Wuerttemberger

Wuerttemberger is an old, German, noble aroma hop which is no longer grown commercially. Thought to have come from a landrace, its low vigor and poor yield made it untenable for commercial use.

If it can be found, it might be worth experimenting with for German-style lagers and pilsners and it is said to impart a pleasant European-style aroma on a beer. Some in the industry suspect it may actually be genetically identical to Tettnanger but this is unproven.
