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).

Tap at Zum Schneider,Montauk. I’m either rating the correct beer OR traunsteiner Helles. Hopefully not wrong. Let’s assume this is right. Pours pale yellow, white head. Aroma is lemon, floral, slightly sweet note. Not bad. Flavor is same. Nothing to elaborate on. It’s fine.

Keg at The University Club, Oxford. Carbonated gold with thin white head. Thinnish, light beer, herby, grassy malts with a ligh floral note. Some sweetness. Sharp, and fresh, but there is a damp carpet note. It’s okay but fairly basic.

Bottle from Elysium. Aroma: Mostly bready malts, some spicy, flowery and metalic hops. Appearance: Body is golden, head ok but quickly disappears. Taste: Standard helles, bready matliness, some corn, grain, low biterness, some spicy and metallic hops, flowers. Palate: Carbonation medium, finish semi-sweet, body low to medium.

On tap at PIB 2016, pours a hazy blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out light crackery malt and a touch of herbal notes. Flavour is similar, with biscuity malt and light herbal qualities. Authentic and clean, but not overly intriguing. Solid.

From the 500 ml. bottle stamped L-2014, So I don;t know if that means it is two years old. Pale yellow pour with quick lasting white fizzy head. Toasted German malts on the nose with grass too. The body is light to medium. The taste has a nice enough sweet German toasted malt presence with a clean, crisp finish, Pretty basic but easy to drink.

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.
