Durchschnittliche Schaumentwicklung mit eher etwas gröberer Konsistenz, aber angemessener Haltbarkeit. Farblich hat das Bier einen ansehnlichen Kupferton. Zudem ist es klar. Riecht malzig, vollmundig, nach Nüssen und Kastanien. Geschmacklich röstig-malzig, nach Kastanien, etwas karamellig. Die Intensität ist durchschnittlich, die Vollmundigkeit recht hoch. Ganz ordentlich.

33cl. bottle. Appeance a caramel coppery body, with a offwhite head on top. Aroma: walnuts, cacao, korn, Taste: Thin caramel malts, nuts, metallic tones and cacao. Not too sweet. thin body, below average carbonation. Not a Benelux style sweet bock, but more a bit like a friendly waterdowned alt bier. Drinkable, but not really good an overmarketed.

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey, dark golden to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Plain, bitter hoppy aroma, grainy and strawy as a Pilsener from the 70s, weak caramel malty masis, very cautious fruity hoppy overtones with jelly bear touch. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, plain bitter and minimally fruity hoppy, a touch of jelly bear; monotonous, simple, almost watery.

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.

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
Reasonable, follows the trend of brewing all sorts of Ales beyond the brewery’s home turf. I do like the trend of expanding the range of available beers, but this one does not live up to the expectation that the good name Hövels implies.

Hövels Dortmunder Zwickelbier
On tap at Hövels Hausbrauerei, Dortmund. Comes with a hazy, dark geldeon color and a very nice white head. Very picturesque. Nose is sweet malts, grains, a little grass and some citric notes. Taste is sweet malty, caramel, some lemon and some yeasty flavours. As it gets warm, the finish gets sweeter.

Bottle [thanks to RW80] @ home. Clear golden color, average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, light to moderately hoppy, a hint of sweetish citrus there but I can’t quite put my finger on to what it is. Average to decent body, soft carbonation. Ok.

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

Bottle, courtesy of Koelschtrinker. Pours clear light brown. Aroma is strongly malty, bocky, caramel, toasted malts. Body is medium to heavy, both sweet and bitter throughout, with a decently warming sweet palate. Not sure what makes this one craft. Nothing special about this, neither in flavours, taste nor balance.

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
Bottle, courtesy of Koelschtrinker. Pours almost clear amber. Aroma is citric, lightly floral, but also quite malty. Body is light and refreshing, softly sweet and bitter, with a lively carbonation overtoning citric flavours. Malty but corny off sweetness. Medium palate, rather a bit too heavy for an otherwise light-ish beer. Okay.

Slightly sweetish, grassy-spicy and a little fruity aroma of straw, some grains and a touch of citrus. Slightly sweetish, moderately bitter, rather grassy-spicy and slightly fruity taste of lots of straw, grains, some bread and a touch of citrus, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy-spicy and minimally metallic finish. Medium-bodied, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Well done!

Aroma: esters, iron, weak herbal notes. Appearance: golden color and white head. Taste: low bitterness, iron, esters, weak hoppy notes, dry. Palate: low body and high carbonation. Overall: rather poor hoppy pale ale, iron destroys everything.

Wenkers Dortmunder Maibock
0.33 l draught @ Wenkers am Markt, Dortmund, April 23, 2017. Appearance is similar to Wenkers Urtrüp, i.e. amber, cloudy and a small head. This is a stronger version of the house ale. It is still nicely balanced - you don’t get too much ABV. Still, it is on the sweet side. Reminds me somewhat of Finnish sahti.

Wenkers Urtrüb
0.5 draught @ Wenkers am Markt, Dortmund, April 23, 2017. Appearance is cloudy, amber and with small head. Does not look like your average German beer. Taste is very fruity, but still balanced. Not too sweet. Bit different than most of the beers in town (pils, pils, export...).

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
33cl bb10/2017, merci idiosynkrasie. Oddly un-aromatic and still tasty-enough metallic Alt with off-kilter candied citrus hop oils. - Mainly macro-sulphury in the nose, metallic barley porridge. Sets off sweet and wheat-bready with touches of toffee and sweet jam, then develops a more pronounced candied citrus and late herbal melissa freshness to rince away the off start. Familiar heavy, metallic Alt body. Strange, unbalanced concoction that has its moments.

So eine einzigartige Kombination ist die Geschichte nun auch wieder nicht. Recht muffig mit einem ordentlichen Schuss an Malz und Karamell. Leicht brotig und im Abgang irgendwie streng.

33cl MHD 10/17, merci idiosynkrasie. Craftbock hence "mit obergärigen Hefearomen...", yet Bock and hopextracted... Buttery caramelcoppery pour. Aroma of damp walnut, skimmed chocolate milk, a touch of Korn abv, sardine oils. Pan-warmed nuts and nut oil bitters in flavour, metallics, rainwater, thin caramels like large batch maple syrup and skimmed Schokomilch. Manages to remain drinkable and somewhat like a filtered, macrobrewed Imperial Alt.

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
Ein netter Versuch eines klassischen Hop Ales, der jedoch ein wenig zu vanillin und blumig ausfällt. Darüber hinaus jedoch angenehm im Hopfen und mit einer angenehmen Einbindung von Zitrusfrüchten. Durchaus trinkbar, wenn auch etwas fernab der eigenen Sorte.

(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber colour with a beige mid-sized foamy head. Sweet dark malty aroma with hints of caramel, sugar beet and shades of herbal hoppy spice. Sweet and delicately bitter flavour, medium bodied with a quite tame carbonation. Slightly syrupy malty taste with veggie notes of sugar beet and caramel; sweet and slightly sticky, restrained bitter finish. Wouldn´t have ordered a second one. 04.VI.17

Hövels Hop Pale Ale
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Discreet aroma of mildly citric and grassy hops, draffy malt in the background. Moderately sweet and delicately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Initially sweet malty base with hints of bread and a whiff of toffee, accompanied by rather cautious drying grassy and citric hops; medium-dry sweet-bitter finish with a mildly grassy touch. Disappointing. 25.IV.17

0.3 l on tap at the brewpub at 18°P and 7.8% abv. Minimally hazy, dark amber with a medium large, foamy, very dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, minimally grassy-spicy aroma of caramel, dark honey and a touch of nuts. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, dark honey and a touch of nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy-spicy finish. Medium to full body, creamy creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Tasty, round and well-made brew, drinks way too easy for that abv. I wondered if Hövels and Wenkers Maibock were about the same but after immediate comparison I dare to say that both are quite different from each other.

0.1 l on tap at ’Wenkers’ at 7.9% abv. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a medium large, creamy, stable, white head. Faint, sweetish-malty and a bit floral aroma of honey, marzipan and straw. Sweetish, malty, slightly floral and a little fruity taste of lots of honey, marzipan, some straw and hints of pear, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly grassy and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite tasty, saturating, just a bit unround, overall very pleasant.

Der Antrunk verwirrt, in dem er eher malzig als hopfig ist. Hell getreidig, dann doch noch hopfig mit eher dunklen Zitrusnoten. Die Hopfigkeit steigt zwar weiter, bleibt aber bis zum Ende hinter den Erwartungen zurück. Mild aber erkennbar bitter, eher langweilig. 9/7/8/8/9/7
