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).

[bottle] Pours a very clear, golden yellow color. Strong yeast aroma, with some interesting sulfur character present (I seem to be noticing this a lot with the Andechs beers). Flavors are surprisingly clean and malty. Smooth. Finishes with a great noble hop bitterness.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2015
500 ml bottle poured by the rep at a free, unexpected tasting at the American Sign Museum. Sure, don’t mind if I do. Pours a clear, bright gold with a finger of white head and visible carbonation bubbles. Notes of straw, grass, bready and crackery malts, and some bright and spicy summery florals. Light-bodied, with medium-plus carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Good traditional helles. Worked for me.

Ritzn (8) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2015 does not count
500 ml bottle. Pours nicely, very clear yellow color with average white head. Aroma is mostly hay and hops. Taste is mostly bitter and a little sour. Some notes of apple and hay may be perceived. Lively carbonation, medium body and bitter finish. All in all a little bitter for my taste. My first rating on ratebeer. I hope there are more to come :)
