Argentinian Cascade Hops
Argentian Cascade is a hop variety that seems to have become popular lately due to the hop shortage. The first thing to know
about these is that they DO NOT have the same variety as the American grown Cascades you might be used to. Instead of the
citrusy, light flavors of the American Cascade, the Argentinian Cascade is more like a Noble hop (like Hallertau) with
a pleasant almost moderate aroma with a slight herbal, peppery, sweet grassy component almost like a spicy lemon grass.
The AA% is much lower than American Cascades - usually around 3 to 3.5%, making this a good choice for an aroma addition.
Typical style usage would be the same as something like Hallertau - Light lagers, Weisens of all types, Alts. I think they are prefectly at home in an American Wheat or Blonde style ale as well.
