Spalter is grown primarily in the Spalt region of Germany, and is one of the original land race hops. It is considered to have noble aroma qualities and is likened to Tettnanger and Saazer. It is not grown commercially in the U.S. due to its low yield. Brewers like Spalter, but its demand outstrips its fairly low yields, even in Germany. It has a high humulene to carophyllene ratio.
