Key Information

Leon beer is a top quality product that is brewed using the very high standards of raw material selection and processing as Carlsberg beer and conforms to the well known German purity law, the Reinheitsgebot. Three types of the highest quality malts are used for making Leon - barley, dark roasted barley and caramelised malts all blended according to the Leon recipe to provide a malty sweetness and body to the final product.

Leon is brewed using hops of the highest quality. Hops of the Tettanger variety are grown in the Tettnang region of Germany, a place known for its top quality hops. The variety belongs to the category of noble hops, a term that traditionally refers to four varieties of hops which are low in bitterness and high in aroma. Each one of them is named for a specific region or city in which they were first grown or primarily grown.

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.

There are 3 beers brewed on the island of Cyprus. This, in my humble opinion, is the best. (Of a bad bunch, I'd never drink lager in the U.K. There is so much choice or 'proper' beer!)
