COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

WillemsUrenkel (592) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
0,355 l bottle. Pale yellow golden with a big white head in that typical tall Kölsch glass. Sourish hop herb on the nose. Starts with hop and citrus. Malt hints in the background. Long lasting fresh hopy bitterness. A different but interesting version of a Kölsch. Like it!

(Flasche) Es hat eine zitronengelbe Farbe, ist filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig, schwarze Johannisbeere, zitrus,vllt Mandarine, und einer würzigen Hopfennote. Der Geschmack ist schlank, schmeckt etwas nach Brennnessel, ist spritzig und kaum bitter. Retronasal ist es eher harzig grün.

Pours clear pale golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is grainy and a bit malty, some faint yeast notes with subtle fruits. Flavor is somewhat bitter with fruits and grain, mild toffee and grass on the finish. Strong carbonation, grainy slick palate. Very clean and solid Kölsch.
