Nice light flavor and aroma
Not overpowering and keeps the taste of the malt and caramel more profound.

One of my favorite hops, for specific use
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.

Great finishing hop
I have used this several times and bought an extra pack to have on hand for those impromptu recipes

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.

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.

I like to use these hops in pilsners and Belgian ales. They have a nice clean flavor.

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.

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

Superb aroma and taste
Saaz go great in any kind of lager I brew. They have a nice herbal and spicey flavor and aroma.

Pilsner Urquell is the showcase for this
I really like these hops in a Bohemian Pilsner. The aroma is mild, and the taste is herbal and slightly spicy. It only adds a tiny bit of bittering, so it's really for aroma and taste.
