German Hallertau T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb
German Hallertau Mittelfruh T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package
Grown in the Hallertau region of Bavaria, Hallertau is known for being one of the world's finest flavor and aroma hops. This is one of the original Noble Hop varieties, and has been used as such for over a century.
Although traditionally used for both clean bittering and aroma, Hallertau shines more as an aroma and flavor addition hop because of generally low alpha acid content. Ideal for all traditional beer styles. Because of lower cohumulone content, Hallertau delivers a very clean bittering profile.
Aroma and Flavor
Expect light earth, light spice and distinct floral characteristics from Hallertau Mittelfruh. In lighter lagers and European styles, Hallertau is used traditionally and extensively as a late addition for a subtle aroma profile and lighter flavors.

Ok, so Hallertau Mittelfruh is not ‘new’ by any means. It’s really one of the oldest hop varieties still available commercially today. That being said, there really is no substitute for this classic noble hop, especially for your favorite German Style Lager. The more and more I re-visit the classics, the more and more I appreciate both the styles and the ingredients used to make them. One of these days, I’m going to make up a noble hop, English style IPA and see what kind of flavors we can pull from them!
