An offspring of Brewers Gold with some ancestry from an American wild hop, this English-bred high alpha variety later found favor and acreage all over the world. In Germany it is known primarily as a bittering hop. German Northern Brewer is predominantly spicy with an undercurrent of woods and wild fruit, suggestive of its Brewers Gold parentage. Overall balanced with lasting flavor that reads as simply hoppy - not as outright woodsy and bright as US-grown Northern Brewer. Medium intensity and floral tones.
