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".

KansaiBeerLvrs (1592) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
I dropped by Liquor Mountain yesterday and saw this new beer for only 198 yen. I decided to give it a try. Quite drinkable & at a great price. I thought it was a nice enough ale, it had a bit of an aftertaste but went down smoothly and had a nice balance.

Cuso (4223) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from trade with McTapps, many thanks Sabine. Amber colored beer with medium off-white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Taste, solid malty base with caramel, bitter hops, some fruitiness. Good, went nicely with grilled sausages.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 5, 2013
On tap at Epcot Center Germany. Poured an amber color with a nice creamy white head. Moderate aromas of bready malts with some notes of caramel sweetness as well as some fruity yeasts. Flavor of caramel and bready malt, finishes with light grassy hops and a long hop and malt aftertaste. Starts slightly sweet and finishes slightly dry. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and relatively smooth.

Deep amber with loads of carbonation. Bready taste with bitter aftertaste. Better than I expected. Goes down easy and is very quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Watery cola looking pour with a small frothy white head. Dusty earthy and caramel malt. Fairly sweet. A bit of hop edge to round it out. Not terrible, but not my favorite style.

Moebbels (270) - FINLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Clear amber body and large white head. Nose has herbs, hops and dark malts. Taste is bittersweet with a mix of syrupy sweetness and a dry woody aftertaste. Carbonation is mild and suits this well.
