An offspring of Brewer's Gold with some ancestry from an American wild hop, this English-bred high alpha variety later found favor and acreage all over the world. In Germany it s known primarily as a bittering hop. German Northern Brewer is predominantly spicy with an undercurrent of woods and wild fruit, suggestive of its Brewer s Gold parentage. Overall balanced with lasting flavor that reads as simply hoppy - not as outright woodsy and bright as US-grown Northern Brewer.
