COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ist nun ein Bau vorbei, da gibts n Schmauserei
gut zu essen, viel zu trinken,
gebratne Wurst und Schinken,
viel Bier noch hintendrein,
da ist gut Steinmetz sein.

So heit es in einem alten Steinmetzlied. Dieses Handwerk kann im Mhlviertel auf eine lange Tradition verweisen. Auch wurde ein eigener Granitlehrpfad eingerichtet und natrlich ein entsprechendes Bier gebraut. Ein Bier wie es frher eines Steinmetz wrdig war, krftigund dunkel.

Schon die Farbe verrt, hier steht ein besonderes Bier. Das Hofstettner Granitbier - bernstein schimmernd weckt es die Neugierde und will verkostet werden.

Schon im Antrunk erffnen sich leichte Caramelnoten, die aus dunklen Malzen stammen. Die Mischung machts, in diesem Bier verbinden sich Rstaromen tiefbrauner Malze mit der Harmonie von hellem Malz. Die Hopfennote darf hier nur untersttzend sein und so schillert ein Hauch von Blumigkeit mit hinein in das Geschmackserlebnis.

Der Name Granit erinnert an die geologische Wurzel des Mhlviertels. Der Granitstein wirkt wie ein Filter auf das Wasser, welches dadurch zu einer globalen Besonderheit wird, die nur Mhlviertler Bieren zugrunde liegt.

yngwie (16603) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. A lightly unclear, golden beer with a dense, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is a bit too much on the hayish, grainy and grassy side, but theres some pleasant peppery hop notes and a little caramel hint. Quite dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated. Pale malts, caramel, some bitterness and a little grassy hint as well. Lasting finish. A drinkable one, but not very interesting. 131026
