The unbeatable German king of hops! Fantastic all-round workhorse. For German beers look no further!

This hop is crazy mild! I've used it twice and failed both times to get much of its flavour to come through. I live and brew in Germany and was even using Tettnanger from Tettnang - it only had 2.4% alpha acids. I'm sure that more experienced brewers can get its flavour to sing, but nevertheless, even though I know that this is a very loved hop (particularly in Germany), to be honest, I personally don't get what's so great about it.
