COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Travlr (24004) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2015 Bottle courtesy of Tammy Tuck, thank you ma’am! I have to caveat this rating by saying the bottle was about 18 months old, so not quite yet into the "terrible twos." Clear golden color, white head. Nice fruity aroma. Taste starts with a bit of fruit, then a bitter finish. Plain. Second bottle, brought back from from Berlin by a State Department colleague, thanks! Aroma has subtle white pepper and straw. Taste is subtle bitter straw. Flavor, aroma slightly different but numerically the same.

fiulijn (20298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2011
Bottle from Galeria Kaufhof, Köln
5.1% ABV on the front label, 5.5% ABV on the back label

Yellow color, with a straw hue. The aroma is mild, with mainly an herbaceous character, with a very light lemony touch; not enough to be interesting. The mouthfeel is dry and smooth, and the body is not too weak; there is a moderate malt and cereals flavor, with a light chamomile touch, and a quite strong bitterness.
As it’s difficult to make an interesting Kölsch, this one is not alone among the boring ones.
