Description

Helga is an extremely versatile hop that is very easy to work with. It can be used at any point in the brewing process adding a mildly floral and spicy aroma to your beer.  Helga actually is a descendent from Hallertauer so she has European lager heritage but started gaining in popularity with craft brewers in ale styles.

This hop should be renamed as Helga does not inspire brewers to use it. With its heritage, I find this hop is a great change for recipes that call for Goldings variants. I put Helga in small Belgian beers, English Browns, Milds and even Bitters. It has a woody, earhy, herbal quality that makes browns taste like toasted bread and tea. A great hop that is suffering due to the 'citrus hops only' craze.
