ronaldtheriot's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
ronaldtheriot (2006) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Hovels has a thick, fluffy, very light beige head and a mostly clear (but, with tiny floating specks throughout), copper-colored appearance, with some streaming bubbles and a fair amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet & sour sauce, faint grain, and a little sting in the nose. Taste is of brown bread (Roman Meal brand), molasses, lightly-toasted malt, and a shot of hop bitterness showing itself in mid sip. Also, a shade of paperiness is detected in the undertaste. Mouthfeel is mostly watery, and Hovels finishes refreshing, mild, and highly drinkable. This is a very good light beer. RJT

Аромат мне показался просто ужасным и отвратительным, натурально воняет носками. Цвет приятный, темно-янтарный. Пена очень быстро спала. Вкус солодовый, с легкой ноткой какой то непонятной мне карамелью. Действительно странно и необычно. Имеется легкая горчинка. В целом по вкусу пиво необычное, но не сказать что бы я хотел снова его купить.

Decent. Bitter. Little bit watery but not as much as other kolsch beers. Colour is brown, interesting. No such aroma. Lager characters.

Butelka 500ml. Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny, piana przy nalewaniu ładna, szybko opada lekkie ślady na szkle. Aromat słodów palonych, w smaku trochę kawy i słody palone, niezbyt wyszukane aromaty i smak, lekka goryczka, taki mocny średniak i tyle.

Recht langweiliges Bier welches gradlinig wenig geschmackliche Alleinstellungsmerkmale liefert. Kann man trinken, ist schnell und schmerzlos weg. Mehr aber auch nicht...

Pale brown and clear. Smells and tastes rather metallic. Fairly plain with light bitterness in the finish. Some malt and a touch of bread.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Danke an Veronika). Rotgold mit schöner weißer Schaumkrone im Glas. Allerdings nur ein durchschnittliches Alt.
