A product of traditional multiple mashing, Andechser Vollbier Hell presents a bright straw yellow and clear gleaming look that cannot fail to fascinate. Its head is firm and fine pored. Its aroma is pure and fresh from the cellar, with soft malty accents imbued with floral hoppiness. Its light and soft body leaves a pleasant, tangy taste in the mouth. The mild sweetness marries well with the velvety bitterness of the hops. It concludes on a rounded, harmonious note. Andechser Vollbier Hell is therefore a classical Bavarian Vollbier (11.5% original extract and 4.8% alcohol by volume).

Pours crystal clear straw yellow with moderate frothy white top. Aroma is cereal grains and light floral. Taste is crisp, clean, cereal malts with a touch of bitterness. Well balanced and well made, I’d expect nothing less from Andechs.

Bottle: The aroma consists of lightly sweet cereal/grain, with a touch of honey, grass, and straw. It’s pours a transparent dull gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet cereal notes with a hint of apple. The finish has light grass and straw. It’s light-medium bodied mild carbonation.
