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).

Maxbier (589) - Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2015
Blind taste. Clear yellow pour with fine bubble white head. Sweet lemon syrup aroma. Taste is fresh hay and dry grassy hop and malt. Not bad with food, alone it's a bit one dimensional. .

ghawener (1518) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 2, 2015
Bottle: Drank if Freising after a day trip to Munich, not a fan of Helles (bad news is you’re in Bavaria...) thin, sweet, faint, etc I need hops. Food Pairing: Knodel (just as bland)

JDBaker11058 (1444) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Appearance: bright, clear straw yellow, with a big, electric white head that shrinks to a frothy cap, leaving excellent lace. Aroma: slightly floral, with a bit of honey and grass. Taste: toasted white bread, decent floral honey, cereal, and hay notes, with a hint of peppercorn. Finish: slightly tangy, with a hint of mustard grains and toast. Notes: Superlative dortmunder. Great palate, easy to drink, and flavorful. Sometimes getting back to a traditional, well-crafted German lager is just what the doctor ordered. Bottle from Roots Market in Olney, Maryland.
