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) - - 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

ElDesmadre (2138) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle. It has more body, residual sweetness, bitterness and hop aroma/flavour than a kolsch, so it cannot be really regarded as one. The Saphir hops provided it with some nice, crisp, citrusy and spicy notes. Good one.

Armadill0 (297) - FINLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Yellow, clear. Medium white head. Aroma has grain, little citrus and yeast. Taste has grain and a hint of citrus. Metallic aftertaste. If this was.watery, I couldn’t tell the difference from a bulk lager.

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
650ml bottle pours a golden yellow color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus with some mild grains. Taste is a spicy citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty brew for the style and nicely balanced as well.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. A light fruity smell of hops. The head is white, foamy and small with a normal duration. The body is pale yellow-orange. A bitter taste of hops, light fruity. The finish is long and bitter. The body is light to medium strong, dry and creamy with a lively carbonation.

pantumnuss (58) - POLAND - APR 30, 2015
Nice looking beer. Fresh flowery aroma. You can also smell out lemon, pineapple and grapefruit. For a golden ale is the bitterness to low and overcarbonated.
