HALLERTAU: Noble German hop with a mild aroma, slightly fruity and spicy, flowery and haylike. Mild and pleasant, yet spicy, with herbal and floral characteristics. The predominant hop in Bavarian beer styles. At least 40 breeds of hops have Hallertau parentage in their line somewhere. The original German lager hop, named after Hallertau or Holledau region in central Bavaria. This type of hop is often used for beer types which demand a specific delicacy, mostly pils and lagers. Alpha acid content: 3-5.5%. The exact alpha acid content is indicated on every package. The availability and alpha acid content strongly depend on the harvest.
The signature landrace variety of the Hallertau region in Bavaria, Hallertau Mittelfüh is the epitome of noble hops. It can be used throughout the boil and is prized for its fine elegant aroma and flavor contribution. Mittelfrüh has been one of Europe’s most widely esteemed varieties for centuries and is synonymous with continental lagers, Bavarian styles, and many other types of German and Belgian ales. The aroma is complex but mild and approachable. A mixture of sweet, earthy, and herbal with vivid impressions of new-mowed hay, sweet spices, dried flowers, and warm forest aromas (dry wood, humus). Its many offshoots and daughters show some of these same qualities, but none has the same range and balance as Mittelfrüh.
