This designation also fits Tettnanger, Spalt and Saaz and refers to their high amounts of humulene, and low amounts of alpha acids. These varieties also have high aromatic qualities. Hallertau has spicy aroma. It is useful any time during the brewing process but is more favorable for late additions or dry hopping.
This hop was grown from seed from a Hallertau Mittelfrüh and an unknown male and raised by German immigrants in NZ last century.
It retains many of the characteristics of Hallertauer Mittelfrüh and is virtually indistinguishable from it.
