Notes:
Perle (US) is still the Hüll bred variety from Northern Brewer and a German male, but when grown in the U.S, it tends to have higher alpha acids and a different balance of oils than the German variety. The U.S. variety tends to be high in Myrcene (up to 55%) with lower Humulene (around 30%). This makes it more useful in bittering in the U.S., although the aroma is pleasant and slightly spicy.
