Nice flavor, and a good all around hop for lighter beers. Is it as good as the German Saaz? I'm not sure because I like my beers when I use either one._x000D_Maybe the German is a tiny bit better.
I did a side by side experiment, splitting the wort into 2 kettles, one using US Saaz and one German._x000D_The German Saaz is better for lagers. The German Saaz has a better flavor, it was noticeable. So I wont try and save 50 cents an ounce, I'll pay the premium and get the German Saaz from now on.
Great hops for making a traditional light beer. This hops can help give that commercial light beer taste!
I use Saaz in addition with Hallertauer to make a great Semi-Light Beer. Go Saaz!
