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).

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. Its 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. Ive gotten several cases since. This is all about German bier.

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.

thegreenrooster (4280) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2016
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. Its still pretty decent after making the journey here.
