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.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, - 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

szeli (222) - GERMANY - MAR 11, 2016
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.
