Hallertauer Mittelfrüer is one of the original Hallertau-varieties, stemming from an old German landrace. Its lightly flowery and spicy aroma is what has contributed to the well-known “Noble Aroma,” and indeed, this is one of the original four “noble” varieties. In the last 50 years it has been steadily declining, primarily due to its grave susceptibility to German verticulum wilt and poor yield. It has been used to create many offspring, most of which are more tolerant to the wilt. It is now only grown on one farm in Germany. Despite its characteristics, if you love brewing lagers, it just might be worth trying this variety to find out why it was classified as one of the Noble Aroma hops.
