Smaragd (aka German Emerald) hops are a low acid, low cohumulone aroma hop with an interesting oil balance. Myrcene and Farnesene make up the majority of the oil composition with Humulene edging over Myrcene by about 10%. The aroma of Smaragd (German for Emerald) is predominantly fruity, but with some bold floral tones as well as one might expect from the oil ratios. Daughter of Hallertau Gold, Smaragd is a wonderful dual-purpose hop.
