ZUPER SAAZER – A Michigan take on a classic variety
The classic Noble variety Saaz is know for earthy, herbal, spice and pleasant earthy aromas. Traditional Saaz is very low in Alpha Acids and primarily used as an aroma hop. However, brewers can also obtain a delicate bitterness when adding Saaz as an early addition. Dating back over 700 year to the City of Zatec, brewers have been using Czech Saaz primarily for Czech Pilsners.
