In my LHBS there are no fresh german hops from 2008 harvest, only the 2007 Hallertau with lousy 2.2% a-a. The only fresh hop available is Saaz.

What do you think is better to use to beer like german pils or dortmunder: old Hallertau of fresh Saaz? Maybe Saaz for bittering, Hallertau for aroma?

Don't waste either on bittering. Bitter with Northern Brewer or Perle, finish with the low-alpha noble varieties.

And +1 to fresh Saaz. Yummy!
