Here Mike uses again approximately 2/3 2-row pale malts with the remaining malts a combination of Munich, Vienna, and Caramel malts. Slickrock is hopped with both Chinook and Perle hops for bittering as well as with Willamette and a healthy dose of Czechoslovakian Saaz hops for aroma. This pale, crisp, clean lager is fermented with a German Lager yeast for 45 days before being bottled.
Immediately note a hoppy, floral and spicy nose with some malt characteristics underneath in this pale, clear lager. Slickrock is a medium-bodied lager with excellent head retention. Look for a sweet flavor up front with strong pale malt character. Also note that it is clean and smooth in the middle as well as the finish with a relatively pronounced hop bitter finish providing a perfect malt/hop balance. We found a pleasant lingering bitterness. Overall, a flavorful lager that does not compare to it's lighter, 3.2 sister version.
