Despite exhibiting a low yield, Saaz (US) is a popular commercial aroma variety and is used in many US beers today. Bred from the original centuries-old Czech Saaz variety, it carries the same noble qualities but with some subtle differences. Its flavour and aroma profile is mild, earthy and spicy and its alpha is slightly higher than its Czech twin.
