5.0 / 5.026 ReviewssaazI like to use this in my pilsen and in my wheat. The low AA gives it a very versatile edge.November 23, 2013The hops of choice for PIlsnersI use the Czech version not the domestic one for my Pilsners. The right aroma and flavor, these are the real thing. They are better than teh domestic Saaz.December 8, 2013saazI like to use these hops in pilsners and Belgian ales. They have a nice clean flavor.January 10, 2014Noble hopGoes great in German lagers. I use it for both flavor and aroma. These Czech hops taste better than the US grown hops.January 23, 2014Delicate and mildIt 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.February 22, 2014Great finishing hopI have used this several times and bought an extra pack to have on hand for those impromptu recipesDecember 28, 2015Very good in a Pilsner UrquellThe aroma is mild, and the taste is herbal and slightly spicy._x000D_Adds little bittering, but good for aroma and taste.._x000D_I will try them in a Bohemian Pilsner next time.December 6, 2012Nicely SpicyThis is one of my favorite hops. I've used in several times, and am always happy with the spiciness it adds. The product information reccommends using it in lagers, but I've used it in ales and IPAs and have been really pleased!December 12, 2012great for the right beerExcellent traditional hop for a good continental lager. I've used these with great success for Schwartzbiers, Pilsners and bocks at times. Kind of herbal, kind of spicy but neither is overpowering. The AA% is pretty low so can be added for a minimal bittering addition but I like them as aroma and flavor additions. Kind of my go to for PilsnersDecember 21, 2012Better than the US grown SaazThere is a difference between the US grown Saaz and the European grown. The US Saaz are harsher, and it's noticeable. I'll pay the extra 50 cents to make 5 gallons of a better beer. I use them in Czech Pilsners, and they are well suited for that style.January 30, 2013
