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).

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[bottle] Pours a very clear, golden yellow color. Strong yeast aroma, with some interesting sulfur character present (I seem to be noticing this a lot with the Andechs beers). Flavors are surprisingly clean and malty. Smooth. Finishes with a great noble hop bitterness.

I like it. Dry, with notes of straw and grass, clean and crisp. Lightly bready, maybe more cracker-like. Light golden color

I have found this bottle at Amstein, they work with this brewery since a couple of years, in the past it was with ayinger. Best before 03/2018, classical picture with the church and this one follows this way. I think that it is a good one for the style, the taste is what it should be a lager. The color is yellow and gold, average carbonation, thin and white foam. You have generous notes of malt, bready and at the final, it appears notes of honey and hop, well balanced, the perfect beee after the garden, a bit watery and dry.

slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Bottle from Craft Reno. Near clear golden with decent sized lasting white head. Smell is light honey and grassy hops. Some cereal on the palate. Decent body but high carbonation takes away from that a bit. Solid for the style for sure.

3.6
Nische (2661) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2017
Tap at Man In The Moon. Pale yellow with white head. Grass, bread, cereal and honey. A bit yeasty towards the finish. Very clean and crisp. Great lager.

3.1
tapefuzz (928) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2017
500mL bottle. Pours clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is grass, cereal, grain, yeast, and a small amount of honey. Taste is sweet; corn, grain, grass, yeast, cereal, some honey, and bread. Light body. Medium carbonation. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel - a little on the thin side and has a slight oiliness, but otherwise solid.

meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Solid for its kind, but unremarkable overall. The appearance is a yellowy pee clear and the smell is a slightly skunky clean grassy muck. The taste is a mild syrupy corn and grass mishmash that is relatively smooth and seems like it would pair well with some heavy grub. Good for cooling off after a long foot journey to obtain better beers than this one while binging on wrestling in the absence of the one you love.

Great light German beer. Very refreshing. Starts of with lots of flavor for a light beer and finishes smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
