Brewer Description: (from website) 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.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th June 2016 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a golden copper colour with very light haziness. Aggressive pour left a huge three finger yellowish head that had very good retention leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Mainly citrus lemon accompanied by apple, pine and some pepperness.
Taste: Apple juice and lemon zest with hints of grapefruit, orange and pepper.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium to light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This was a decent Belgian pale ale and although not the best from Omnipollo, I can’t wait to try more of their stuff.
