Bobek is said to have a pleasant aroma, similar to other, more established European hops bred for their aroma. It was bred in its native Zalec region of Slovenia, along with Blisk and Buket, in an attempt to create both high alpha and good aroma in one cultivar. Its alpha content averages 8.3%. Despite its good yield, Bobek is not being commercially produced at this time, likely due to its poor yield. Bobek’s parents are Northern Brewer and a Slovenian male.
