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).

Bavarian_Beer (31) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016
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.

vyvvy (5132) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2016
The beer pours crystal clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has light dough, pale pils malt and lager smoothness. Pretty simple, but nice. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The taste starts with dry pale malt, smooth lager maltiness, some crackers and light spice. The finish has a light bite of hops with spiciness, but still malt forward. Nice.

SanfordBrewer (1422) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Translucent straw with a thin but persistent white head. Creamy medium body with crisp high carbonation, and some slight tannin presence.

aroma: doughy pilsner malt with sweet bready notes associated with decoction mashing. Faint grassy herbal hop character. Clean and inviting.

Flavor: crisp carbonic bite, doughy pilsner malt, leafy grassy hops, and a rich biscuity finish likely from decoction.

kerenmk (3621) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear light gold with a white head. Aroma of straw and dry grass. Tastes bitter, grassy, a little mineral, malty and yet dry. Full body for the style, well-carbonated, malty and bready but still a little bitter aftertaste.

RasmusOtt (1861) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle @ Dangerous bottleshares. Pours bright golden with a white head. Aroma is pretty metallic with some pilsner malt and basically reminded me of being at a soccer game or something. The taste has some grains, regular pilsner malty notes, grass and weak metallic. Drinkable though indeed.

Bright gold color. Tall head that laces the glass and lasts until the end of the beer in a dimpled mug. Less flavorful than I hoped it would be. Malt flavor, bread, salt. Great palate. It is very well made but flavor is a little light. Some yeast in the Roma.
