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.

No one really cares about contract-brewing and all that when it comes to German beers. They care about the styles, and whether they’re authentic. If they’re brewed in Germany, it doesn’t matter.

jamaty (1160) - 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 (1046) - 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.

ElDesmadre (2218) - 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.
