Herald hops heralded the introduction of dwarf hops in 1996, along with her sisters Pilgrim and Pioneer. An acid profile of 11.9-12.8% with 36% cohumulone makes some brewers reluctant to use Herald, but with higher myrcene oil, she is described as having a clean bitterness and a nice nose of orange and grapefruit. Her vigor is good, storability is moderate, she has an excellent tolerance to disease, but her yield, like many dwarves, is low. Nevertheless, she is employed in some excellent craft beers, especially in the UK.
