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".

Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2007
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with short, off-white head, leaving some lacing. Malty, slightly roasted nose with notes of toffee and chocolate. Malty, roasted nose with toffee, caramel, fudge and slight notes of hops in the rather short finish. Fairly dry. Carbonation making it slightly prickly. Definitely not a very bitter beer, but balanced with a rather nice taste.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Quite dry and bitter, yet tasty. Nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. I was happy to find a local ale from NRW Germany. I can’t see a reason not to have more of these.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2006
(draught at the Hövels brewpub, 5.0 % ABV) Clear and slightly dark amber colour with a firm off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet malty aroma with caramel and light fruity notes plus traces of hops. Rather sweet than bitter flavour, medium to light bodied. Caramel-malty taste with dense fruity tones, moderately bitter, dry and hoppy finish. Not overwhelming but quaffable (03.05.06).

Nice amber ale, with fruity notes and pleasant dry finish. Some slight hops notes in the background. I liked it, it wasn’t heavy at all.

Stefano (1874) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Caramel and tea aroma. Initial clean, smooth, slightly fat mouthfeel with candy malt coming through, then a warm bitterness. OK - decent quality - the real interest being the warm bitterness in the finish. Overall, a decent beer but nothing spectaular.
