Description

Traditional Czech Saaz hops are most commonly chosen for aromatic additions to Pilsners and Lagers, but also work well in Light Ales and Belgians. Though alpha acids are low, they are used for both bittering and an aroma of pleasant earthy, herbal and floral notes. You can finish just about any Lager recipe with this versatile hop. Even though it has a low alpha-acid content you will find many traditional recipes using this hop for both bittering and for flavor/aroma additions.

Are these CZ Saaz hop pellets imported or domestic? Are they 2017 Harvest?

GREAT HOP!
Used these hops in a saison and could not have been happier. Great aromatic addition without being overpowering which I feel enhanced the experience. Czech Saaz are now a favorite.

Default Noble Hops
I use Saaz in many European style beers from German Lagers to Belgian Blondes and Triples,

Cost point is great for 1lbs and the packaging is excellent with a zipper to keep freshness for leftovers between batches.
