- A high yielding variety that is under MBC evaluation for brewing. High specific weight (68.1 kg/hl) and low screenings in official trials are excellent attributes in the malting process, ensuring high alcohol production for the end user. It has performed well in Agrii trials (104% treated, 88% untreated, 64.5 kg/hl) across the UK.
- Consistent performance across all regions and suitable for all soil types. Medium height (73 cm), reasonable lodging (7) and excellent brackling resistance (9). Medium maturity (+1).
- Excellent resistance to Mildew (9) and moderately resistant to Net Blotch but weak against Rhynchosporium (4) and Brown Rust (4) which will require attention.
