Saaz Czech Hop Pellets 2 oz - 2020 Crop Year
Traditional Hop for German Beers
Great at adding preservative qualities to beer without adding too much bitterness. I like the subtle earthy qualities it contributes to flavor, excellent for wheat beers and Belgians! Try it out, it's an excellent traditional hop.
