COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein Bier wie kein anderes. Als eigenständige Kreation Dortmunder Braukunst lässt sich Hövels Original in keine der gängigen Bierkategorien einordnen:
Es ist kein Pils, kein Alt und auch kein Schwarzbier. HÖVELS ist HÖVELS - eine obergärige, rotgoldene Bierspezialität mit einzigartigem Charakter. Gebraut aus 4 Edelmalzen und bestem Hopfen nach Original Maischverfahren von 1893.

Formerly known as "Hövels Original Bitterbier". Nowadays sold Germany-wide with the additive "Feinherbes Rotgold".

Countbeer (4425) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized off white foamy head on top of a clear amber colored beer. Aromas of malts, some iron, grain and oat tints, some sweet malts... Flavour is malty, bitter, sweaty, some caramel and some herbs... Meh... Aftertaste is strange bitter and malty with a herbal edge. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium unbalanced body and a light creamy texture. Quite unbalanced with a strange bitterness.

Foffern (1225) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2014
On tap at pub in Berlin. Has a clear amber colour with a medium, light beige head. Light aroma of leather, caramel, sweet malt and some cinnamon. The flavour is slightly fruity with more caramel, wood, raisins and some alcohol. Slick mouth feel, and the bitterness is light. An okay ale but rather light and boring.
