HISTORY: 

Bred in New Zealand, triploid aroma hop Pacifica, or Pacific Hallertau as it is sometimes known, is the result of open pollination breeding of German hop Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. The hop was released by HortResearch, New Zealand following promising brewing trials in 1994.

Like Hallertauer Mittelfrüher, Pacifica is mostly known for its aromatic properties. It features moderately low cohumulone and higher carophyllene, which give it a spicy and decidedly floral aroma. Citrus notes are also evident and it is said to impart aromas of orange when used late in the boil.

NOTES:
Festbier is the beer actually served at Munich’s Oktoberfest since the 1990's. Festbier is related to Oktoberfest beer but is definitely a distinct style. It’s a slightly stronger, slightly hoppier pale lager with a clear Pilsner malt biscuit flavour, with some extra body and toasted malt flavors in support.
