Saaz hops is a low yielding but high quality, extremely popular hop around the world. It has been cloned a number of times to try to improve its yield. Originally, growers were hesitant to hybridize it because they feared it would lose some of its delicate aroma, but it became necessary in order to breed resistance to wilt and mildew. Saaz hops are said to be one of the 4 original Noble hops, and have a distinctive and classic aroma. Known for use in Czech, European, and Belgain Lagers and Pilsners, its herbal character stems from its high farnesene, while the other oils are in fair balance. Its low alpha acid content (3-6%) makes it a perfect aroma hop.
