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".

A brown beer. Huh, you don’t see many beers that are actually brown. Creamy beige head, lots of carbonation.Nice gradual build up of bitterness to quite a solid finish. Pretty basic well made beer.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2005
A dark amber beer with a small disappearing light brown head. The aroma is very sweet and very malty besides notes of caramel, brewmash, straw, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel as well as hints of roasted malt and hops. The end is bitter and dry.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2005
Ruby-brown German ale brewed to a traditional recipe. Pours with an invitingly big, creamy head but is let down by a thin barely-there aroma (sample may have been over-chilled). Hint of plum and some malt. Sweetish and malty on the front of the palate, giving way to a pleasantly hoppy, dry finish. A smooth, easy quaffer but unremarkable.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2005
Very malty aroma and initially a quite sweet malty taste, which I like. Then there is a lot of roasted bitterness and it is a bit woody. It seems to be a little like the bottled English Ales we get in Australia.
