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.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle, 35.5cl, 5.5% abv) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Citric and flowery hoppy aroma with mildly spicy herbal accents and a delicately buttery malty touch. Slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, crispy on the tongue. Initially pale malty with a dusty touch and a rising hops character from the middle part, including citric, floral and mildly herbal notes; dry and moderately bitter finish with an aromatic hoppy tail. 29.VI.13

Disig lys gyllen kropp med et høyt hvitt skumdekke som henger igjen på glassveggen. Tørt gress, urter og litt sitrus i nesa. Myk tekstur og medium kropp med en gressaktig bitterhet. Behagelig å drikke.

McSherman (245) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2015
Im Antrunk vermutet man ein gewöhnliches Kölsch, doch dann entwickelt sich der aromatische Hopfen, der diesem Bier einen einzigartigen Charakter verleiht. Fruchtige Aromen dominieren und werden von einer angenehmen und langanhaltenden Bitterkeit abgelöst. So könnte ich fast zum Kölsch-Liebhaber werden... Lecker!

pivo (2617) - GERMANY - FEB 17, 2015
Slight sulfur nose with some grains. Pee yellow color. Thin body with just a hint of hops but weak. Soft palate. Decent balance and not a bad beer but there’s really nothing special at all.

Very light yellow fuzzy beer with a soft head on top. Nice hoppy grain citrusy nose. Light citrus grassy taste, a nice light brew and it is what it is.
