Sunbeam is always yellow.

I picked up a couple of Sunbeam rhizomes this year. How do you like them?

This is only the second year for the Sunbeam, so I haven't brewed anything with them. It's a Saazer cross. If you look really closely at the lowest leaves, you can see some browning at the edges and I've only had two hot sunny days. I only planted it for the color, but should I get enough for a batch or two, I'll be certain to post.

I may move it to a shady spot next year. I had planned to do that this year, but the super AA rhizome never showed, so I didn't bother.
