About Beer » Hops » Saaz
NameSaaz
CountryCzech Republic
Bittering
Finishing
Aroma
Alpha Acid3-5
Named after the czech city of Saaz (in the Czech Republic). Saaz hops accounted for more than half of total hop production in the Czech Republic. Noble hop used extensively in Bohemia to flavor pale Czech lagers such as Pilsner Urquell. Cinnamon-spicy, earthy. Substitutes: Tettnanger, Ultra, Crystal.
Saaz has a very distinctive flavour. When used in beer, the resultant aroma is very mild, earthy, herbal and spicy. Despite its popularity and noble pedigree, Saaz generally has a very low Alpha Acid level and is not very effective as a bittering hop. This hop is generally used for Bohemian style lagers and Pilseners.
