We've purchased this hop in bulk and have lovingly vacuumed sealed it for you, to retain maximum flavour and aroma, PLUS bring you the best price. All our hops are kept refrigerated before you buy them.

Origin: Czech Republic. Named for the town of Zatec, Saaz is the major landrace variety of the hopyards of the Czech Republic and the quintessential noble hop. It accounts for over 80% of the total acreage in its home country.

Usage: Aroma. Indispensable for authentic Bohemian-style Pilsner, Saaz possesses a mild but distinctively spicy, pungent quality that is equally at home in other pale lager styles as well as Belgian and farmhouse ales.

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Soft, pleasantly spicy and herbal with vivid woodsy, earthy, and dark floral character. Idiosyncratically “hoppy” in pale worts. Rootstock grown elsewhere doesn’t have the same range or balance as Czech flowers.

 

The classic "noble" aroma hop with long and strong traditions, associated with the renowned pilsner lager.

Current alpha acid 3%.
