Sladek is named after the Czech word for brewer. It is characterised by high yields and widely appreciated for its balanced aroma profile and bitterness.
- Aroma Profile
Typical Aroma Profile
Sladek’s fruity flavour profile is characterised by citrus, grapefruit and green fruits. In addition, red berries, such as cassis, currant and strawberry, have a strong influence on the aroma formation. These are complemented by slight vegetal notes of dill. In the cold infusion, sweet fruit aromas, such as passion fruit and peach, add to the overall impression, while overtones of coffee complete the remarkable flavour spectrum.

*Alpha acids are determined by conductometric titration (EBC 7.4) in Europe, by spectrophotometry (ASBC Hops-6) in the USA. Oil composition is determined by gas chromatography (ASBC Hops-17, EBC 7.12).
All values represent the medium range of the last 4 years. Be aware that specifically the alpha and oil values can vary in a broad range depending on the relevant crop year.
