Hopfen: Saphir Malz: Pilsener, Karamellmalz With Colonia, BraufactuM brings traditional Rhenish bitters to life once more. The special hoppy aroma can be attributed to large hop additions in both the brew house and the storage tanks. For Whirlpool and dry hopping nly the rare Hallertauer Saphir hop is used. Mit Colonia lässt BraufactuM die Tradition der Rheinischen Bitterbiere wieder aufleben. Mit einer hohen Hopfengabe im Sudhaus, aber auch in den Lagertanks, wurde sowohl die höhere Bitternote als auch das ganz besondere Hopfenaroma erzeugt. Die seltene Hallertauer Hopfensorte "Saphir" verleiht diesem Bier seine besondere Aromatik.

Tolles Kölsch. Im Aroma fruchtig-hopfig, Zitrusfrüchte. Im Antrunk erst ziemlich süß, malzig. Sofort danach eine wunderbare Fruchtnote mit sehr viel Zitronengras und Ananas. Super! Der Nachtrunk ist weniger intensiv, aber dies passt gut zu einem Kölsch. Ich würde mir sehr wünschen, dass sich einige Kölschen Brauhäuser von so einem hopfigen Kölsch inspirieren lassen würden.

This is a light and easy drinking beer. It comes with a sweet and fruity taste best to be enjoyed in the summer at sundown.

hauxe (334) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2016
Pours golden from the bottle with a thin creamy head. Hoppy aroma that can be described as citric. Taste is of lightly bitter hops with fruity undertones and a sour bitter aftertaste. Light bodied with a slightly watery palate. Bitter beer brings to my mind the many English bitters I sampled over the years, but this is more like an IPA, but still not bad.

RichardGretton (4612) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly dry with lager like yeastiness. The flavour is mainly yeasty with a large degree of dryness and bitterness. Overall a reasonable beer more like a lager than a golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
