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".

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2014
This was 0kay, but pr0bably w0uld have been much better had it n0t traveled t0 Chicag0 in a green b0ttle. It had a light orange b0dy with a t0uch 0f brown, a creamy head, and sheets 0f slippery lace. The ar0ma was "beery," with dark wheat bread and a hit f s0lid earth. The flav0r was much the same, adding a bit 0f sweetness and having a grassy/earthy finish. 0kay.

on tap @ schiffergesellschaft lübeck. Schiuma beige, fine abbastanza persistente. Birra ramata limpida.Aroma fruttato, mela matura, uva bianca, caramello, vino dozzinale. Gusto dolce abboccato. Lieve punta acida poco amara. Fruttata, con sottofondo di caramello. Abbastanza rotonda, poco corposa decisamente carbonara. Equilibrata, forse un filo troppo dolce. Armonica.
