Wye Omega and is a sister to Herald. Nice dual use hop, with a clean, refreshing bittering and an aroma with a lemony grapefruit citrusy and herbaceous essence with cedar notes.
