Germany / Pellet Hops / 5.5%


Despite the rather strange-sounding name, translated from German it only means 'Emerald'. Bred with the purpose of creating a more disease resistant alternative to Hallertau Mittelfrüh, it was released for large-scale production in 2007. It is a low acid, low aroma hop with an interesting oil balance. The aroma can be described as spicy, fruity but with some floral elements as well. Daughter of Hallertau Gold, Smaragd is a wonderful dual-purpose hop. Best for - Ale, Amber
