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".

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.

Davhgbrew (942) - 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.
