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.

massingasetta (330) - München, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2014
Somewhat unique Kölsch type beer that sure goes down well. Kölsch is somewhat monotonous in taste, yet as living in Munich I rarely get to drink it, it is very good. This is a great representative of Kölsch, though it is a craft beer.

No one really cares about contract-brewing and all that when it comes to German beers. They care about the styles, and whether they’re authentic. If they’re brewed in Germany, it doesn’t matter.
