Possibly the cleanest bittering hop when used at 60 minutes plus. When used as a flavouring hop, 20-10mins, you will recognise the classic Australian lager flavour of Victoria Bitter, for example, and to a lesser extent Fosters and Crown. Great care should be taken if trying to use as an aroma hop, particularly dry hopping, as you can end up with an unpleasant green hay flavour/aroma.
