COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dieses unfiltrierte, naturtrübe Pilsbier ist das wohl bekannteste Bier der Brauerei Hofstetten. Süffig und untergärig war dieses Vollbier schon vor 500 Jahren ein Geheimtipp der Mühlviertler Brauer, die sich zur Jause einen Kübel direkt vom Fass zapften. Da Hefe und Eiweiß - Eiweiß einer der Hauptgeschmacksträger jeden Bieres - nicht ausfiltriert werden, behält das Kübelbier seine natürliche Trübung und seinen harmonischen und runden Geschmack. Auch der mühlviertler Hopfen kommt in diesem Bier voll zur Geltung, da bei der Filtration normalerweise Hopfenaromastoffe verloren gehen, die in diesem Fall dem Bier eine kräftige aber angenehme Hopfennote verleiht.

Golden pour, small bubbly head. Some fruity and malty notes but overall very light in flavor. High drinkability.

4 stinkers in a row - hopefully it won’t continue. Holy shit is game 3 boooooring. Poured out a slightly hazy gold beer with a off white cap. Surprising orange notes hang around a static glass but not as much on deeper whiffs. Some other fruit, soft malts, maybe a touch of grain... maybe. Nice. Nice and mellow. Maybe pear as well. Decent taste with minor complexity spots. Slight bitterness on the back end adds interest, having a very hard time finding defined flavours here. I’m enjoying the ease of drinking this yet discovering that there was nothing really going on in my glass. Slammed. Done. Enjoyed. No idea what happened.

reebtogi (4808) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy with some hints of citrus and yeast. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a lemony bitterness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A decent brew for the style.
