Notes:
Northern Brewer (DE) has a pleasant European aroma profile and its moderate bittering (which is still relatively high for German lagers and pilsners) makes it a nice, dual-use hop. It is very important in the European hops industry due to its verticulum wilt resistance. It has very good storage stability, up to 80% retention after 6 months at 20° Celsius. Widely grown in Germany, even in the Hallertau region.
