Floral aroma Review by Jason

(Posted on 3/25/14)

Product Rating:

I added an ounce when I turned off the flame. I chilled down to 170 and kept it there for 20 minutes, then chilled to pitching temperature. The aroma was pleasant and mild.

Product Rating:

These hops have a pleasant flowery aroma. I've used them for dry hopping and at flame out in some of the lagers I've brewed.

I like Trappist ales and Hallertau is well suited given it's aroma and spicy taste.

A good hop for German lagers Review by Koosman

Product Rating:

Use them at 20 minutes to get a nice taste. Use them with a hop back to get a flowery aroma. I use them along with a bittering hop when making German style lagers.

Flower aroma that's good in German lagers Review by Orson

(Posted on 1/10/14)

Product Rating:

The aroma is mild compared to some of the pungent hops I use but it's still detectable. It has a pleasant flowery fragrance, that makes them a good choice for late addition hops.

Product Rating:

I use this hop quite a bit. It has a mild bitterness, with an incredible pleasant flavor. I like to dump in some of these hops at 20 left in my boil, it gives a nice touch.

great for kolsch Review by Justin

(Posted on 11/13/13)

Product Rating:

I added 1oz of the hallertau along with an oz of tettnang to my kolsch. This was batch #12 that I have made, and this beer came out the best of all my previous brews.

I didn't get much aroma from them Review by Dan

(Posted on 11/11/13)

Product Rating:

i boiled them for 5 minutes as instructed per the directions. But when I drank the beer these wasn't much aroma. Is it the hops? Should I have boiled for 2 minutes and let them seep in hot wort for a few minutes?
The taste was ok, not overpowering, more complementary.

Mild and pleasant aroma Review by OD

(Posted on 9/5/13)

Product Rating:

I use them for the mild flowery aroma, either dry hopping with them, or adding them after flame out for 20 minutes. I usually use them in Pilsners and Bocks, and maybe a Belgian beer.
