Czech Premiant is moderately bittering with a low cohumulone ratio, making it the perfect neutral bittering agent, especially for Pilsners. It is a Saaz-derived hop that would have made the Gauls proud since it’s nearly a requirement for Belgian Pilsners, and is great in Belgian, French, and German Ales, as well as a whole host of other beer and ale varieties. It is said that breweries seem to have a strong preference for either Premiant (which, by the way, means prized or prizewinning) or Sladek, both which have very different qualities.
