Saaz is a Czech landrace that contributes significantly to the flavour profile of traditional Czech Pilseners. It is well-known for its mild, noble aroma. Specific aroma descriptors include earthy, herbal and floral overtones.
Our Saaz hops are sourced from the Czech Republic; American-grown Saaz tends to have a harsher flavour.
