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's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
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.

thomat (3868) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2017
On tap @ 3 SmåRum. Pale golden with a medium whithe head. malty and herbal tones. Malt, herbs, caramel and hops. Medium body with a bitter / malty finish.

Theydon_Bois (19537) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
At the source, 16/07/17. Clear pale golden with a decent white head that retains well. Nose is pale malts, cereals, light citric notes, caramel, light bread. Taste comprises pale malts, vanilla, light fruit esters, toasted grains, bready notes. Medium bodied, fine to gentle spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Decent for the style.

Scipio (1085) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Pours a thin golden with a bubbly white head that recedes very quickly. The aroma is subdued. It has grassy hops, bread, cereal, corn, and grain. The taste has some initial sweetness to it. I find a faint bitterness as well. Flavors are well balanced between honey, cereal, bread, and grass, with some lesser grain, and hints of banana. Short honey finish. Light in body, thin in texture, and average carbonation. This one goes down smooth and easy. Unspectacular, although I would have no problems at all drinking this again.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with an enormous soapy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with a touch of grass and grape. The flavor was tangy and grainy with faint notes of grape, grass and hay. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

cervmagpt (838) - PORTUGAL - JUL 4, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 4A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 02/02/17). AROMA: medium-low malt aroma with slight honey notes. faint cardboard. APPEARANCE: light yellow to yellow color and clear. medium-low white head with good retention. TASTE: medium-low malt flavor with a slight honey-sweet character. no perceptible hop notes. faint cardboard notes. medium-low bitterness with a slightly bitter and somewhat malty finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average munich helles-type beer with still good charactristics despite its already past due its best before date.

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Golden. Thin head. Nice pale malt nose, really bready. Soft body, nice light character, mellow bready malts. Decent.

Cristobal37 (1143) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 14, 2017
Vom Flasche. Super pale yella. Hay, bread, grassy. Mildly sweet, big malty helles. Very little bitterness on the finish, as expected. Would be nice with some sausages and canbage, but itll do on its own as well.

klm1 (1538) - Bled/SF, - MAY 16, 2017
Tap@: pours golden, slightly clear, with tan white head. Aroma-flavour: white bread, biscuit like malt character, supported with grassy, floral hop notes. Moderate medium body, soft texture, moderate carbonation.

tgrtnr (187) - Augsburg, GERMANY - APR 25, 2017
500 ml from bottle, served in mug. Bright golden colour, medium head. Grain, citrus, bread. Taste fresh like from the tap, slightly bitter and floral, hoppy taste. Lively carbonated, thin body. Nice palate. Creamy texture. This is a very nice Helles.

vinivini (2430) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 9, 2017
Clear gold, big white head. Stays. Bready aroma. Spicy hops as well in there. Light to medium body. Dryish flavour where bready malts and noble hops play well together. Light bitterness. Decent.
