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.

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.

imdownthepub (13720) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottled, 355ml from BeerMerchants of Kent. Clouded orange gold with white head. This seemed a little flat on opening, there is a light herby note on first sip, fruity but with a slightly acidic lemon note. Nothing really to get excited about here but its okay in the end.

DuffMan (9756) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle. Slightly hazy pale golden, with a frothy white head. Pleasant delicate floral/fruity character with clean, crackery pale malts and mild-moderate bitterness. Very pleasant.

Jamedra (750) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 26, 2016
Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je příjemně svěží s lehkým nádechem okurek a citrusů. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je jasně žlutá. Chuť je zajímavá, připomínající zvláštní ovoce, které nedokáži blíže specifikovat. Vzdáleně připomíná citrón a má lehké sladové tělo, finiš je výrazně, suše hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je vcelku dobře pitelné a svěží. Jedná se o zajímavé, unikátnější pivo, které se tak často nevidí.

DrNosha (1910) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
0,355l Flasche. Sanft trübes Bier, weisser Schaum. Frischer Hopfenduft. Fruchtig hopfiger Antrunk. Gras und Kräuter. Sanft bitterer Abgang. Rund aber auch recht glatt.

Tjeerd (409) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Hazy, pale beer with sapphir hop but nevertheless little aroma. Taste is more bitter than fresh. Aftertaste is sharpish. Not really my thing.

Grzesiek79 (4137) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Fajne piwo, jak na nie mój ulubiony styl to kolońskie wypada dobrze. Z aromatem jest fajnie, piana trwala i spora. Barwa jasna zlota. Smak pszenicy jak na Kolscha wyraźny, siano i sloma w zapachu. Ciekawe i sporo treściwsze w smaku niż niektóre orginaly prosto z Koln.

Iznogud (3075) - CROATIA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml, courtesy of and shared with JFK10000. Clear golden, short lasting white head. Malty, some citrus hoppy notes, but so light bodied that it feels like a free falling down the chasm. Starts ok, but takes a wrong turn somewhere along the way.

Blairgus (4345) - California, USA - JUL 16, 2016
16 July 2016, tap. Light yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is sweet lemon and straw. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Lemon candy, some butter dried grass, and straw. Decent.
