3.54/5 rDev -8.5%
This beer was a bright, light yellow color with a nice-sized white head.
Sweet malt aroma with some floral and grassy hops.
Sweet malt taste, bready. Late floral hoppiness.
This beer was a perfect beer to start my evening. Light, crisp, very drinkable. It paired well with some almonds I was eating.

4.3/5 rDev +11.1%
appearance: crystal clear, a pleasant rich head but not doughy, effervescent without being over bubbly
smell: straw smell with a bit of fruit on the sides, nice mix
taste: nice where can I start. First its smooth flavor of great rich malty sweetness. On the end is a nice bight but not too much. Really loving this flavor.
mouthfeel: bit weak wish it hung out a bit longer, but it is more of just a bitter flavor not the full Monty
overall: A good brew they made this one so you would want one after another. I like it definitely recommend to anyone

A- Golden colour, perfectly transparent, some carbonation bubbles reaching the top. Nice white head, a couple of fingers, nice retention and lacing
S- Clean classic pale lager smell: grainy, a fresh herbal whiff, mild citric notes backfront
T- Again perfectly clean as the smell suggested. Very pleasant and natural feeling crackery crispness from the malts, quite bitter (for the style i mean) herbal/grassy notes on the back of the mouth and in aftertaste. A lemon note and the slightest hint of spiciness also present, bringing that very appreciated touch of complexity that still doesn't take away anything from the amazing drinkability. Perfectly dry finish leaves you longing for another sip
M- Body and carbonation are a bit more vivid than the usual helles (this is in fact what would be once called an export version). Can't really say why but crispness is somehow more pleasant than in most helles, still the beer is amazingly smooth and easy
O- A plain excellent beer in all what helles are supposed to be. Just very very good

A: Pours rich white head at first, then the liquid rises as the head settles. Clear golden color. Rich lacings. after a really long time.
S: Malt and bitterhops - nothing else, but a very nice balance. Modest but still rich. This is like "don't mend what's not broken".
T: Again this is a very "simple" beer - but man they've made the most of bitterhops (eventhough rather mild) and malt. No other tastes are present - and that makes me grateful!
M: A mild sour but more bitter aftertaste stays for a surprisingly long time - me like! Body is light while carbonation is rich but still modest.
O: A question comes to mind; can the brewer at Andechs brew a product that isn't top notch? In my opinoin; NO, not even in his sleep. Yet another fantastic Bavarian beer.
