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".

oh6gdx (25462) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is wood, bread, some slight grassyness as well as wet-earthcelllar-like-stuff. Flavour is caramel malts, some sweet wood and mild notes of salt water. A quite nice, refreshing and wellbalanced brew. Hard to tell an exact style for this.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, amber coloured beer with a fine head. A bit sweetish malt on a solid body. If the name make you expect a bitter beer, you’ll be surprised as this has no more bitterness than your average German pilsener. Has some wheat malt thrown in also. Style wise this is very unusual for Germany. 090300
