Breeding/Development: Germany. Bred at the Hop Research Institute in  Hüll to replicate a Mittelfrüh-style aroma profile with improved yield and disease resistance, Hallertauer Tradition was released in 1993.

Brewing Application: Aroma. True to its name, Hallertauer Tradition is right at home in traditional expressions of German styles: pale and dark Munich-style lagers, Oktoberfest, Bock, Weissbier. It does very well in Kolsch and Altbier, and alone or in a blend for classic Pilsners.

Sensory: Hallertauer Tradition displays a classic Hallertau character of strong herbal and spice components with an underpinning of bright fruit. Complex balance of classic “hoppy” character with floral, earthy, and new-mown hay notes.

Maturity: Middle-early

Yield: 1850 kg/ha
