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).

Poured at tasting a light yellow with white head. Aroma is a light malt and lemon. Body is very light. Taste is a lemony malt. Some hays. Not bad for a style that is not my cup of tea.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Blonde ginger ale appearance with fizzy body. Pleasant lightly kilned grain nose with touches of hay and grassy hop notes. Likewise, the body has a nice pilsen graininess to it. Crisp, light maltiness with brush of hay.

notalush (5162) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2014
50cl bottle - pours a clear gold - sticky, sudsy lace - nose is clean, honeyed maltiness, light mineral, grassy hops - flavor is surprisingly sweet - there is a nice grassy hop bite and light mineral, but they do not completely balance the swetness - nice frothy carbonation - finish of grass and light grain - a refreshing Helles, quite tasty, I’d just like slightly more balance between sweet/bitter.
