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".

roasted malts and floral noble hops with a soft but effervescent body. balanced but malt forward. a nice session beer that falls between a maibock and a marzen, and greatly compliments german food.

Amazing beer with truly unique qualities. Caramel flavor, with floral and honey aromas. One of my all time favorites.

Hanuta06 (321) - Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling, orange body. Taste: light to moderately bitter, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft to lively carbonation. Overall: one of my favorite beers. It’s thirst-quenching, has enough hops to keep it interesting, but is also not overly bitter.

Great beer with a bitter taste. Really one of my favorites. The red appearance and the foam makes it nice to look at.

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.

mcdav2154 (448) - GERMANY - OCT 5, 2009
Reddish brown body with a really thick cream colored head. Great lacing. Smell is roasted malt, nuts, and copper. Taste is different than other dunkelweizens I’ve had. Very nice bitterness that has notes of roasted malt, butter, and maybe walnuts/pecans. Medium carbonation. Full bodied. Top notch in my book. Smooth and fun to drink!

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear copper, medium off-white head. Nutty, caramelly aroma with fresh herbal hops. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness. A great altbier.

Beautiful bottle, nice amber color malty and hoparoma’s in smell, taste, and palate. Very nice bitter finish.
