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.

omhper (23327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled at Bioshop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Before pouring it strikes me that the design label makes it feel branded (=commerical) and I get negative vibes from it. It pours clear bright golden with rich, exceptionally firm head and slight sediment. The aroma holds grainy malt, honey and a twist of lemon. Faint citric hops leads onwards to a salty finish. Dryness, clean malt character and spritzyness lends it an elegance, but it somehow feels artificial - like a make-up. Somehow this is like Russian champagne.
