Surprised by the low AA but a nice solid Noble hop
I love these hops. Excellent clean flavor and aroma. I use in lagers and mild ales.
Very good flavor and aroma, one of the better finishing hops. They have a flowery aroma. I haven't had much luck dry hopping with them, so I stick to the last 15 minutes of the boil.
For making German style lagers this is a good aroma hop. I add it after flame out when I'm whirl pooling the beer.
