We’ve covered a number of German hops recently. Originating in America, this month’s hop, Liberty, is a close cousin to many of those famed hops. This shared German and American heritage gives the hop great versatility; you can find Liberty hops in a wide variety of beers, most commonly in lagers.
Deriving from the German noble hop Hallertau, Liberty’s mild floral and spicy characteristics and overall clean flavor make them an ideal choice for German-style beers. Because of its parentage, Liberty shares many characteristics with the noble hops. Relatively low in alpha acids, the hop is mostly used for aroma. Contrary to what many assume, Liberty hops are not present in Anchor Steam’s famed Liberty Ale.
