The Select was introduced in 1993. It was bred in the Hüll region of Germany as a replacement for Spalt with the aim of increasing production yields and disease resistance. From this point of view, it works well!
It is therefore a cross between the Spalt and the Hallertau Mittelfrüher and benefits from their respective characteristics. It is known to be slightly spicier than Spalt.
For those interested, it's a nice substitute for Saaz ; )
