5.0 / 5.09 ReviewsWork well in English bitters as finishing hopsThe German Northern Brewer hops taste better than the domestic. They have a pleasant earthy flavor and add a nice aroma.February 13, 2014northern brewerI use this type a lot in my wheat beers. It makes a great bittering hop as it as a nice clean flavor to it.January 8, 2014English ale hopsThis 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.December 21, 2013Not just for bitteringNorthern 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.October 15, 2013nice finishing hopIts 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.July 28, 2013Not 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.May 16, 2013Good for bittering and flavorI 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.April 1, 2013Dual useGreat flavor and aroma. Can be used at any point in the boil.February 22, 2013anchor steam beer clone hopsHonestly 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.December 26, 2012
