BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Klosterbrauerei Andechs
Germany
andechs.de

Style: Munich Helles Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear pale yellow color, with some pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, with a nice citrus complex (lemon, grapefruit). The taste is pretty nice, malty, hoppy, with a nice citrus complex (lemon, grapefruit), nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty nicely. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

L: Pours a pale straw yellow, with a very creamy white head that dissipates rather quickly but leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: Toasted cereal sweet malt, mixed with some fresh bread dough, and some nice floral hops. Very inviting aroma.

Poured a pale straw color with thin white head. Very clear. Moderate lacing. Nose is fresh and very light toast and flowery. Taste is sweet followed by light dough and balanced hop bitterness. Very refreshing. Light to moderate feel and carbonation. Crisp. This is a very good Helles Lager!

Pours into a half liter stein a clear shimmering lighter golden with a large blooming bone white head that settles very nicely into a frothy mass.Toasted grains,slight mineral,and floral hops in the nose,very delicate in nature.Very dry and crisp on the palate,almost toasted cereal-like, with just a hint of sweetish pizza dough that lingers,there is a mineral element and slightly sharp hoppy finish.What a great delicate lager,great subtle flavor nuances and great to look at.A gem of a helles lager here.

On tap at The Upper Lip.

A limpid light yellow with a suffuse white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is brilliant. Soft, doughy, lemony , earthy with honey, a little dust and bread, this is excellent. The palate opens soft, doughy and mildly bitter, a blend of honey, earth and lemon. Mildly dusty with cotton candy, lemon zest and dough. Soft, mildly bitter on the finish, this beer is light in body, softly carbonated and exceptional.

HELL beer! Ahhhhh. Light golden in color. Clear in appearance. Toasted grain, earthy grass and noble hop flavors. Light, crisp and delicious! Very solid German Helles.

Got one bottle from Bottlecraft Little Italy, SD.
A good Munich hell, but there's some strange moldy, metallic taste, similar to another beer that I could not think of.

This is one of the gold standards for a Helles.

Crystal clear pale blonde colour, super bready and crisp.

Such a great summer day lager.

Highly recommended.
