Work well in English bitters as finishing hops
The German Northern Brewer hops taste better than the domestic. They have a pleasant earthy flavor and add a nice aroma.

northern brewer
I use this type a lot in my wheat beers. It makes a great bittering hop as it as a nice clean flavor to it.

English ale hops
This fall I made several English ales that used the northern brewer hops. It's well suited for the style being earthy/foresty rather than citrusy. I prefer the later but for this style the hop goes well.

Not just for bittering
Northern brewer hops also have a nice taste. They have a smoother bitterness than some hops coupled with better taste. Kind of an earthy or woody flavor.

nice finishing hop
Its got a strong fragrant evergreen aroma. I made a beer and used them as first wort hops and they added a lot of flavor. I dry hopped to get the evergreen aroma._x000D_I use them in German style lagers, and some English Ales.

Not the best but not bad.
This is a good hops for English ales. It brings a earthy/almost minty/ forrest like flavor to the beer. I've used it in English IPAs and it has give a nice well rounded bitterness and flavor. I do personally prefer Hops like Willamette/Fuggles but that's more personal preference then anything.

Good for bittering and flavor
I prefer the German to the American Northern Brewer hops. I use them in First Wort Hopping and in addition to a nice smooth bitterness, they have a pleasant flavor. I recently used 2 ounces in a nice IPA.

anchor steam beer clone hops
Honestly these are not my favorite hops in general and I don't use them more than a couple times a year but if you are looking for a clone recipe or something similar to Anchor Steam these are the right choice and should be used exclusively throughout. Gives your beer that kind of earthy/woody flavor and aroma which works perfect with that style.
