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.

Tried on tap. Colour is light hazy yellow/gold. Aroma is yeasty, biscuits, pale malts and slight fruits. Taste is sweet malts, minimal fruit with a nice hops bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
