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".

Davhgbrew (938) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Awesome toasted nut and malt aroma. Amber color. Medium body, even though I thought alt beers were light bodied. Solid malt body and surprising bitter balance. Could easily pass for a west coast amber ale.

Bamsen78 (3107) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear tea amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with mild notes of flowers. Dusty, bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to estery and sparse fruity touches, ending on a dusty note with a sourish hint. An acceptable Altbier, but I have tasted better beers of this style.

trapped (756) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Small white foamy head amber color, very little doughy aroma, low carbonation, flat, slightly metallic taste, abrupt finish. Not remarkable.
