Description

Old world and new world hop profiles collide in Loral® HBC 291. This versatile hop's noble heritage comes through in its floral and herbal character, which is backed up with the citrus and fruity aroma that many popular U.S. varietals are known for. It has enough alpha acids to be used as a bittering hop for just about any beer style. As a late boil addition, you can expect notes of lemon-citrus, dark fruit, and a slight, tea-like herbalness. In dry hopping, Loral® will impart a more pronounced fruity and floral character.

Nasty!
I had high hopes for this hop based upon an article in Beer & Brewing. I made a split batch: half lager, half Saison - the latter being much heavier hopped.

The flavor in the Saison was awful - so bad that had to dump a keg.

The lager was acceptable, but still had the nasty Loral flavor - just at a lower level.

Won't be using this hop again - you can do better!
