Hallertau Mittelfruh is the Kaiser of German hops. It possesses the classic noble aroma popular in all of the traditional German styles. Humulene is the prominent oil in the hop and comprises around half (45-55%) of the total oils. It has a mild bittering potential (3-5.5% AA), but is clean, crisp, and perfect for pilsners. Hallertau Mittelfruh has seen a recent boom in popularity, with both farmers and growers, due to recently disease-free crops.
