    Czech Kazbek

    Kazbek offers the classic noble spice of Saaz combined with earthy, lemon peel overtones.
    SKU: HKAZ0044

    Breeding/Development: Czech Republic. Named for one of the highest peaks in the Caucasus Mountains, Kazbek’s parents are Saaz and a wild landrace from the Caucasus. It was first released in 2008, and each year since has seen increasing acreage devoted in its home country. 

    Brewing Application: Primarily aroma and flavor - Czech brewers favor it for late additions. Recommended as a finishing or dry hop for craft lagers, or anywhere a noble hop character with a higher intensity and oil content may be desired.

    Sensory: Similar to Saaz, but turned up to 11. It can show a dominant bright citrus note of lemon or grapefruit, but never obscures the quintessential mixture of floral and earthy spice of its Saaz parent.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus 

    Maturity: late 

    Yield: 2100-3000 kg/ha
