Hersbrucker Pure

The offspring of Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Saaz and a wild German hop, Hersbrucker Pure was originally tested by brewing giant Anheuser Busch as a replacement for Hersbrucker. After their interest waned in the variety, it failed to catch on as a viable commercial prospect. It has an noble aroma and flavor profile similar to that of its parents.
