here's a good reference table.

I have used both and prefer Saaz. Just my opinion though.

It's hard to explain the taste differences, but Pilsner Urquell uses Saaz, while Tettnang is used more for German-style lagers. Sam Adams Boston lager uses Tettnang and Hallertauer.

I believe Rogue Hefeweizen uses Saaz. I think they taste less "earthy" than the German hops, though that's not a great description.

Saaz has almost a "spicy" taste (in a good way, not peppery way) to the finish that tettnang does not. I love saaz hops!

i love beers i know have saaz in them, like pilsner urquell (duh) and i think wernesgruner. im mega excited to get back into some real brewing when i return to north america one day. currently relegated to brewing way inferior products even with some limited north american speciality grain imports

The Tetnang was another one I thought of using in my APA,but somebody bought all that up too from one week's LHBS visit to the next week's one. So I used US Perle & Czech Saaz. This combo actually turned out to be a good pairing. Smooth spice on the back,with a nondescript citrusy brightness on the back of the malt. Saaz is def one of my new favorites.
It's not just for lager anymore.
