3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that dad bought along this week having purchased from a bottle shop in Belper, consumed 10-04-08 Ligvht golden in colour with a bubbly white head. Some malt on the nose, even a bit corny and pilsner like? Soft carbonation in the mouth, some hops and nice soft maltiness, good bite to this its actually ok.

[500ml bottle from the Country Larder, Trentham, Staffordshire.] Straw colour, with no head, despite being bottle conditioned, and with light carbonation. Grainy, slightly spicy aroma. Some apricot fruit flavours then light spicy hops and a biscuit finish.

Bottle. Lively upon opening. Slightly cloudy with some bitterness. The explosion on opening didn’t help the initial impression which didn’t improve on drinking. Poor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (gravity) at the Derby CAMRA summer festival 2005. Billed as ’Leekenbrau’. Light gold, hop nose, fresh hoppy flavours, snappy finish. The sourness that others have found sounds like the all-too-familiar Leek bottling effect.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned from Open All Hours, Keswick. ’Leekenbrau’. Slightly cloudy yellow, sparkling. Something funky about the aroma with citrus hop. Sourness also in taste, not sure if its deliberate but its not unpleasant, just different. Finish hoppy and sour.

I had this as a bottle conditioned beer called Leekenbrau - a "golden beer" with the same alcohol % - assumed to be the same as Leek Lager. Golden in colour with a an off-white head. Aromas are hoppy, spicy with some fruitiness. Flavours are doft malts with hops and citrus yeast. Quite sour, perhaps due to bad bottling. Actually its not bad. Very Leek-like and if you drink the Leek bottled beers you know what I mean.

conditioned & from a hand pump in the Babington in Derby.
A light amber colour. Slightly hoppy. A reasonable beer but not great
