Hersbrucker Pure was bred at the Hull Hop Research Institute in the early 90's, but the project lost interest so this variety never had the chance to stardom. It can, however, be found on the market.
Hersbrucker Pure is an aroma hops with an alpha acid rating at 4.7%-6.0%. With Hallertauer Mittlefrueh and Saazar as its parents, it has similar qualities in its aroma attributes. It is most appropriate for late kettle additions or for dry hopping in homebrew and commercial beers.
