    Lemon candy, indeed

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Aug 2019

    I ordered a 4oz packet of German Amarillo-Lemon Candy variant, and it came fresh, sealed well, and unharmed, as usual when I buy from Farmhouse Brewing Supply. I used 1oz at 15 mins and 3oz in the whirlpool for a pale weizenbock. Aroma was floral lemon candy, with the flavor being the same. It wasn’t punchy or intense like US Aroma clarities, but substantially more lemon-floral aroma than that certain other hop variety with “lemon” in the name. Has a slick mouthfeel, but not “resinous” by any means. No earthy or spicy notes like you get in German noble hops or German terrior, generally. I recommend this hop for pale ales, IPAs, pale lagers, weizenbiers, witbier, saison, Bière de Grade, wheat ales and kölsch. It could play well with noble hops as a lemony accent in continental lagers and ales, or as a lemony accent to punchier US/NZ/Australian varieties in pale ales and IPAs.
