Description: If you want to brew a true Bohemian Pilsner there’s no way you can do it without using Saaz hops. One of the four noble varieties, Saaz is native to Czech Republic and has been used in brewing for centuries. Its distinct earthy aroma is what makes most traditional Czech lagers so intriguing and refreshing.

Today Saaz is grown all over the globe, yet it’s the original Czech variety that everyone is after. With a very low alpha acid content, Saaz is virtually unusable as a bittering hop. Yet, it’s the aroma that makes this variety so special and irreplaceable when brewing genuine European Lagers and Pilsners.
