Not overpowering and keeps the taste of the malt and caramel more profound.
I make a blonde ale using Pilsner malts, and this is the only hop I use, for both bittering and for taste/aroma. Used alone in this manner it has a very gentle and pleasant grapefruit flavor, but without the citrus bite you'd expect from grapefruit. Very mellow and flavorful, and provides a nice fruit-like finish.
I have used this several times and bought an extra pack to have on hand for those impromptu recipes
It added the perfect hop profile for my Bohemian Pilsner lager. It's earthy and not very bitter and good for adding mild, subtle floral aromas.
Goes great in German lagers. I use it for both flavor and aroma. These Czech hops taste better than the US grown hops.
