Its a particular variety of hops grown for ornamental purposes. Humulus lupulus "Aurea"
Its been around for a very long time so i would assume its origins are likely english.....
Curious to see if it can be used....

Will be difficult without a roughish guess on AA%. Flameout hops?

If it's actually derived from Saaz I myself would start calculating around 2.5 to 3%.

All hops are good for beer. Go for it.
This reminds me of my introduction to Chilli when I thought that first pretty little Habanero was an Ornamental chilli.
