Atlas has been described as having good bittering and aroma, with intense notes of lime, blossom, and pine. Like its siblings Aurora, Ahil, and Apolon, Atlas has been cut back in commercial production due to the industry confusion it caused when it was released as a SuperStyrian breed when it is actually a Brewer’s Gold seedling. It is susceptible to and often infected with several viruses such as Prunus, Hop Mosaic and Necrotic Ringspot. It is a Slovenian breed which accomplished USDA accession. Its production has been reduced in favor of the more traditional Styrian varieties.
