Hallertau Magnum is fast becoming a German brewing favorite, and is moving right up there towards 1st place for most-grown high alpha variety in Germany. It’s no wonder why Magnum has gone global and is used in a variety of beers—despite its fairly high percentage of oils and low cohumulone, its high alpha acids seem to win out, so that this is primarily used as a base bittering hop. It has very good vigor and yield, and superlative storage stability (90% after 6 months). It is said to have a clean, bitter, and sometimes citrusy flavor.
