Description: Selected from an old German land race, Tettnanger is grown the world over. Swiss, US and Australian varieties can be found on the market today though some foreign versions labeled "Tettnanger" are actually a hybridized mix with Fuggle and not considered a true Tettnanger hop. Though characteristically similar to Hallertau and genetically similar to Saaz, Tettnanger has notably more farnesene content giving it a soft spiciness and a subtle, balanced, floral and herbal aroma. It is also great as a dual-use hop, and considered by many as being particularly well suited to European lagers and pilsners.
