Loral is a brand new hop release from the US, previously know as HBC291. Of noble heritage, it straddles the fence between old and new world hop aromatics. We felt the characteristics of this hop would be best showcased in a lager style. With a traditional malt base of German Pilsner malt, it leaves a clean malt cushion in the background, with a pleasant floral citrus and slightly herbal aroma, and a noble hop flavour and balanced clean bitter finish.
Inspired by our legendary single hop series One Trick Pony. The new hop Loral, we feel has potential to be used in lager style beers so we have formulated a lager version of One Trick Pony. Loral hop has a noble heritage, but brings together old and new world aromatics.
