Stilbeschreibung: Dieses obergäriges Bitterbier wurde nach "Rheinischer Brauart" hergestellt. Es weist traditionell angenehme, durch die Kalthopfung hervorgerufene Hopfenaromen auf und hat eine ausgewogene Bitternote. Besonderheiten: 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. Zur Hopfung wird ausschließlich die seltene Hallertauer Hopfensorte "Saphir" verwendet. Verkostungsnotiz: Intensive goldgelbe Farbe, starke Schaumbildung. Sehr frischer Duft mit floralen Noten und Honig. Trocken im Geschmack, leichtes Mousseux. Präsentiert sich vielschichtig: Anklänge von Ananas, Zitrusaromen und Mango werden von deutlichen Bitternoten unterlegt, die in eine cremige Textur gekleidet sind. Die Länge wird von Herbheit getragen.

Hugi (352) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2013
Yellow and clear. Medium head with a nice lacing. Smell was hoppy, a bit of pineapple, a bit of citrus. The taste was malty, fresh and fruty. Medium body and refreshing. A nice Kölsch - not as boring as many "standart"-Kölsch.

One of a selection of 38German beers I have been gifted by a friend from Germany. Chose this first because of the initial impression of a nicely presented beer bottle. I can’t define the aroma for this beer, it was not unpleasant by any means, very much like a Belgian Blond. Appearance wise, qite yellowy rather than golden, slightly unappealing hue to be brutallly honest - possibly choice of glass was detrimental - no head. Taste and Palate - I’d say it was citrusy, label hinted at banana but I couldn’t detect that - the taste overcomes the appearance, it left me wanting more. A very pleasant beer

Plovmand (6348) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is hay, exotic fruit like lime and mango and straw. The flavor has a clean malty feel with light exotic fruity notes. Light pineapple and mango. I drink lots of this!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
