[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.

Went to Andechs some years ago. Loved the Doppelbock. Found the Vollbier Hell at Bay Ridge Wine and Liquors in Annapolis, MD and ultimately bought a case. It’s everything I like: good sudsy sweet German lager, reminds me of my visits to Germany when I looked forward to diving into a untried lager at the end of the day. I’ve gotten several cases since. This is all about German bier.

Hell-a-good ez a bier, már az üveg tapintása is olyan, hogy azonnal inni kell, különben.... különben mi? pontosan.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Clear, light golden with a fine head. Subtle aroma of hay, grass and some floral notes. Well-balanced taste. Not as good as expected.

The aroma is bread, grass
The appearance is clear golden yellow, white head. The flavor is malty, grass, bready. The finish is grassy, spicy, German noble hops medium in body. Uninteresting, but competently brewed.

Pour is a pale gold with a large white head. Aroma is a nice and bready wet dough with some fresh cut hay. Flavor is clean and adjunct free with the dry pale malt, a touch of bitter hops and a nourishing quality. Very thirst quenching as well. At the source this beer is probably a amazing example of the style. It’s still pretty decent after making the journey here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear straw golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a lighter level retention, fading rather fast to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell –The aroma of the beer was strongest of a bready smell mixed with a bit of a yeastiness. Along with these aromas comes some light notes of floral hops and a little bit of a biscuit smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a more bready and yeasty flavor, with these flavors creating a base for the brew. As the taste moves on some notes of grain and a little bit of a floral and grassy hop come to the tongue. The hop grows slightly stronger, but remains relatively light, to leave a crisp, but sorta bready taste (at least for a 4.8% abv. beer) to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of both its thickness and its creaminess. The moderate nature of the mouthfeel is perfect for the mix of bready and yeasty tastes along side the more moderate sessionable style of the beer.
Overall - This was a rather easy drinking and flavorful beer at 4.8% abv. A very nice summer time session I would have to say.

Draft at Andechser am Dom. Clear golden yellow color with a large, billowing white head. Nice honey, bread, biscuit aroma. Flavor is mildly sweet with honey and bready/doughy pilsner malts. Slight grassy hops, but very subtle. Medium-bodied and very smooth, crisp with high carbonation. Very good for the style.

On tap deep in Bavaria. Pours a clear gold color with a soft white head. Aroma is flowers, candy and grain. Taste is near the some but with harmony and the palate is smooth. Not Andechs best Helles but still a great beer.
