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.

degbert (1738) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours a yellow-green with a high, pillowy, lacy, white head. Nose is, frankly, not much -- a little turbinado sugar, a little tropical fruit, a little toast. On the palate, its bitter and a little saccharine and not much else. Eminently forgettable; stick to their doppelbock. I have trouble believing its the same brewery.

Very sweet lager. Pale gold appearance, very clean. Frothy white head. moderate head retention. DMS, quite sweet (malty sweet).

Tmoney99 (13891) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy lager aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Soft brew.

Grumpelmies (145) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle. Golden with a decent head. Bready, spicy, grassy. Made the mistake of drinking this right after Andechs Spezial Hell. Weaker than that one. Still alright.

alexsdad06 (9671) - Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Draft at Dutchs. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma is very mild, basic lager blah. The flavor has sweet corn and grainy lager malt character, grass, mineral notes, light bitterness, meh.

On Tap at Prost! Boise. Pale light golden. Big fluffy white head. Light slightly sweet malt flavors. A little banana German yeast flavors. Some pilsenerish hop bite at the end.

luttonm (5237) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2016
SIBF 2016, Seattle. Clean light yellow, white foam. Very pale. Lighter grassy malt, nice Euro light sweetness. proper lager. Reasonable diacetyl. Dry cardboard. Quite ok.

thedm (5936) - Fredonia, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent weak straw yellow colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was straw and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The weak flavor contained notes of straw floral and grass. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Leichtes Bier, kein hoch intensiver Geschmack, passt zur Brotzeit oder einfach mal so fr zwischendurch

Andechser Vollbier Hell has a thick, white head, a hazy, golden appearance, some individual ascending bubbles, and heavy lacing left behind, on the glass. The aroma is of rich, yeasty, herbal white bread and some dried fruit. Taste is of those elements, with even more of a spice zing coming into play. Mouthfeel is medium, and Andechser Vollbier Hell finishes medium dry and easy drinking. RJT
