Description

A great dual purpose hop. Has a less spicy flavor than that of traditional Hallertau Mittelfrüh, and is able to retain its clean character as a beer ages because of this. It has a distinct floral character, with a slight emphasis on citrus/lime aromas. Great hop for use in Lagers, Pilsners, Bocks.  Also popular as a finishing hops in ales and IPAs.  Also known as New Zealand Hallertau Aroma.

I want a different bittering for my lager, rather than going with traditional Saaz.

Great substitute for Hallertau
Used this in a Cream Ale, .5 oz Wakatu, .25oz Cascade for bittering, .5oz Wakatu at flameout. Really nice spice notes, the lime notes I'm hearing about really only come through when I let the beer warm and open up. Going to make a single-hope version this weekend to see if I can tease out some more intense citrus with a dry-hop addition. Really like this hop. I hope It remains affordable and available!

Victoria Clone Recipe
Do not really have a positive or negative for the hops, as they were spec'd in a clone recipe that wasn't even close to Victoria beer. The clone beer got dumped.
