Aurum

Hüll-bred, delicately spicy, noble aroma hop

This hop is bred from a female specimen of the Tettnanger landrace. The breeding goals included reliably higher agronomic yields, as well as improvements in disease resistance.
It has exceptionally fine and delicate classic hop aromas with spicy-herbal notes and — depending on the timing of its addition — fresh citrus aromas. It is especially suited for traditional, hop-accented beers that are harmoniously balanced for high drinkability.

Aroma impressions of raw hops

Based on its high total oil content, Aurum has a strong aroma potential. Depending on the timing and quantity of its addition, it contributes a broad spectrum of aromas to beer ranging from classic hoppy spiciness to fresh and delicate citrus notes. The bitterness characteristics of the hop remain consistently fine and pleasantly mild throughout.
