COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2003
A dark yellow beer with an OK head. The aroma is malty and the flavor is smooth sweet and malty. A very simple beer - nothing special on my scale.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy, golden beer with a creamy head that sticks to the glass. Malty with some sweetness and yet with an apparent streak of hops which gives flavor and bitterness. Classic, good, Bavarian "Helles". 040304

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Blond color. Honeyish malt aroma. Medium strength, but over-average malt flavor. Fresh, smooth, equilibrated, one of the few German bottled helles worth to try. Reasonable final, not too much aromatic, pretty long.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear, very pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Pleasant, with creamy and biscuity pale bread, faint bitter straw, some hints of lemon. Light bodied with average carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Clean and moderately sweet to finish with more doughy biscuits and low hop presence. Love it. Could drink this beer all day.
