|Flavor and Aroma||Mild, Floral, Spicy|
This American hop is the result of breeding German Hallertau Mittelfruh hops with a USDA male and released in 1991. Best utilized as an aroma hop, Liberty imparts a spicy, citrus lemon scent and flavor into just about any Lager.
Liberty tends to work well in Pilsner, Bock, and Kolsch styles due to its German roots. With an alpha acid content of just 3% to 5%, Liberty is rarely used as a bittering hop. Easy substitutions for Liberty hops include Hallertau Mittelfruh and Mt. Hood, which offer similar levels of aroma and bittering.
