SAAZ: Saaz hops are one of the NOBLE HOPS from Czechloslovakia and are the Quintessential Czech pilsner hop. It was named after the Czech city of Žatec (German: Saaz). Saaz has a very distinctive flavor. When used in beer, the resultant aroma is very mild, earthy, herbal and spicy. Despite its popularity and noble pedigree, Saaz generally has a very low Alpha Acid level and is not very effective as a bittering hop. This hop is generally used for Bohemian style lagers and pilseners.
IMPORTED FROM Czechoslovakia! This hop is a little different than the less expensive US variety. Spend 25 cents a pack more and get the true noble hop for your lagers!
