ThirstyBird (1506) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2014
From tap, pours a hazy yellow orange with a cream colored cap. The smell is fresh grain, mild malt sweetness, yeast. The taste is sweet and grainy malt, a bit of caramel, hay ending dry. Fine carbonation which is silky with light+ body. Enjoyable bit not particularly special.

Feines Ziwkckel mit einem fruchtigen Unterton. Grasig, etwas Hefe und Weizen. Trocken, nette Perlung, sehr sueffig. Klasse.

McTapps (3869) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours out in a light hazy golden colour with steady head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of fresh hops, wheat, nuts, straw and flowers. Crisp and refreshing finish. Really nice one.

Erzengel (2531) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 3, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Only slightly cloudy in the glass with a nice amber. Smooth in the beginning. Malty, smooth. Very smooth. Hints of yeast, hints of grain. Great combination. Smooth maltiness with a bitter-deep ending. Intense malty-smooth with a moderate bitterness, that becomes stronger till the end. A great beer! --> 13/13/13/13

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2013
#58 Säuerlich-hefiger Grundton, wird zunehmend malzig-fruchtiger (grüner Apfel), um dann angenehm nachzubittern. Gutes Zwickel!

Koelschtrinker (10000) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Getreidig-süßer Antrunk, wenig herb, süffig, im Mittelteil malziger. Die hintergründige Würzigkeit in Verbindung mit der Herbe ist angenehm, im Abgang hopfiger, die Herbe aus dem Mittelteil ist stärker. Ein Sommerbier. Test vom 12.5.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 11,9,8,9,-,9 - 9,05

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in Dortmund. Hazy golden pour with a whitish head. Decently bitter herbal aroma. Flavor doesn’t quite match it - yeasty, fruity, mildly bitter, but tastes somewhat watery. Mouthfeel is thin. The regular Hoevels is better, but this is alright.
