Hybrid aroma variety of Saaz type with excellent impact on hoppy taste and aroma of beer.
Late variety. High yield. Average alpha acids content 5,0 %.
In form of hop pellets type 90 or 45 is used for second, sometimes also for third hopping of beer. Its application for the middle hopping during the brewing process is given by higher alpha acid content of this aroma hops. With alpha acid content of 5 - 6 % it is appropriate to use the bittering potential and for this reason it is recommendable to use this hops at least 20 minutes before the end of the brewing process. The final taste and aroma is typically hoppy. The variety Sladek contains genetically 30% of Saaz hops. The brewing tests have shown that Sladek is not fully able to replace Saaz hops. However both of these varieties complement each other in the production of high quality lager beers.
