Product Overview

This classic German aroma hop is often associated with Bavarian-style lager beers and distinguished by an intense, pleasantly-harmonic bitterness. At one time, this was the major Hallertau landrace variety with a highly acclaimed aroma profile..

This German varietal is one of the four original Noble Hops. Expect the traditional European aroma of mild spice, floral and a touch of citrus associated with these original Noble Hops. Traditional roots make these hops best suited for most lagers, particularly German pilsners.

A very nice mellow spicy hop with great flavor with citrus tones. Hallertau Mittelfruh is considered to be the highest grade Hallertau Noble hop available. Use this hop for all traditional lagers, belgian ales, or any European ales

Hallertau, Hallertauer and Hallertauer Mittelfrüher are all names for the original German Hallertau variety. Dating back more than 100 years, it stems from an old German landrace and is one of the original four “noble” hops. It features a lightly flowery and spicy aroma.

Though its popularity has been steadily declining over the past 50 years — primarily as a result of grave susceptibility to verticillium wilt and poor yields — it has been used to create a multitude of offspring, most of which are wilt tolerant.
