Hersbrucker is now the most widely grown variety in Germany, especially in the Hallertau region, due to its disease resistance. It was bred specifically to produce a variety resistant to verticulum wilt. Hersbrucker can even be found organically grown on several small installations. With low alpha acids (2-5%) and low cohumulone, it is a very pleasant aroma hops with a balanced fruity, spicy, and floral character. Used for years, primarily in German lagers, but this variety has now branched out into some fine English cask ales. It has been cloned several times in an attempt to improve its alpha acid content, but without success.
