I like to use this in my pilsen and in my wheat. The low AA gives it a very versatile edge.

The hops of choice for PIlsners
I 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.

Noble hop
Goes great in German lagers. I use it for both flavor and aroma. These Czech hops taste better than the US grown hops.

Delicate and mild
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.

Very good in a Pilsner Urquell
The 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.

Nicely Spicy
This 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!

great for the right beer
Excellent 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 Pilsners

Better than the US grown Saaz
There 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.
