    remembering my last trip to Switzerland had me thinking a lot about a munich dunkel brewed by a good friend there. awesome maltyness, flavor/aroma! he said it was a just a basic dunkel with traditional hallertauer bittering hops and Strisselspalt for flavoring and dry hopping. i had never heard of this french hop. back home was surprised reading that Anheuser-Busch, is one of the leading buyers of it and use it in their amberbock dark lager! also surprised to discover i actually like this beer! a bit thin but very drinkable imo, thin can always be fixed via cloning! shocked at the amount of styles done with Strisselspalt, guess I'll be adding to future recipes! anyone else like/use this hop?

    It's been a while, but it's basically a Noble hop. It could be used as a replacement for Hallertau or German Tradition.
