Aroma: Very mild, with pleasant earthy, herbal and floral overtones.
Description: Saaz is the true embodiment of the Czech brewing tradition. Known to be in use for over 700 years, this noble variety has defined the traditional European beer styles and remains to be one of the most widely used hops to this day.

Saaz is purely an aroma hop that delivers an intriguing mix of spicy and earthy nuances that make Bohemian Pilsners so enjoyable. Though it has also been used for bittering back in the day, its negligible alpha acid content renders Saaz virtually unusable for early kettle additions in the modern world of high-alpha variety abundance.

But it’s the aroma that makes so Saaz special, and it’s definitely something you should always have around when brewing a Pilsner, Helles, Altbier or Heffeweizen.
