Czech Sladek (meaning “beer brewer”) is a high yielding, Saaz-type aroma hop. Always used as a second hop, although sometimes as a third for a non-premium beer, while Saaz is more likely the third in a premium. It has a lower alpha and higher beta profile which makes its bittering really fine. It has a fruity flavor profile with essences of peach, passion fruit, and grapefruit. Its character is very different from Czech Premiant, and it is said that most brewers strictly favor either Sladek or Premiant.
