I found out the property I work on has a very nice plant of sunbeam hops growing. What kind of beer can I make with those types of hops?

I believe they are an ornamental variety.

Yeah, unfortunately you have the one kind of hops you cannot make beer with.

Not true. Sunbeam runs 4-5% AA and is moderately high in humulene and farnesene. It's similar to Saazer and good for pilsners.

ALPHA ACIDS: 4 to 5%
BETA ACIDS: 2.5%
COHUMULONE: 36%
STORAGE STABILITY: fair, similar to its female parent Saazer
OIL: 0.8 to 1.3 ml/100 g. Humulene 14%; caryophyllene 4%; farnesene 6%
Myrcene 56%; H/C ratio = 3.12. The oil is moderately high in humulene and farnesene.
MAJOR TRAITS: attractive lemon-yellow leaf color during the whole season., reddish brown stem color which contrasts nicely with the yellow leaves.
OTHER INFORMATION: This is an ornamental diploid hop which is not intended for commercial
production. However, the cones could be suitable for flavoring beer and
ales especially of a Saazer-type aroma profile is desired. The reduced
chlorophyll content makes Sunbeam sensitive to direct sunlight in
midsummer, causing shriveling and browning of the leaves. Therefore,
this variety is best grown in semi-shaded areas to maintain attractive foliage
during the growing season.
