Helga is an Australian cultivar, formerly known as Southern Hallertau. Helga was bred from a Hallertauer Mittelfrüher in order to have the same characteristic noble hops aroma. Helga is easy to work with—no matter at what point she is added into the brew, even dry hopping, the results are ever pleasant. It has an alpha acids content of 5.6% with high humulene. Mildly floral and spicy, Helga made a quiet debut, and it took nearly 10 years for her to catch on, but her production is being increased as craft brewers take interest.
