Styrian Golding (aka Savinja Golding, Savinjski Golding, Yugoslavia Golding) is another hops variety with a confusing name because it doesn’t come from a Golding at all, but rather a Fuggle and has Fuggle-like characteristics. It was a major hops crop in the 1930s in its native Styria (in Austria on the Slovenia border), and has survived due to its tolerance to mildew which helped it to hold its own amid other varieties. It is now world-renowned and in high demand. It is a lovely aroma hop with high humulene and moderate myrcene and carophyllene. Even its farnesene, although low, makes its imprint on the aroma.
