US Tettnang is mild with spice and earthy notes.

Breeding/Development: USA. An American-grown cultivar of the famous noble German landrace hop. Most US Tettnang acreage is in Oregon and Washington.

Brewing Application: With slightly higher myrcene levels and a more spicy, earthy profile than its German-grown counterpart, US Tettnang excels as a finishing hop in American craft beer reinterpretations of European styles: wheat beers, Kolsch, Alt, and lagers.

Sensory: Mild with low-key “noble-ish” spice and a warm, slightly fruity earthy character (wood, forest floor, black tea).
