Tired of talking my friends into pit stops at beer bars before heading “out” - in fear of having to drink bland lager all night - I set out to craft an ale that would act as companion throughout the evening. Leon is assertively hopped and fermented dry using champagne yeast. The yeast and the hops in combination with a simple malt bill provides the beer with a quality of being rich in taste yet refreshing.

Toerstig (47) - Uppsala, - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy golden apricot color with a high white head that leaves som lacing behind. The aroma is fruity and yeasty with notes of apricot, caramel and some small hints of hay and banana. The taste is a little sweet with some citrusy notes, yeast, spicies and a dash of banana. Mild aftertaste with hints of american hops. Dry. In total a very drinkable session like blonde ale.

330ml bottle from Beerhive. Pours clear golden, big white head. Aromas of fresh grapefruit, lemon and grains. Taste is more of the same, bit gassy maybe, but nice.

jamestulloch (1718) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden bodt with a white, fluffy head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of salted lemon, hay, grass and white bread. Flavour of apricot, lemon sweets, orange peel and grapefruit. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Slightly too fizzy for my liking. This is a fresh-tasting, hoppy beer, which showcases the yeast really well.

Silvan7 (780) - Samarate, ITALY - FEB 19, 2015
On tap. Giallo dorato, opalescente, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente.aroma piuttosto intenso, fruttato, uva bianca, lievito, quasi vinosa, luppolatura aromatica complessa, sia agrumata che resinosa. Speziata, coriandolo. Gusto abboccato, decisamente amara per lo stile. Corposa, piuttosto carbonata, non molto rotonda. Equilibrata e armonica nel suo complesso.

guzgorog (385) - FRANCE - JAN 24, 2015
Blonde trouble, haute mousse blanche à cratère se tenant très bien. Nez de levures, pain, citron, agrume. Bouche assez fruitée sur les agrumes: citron, pamplemousse, Belle maertume, bonne carbo, longueur interessante. Bonne bière, très beau corps, manque quand même de complexité...

OldMrCrow (2032) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2015

Orange pour with a huge foamy off-white head. Intriguing nose of citrus and fruity esters and candy sugar and a bit of spice and old hops. Gently sweet flavor with a late hit of aged-barleywine hops. (This bottle isn’t the freshest). Tasty stuff, punching above its 6.5% weight. I bet it’s even better when the hops are fresh. +1 appearance for the awesome label.
