Leon beer is back to remind us life’s true values of the past as well as to enjoy simple things in life.
LEON beer is a top quality product that is brewed using the very high standards of raw material selection and processing as Carlsberg beer. Two types of the highest quality malts (lager and dark roasted malt) are used for making LEON offering a distinguished malty character to the final product. Its light body along with the delicate fruity aroma and hop’s flavors makes LEON a refreshing and enjoyable beer.
LEON is brewed using German hops of the highest quality, providing a distinctive bitterness and hop’s notes.
A unique type of yeast is used that has been developed in co-operation with one of the best laboratories worldwide and involves the mixture of several type of yeast. The selected yeast is exclusively used for LEON and is the key factor for the development of a rich blend of esters which in turn give that extra fruity flavour and aroma to the beer.
Water on average makes up around 95% of beer and its quality is of utmost importance in producing any beer. At Photiades brewery, water is pumped in from well monitored sources including privately owned boreholes and through the use of latest technology equipment this is purified and softened.
Leon beer stood out among hundreds of other brands which were tasted by the International Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi) at Brussels on 2013 and 2016 by winning twice the Superior Taste Award.
All product trials are blind, and each product is judged for its premium quality focusing on the first impression, its appearance, its aroma, its texture etc.
Photos Photiades Breweries Ltd is very proud for this award because Leon is a 100% Cypriot product which combines high quality and rich taste.
