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.

McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, - FEB 1, 2013
Clear golden in colour with steady head and smooth body. The aroma is just pure IPAish, means nose of spicy hops. Taste of coriander, pepper, hops, low malt, grass and cardamon. Maybe little bit thinner than expected. Good and solid beer, definately worth its money.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 28, 2015
Amarillo oscura, de espuma normal. El aroma tira a lupulado, bastante herbal y toques florales. En boca, ligera y bien de gas, sabrosa y refrescante, con sabor donde combinan bien malta acaramelada y lupulos herbales, en un tono general seco y de buen postgusto, algo cítrico. Buena ale.

AgentAle (1072) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Aroma is light sweet malts with slight clove, citrus, and caramel. Taste is a blend of smooth sweet malts and a light and somewhat bland hop profile. Finishes with slight tanin and clove. Appearance is a clear straw with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
