Beer of the Week: Kloster Andechs Vollbier Hell

IMG_3553

Kloster Andechser Vollbier Hell (4.8% alcohol): This Munich Helles Lager brewed by Klosterbrauerei Andechs in Andechs, Germany pours a clear, golden yellow with a bright one-finger head and moderate lacing. Vollbier Hell has an aroma of toasted malts, wheat and grass. This brew has a nice flavor profile of dry graininess, lemon citrus, complex malts with sweet undertones and light bitter hops at the end. Vollbier Hell is smooth yet crisp at the same time. Overall, this is a great summer beer – traditional, refreshing Bavarian Lager.

*This beer was purchased at Gary’s Wine and Marketplace.

  1. I remember visiting the monastry at Andechs, where they have been making this beer for centuries. We went to visit the church and had just climbed the steeple when the bells struck twelve. Giant bells. Right beside us. In a wooden steeple.
    No rollercoaster ride has ever been as bad as that.
    Lovely beer, though … 😉

    • That sounds like quite an experience! I’m surprised they let visitors go in the steeple. Sounds like a lot of fun – when the giant bells aren’t ringing! Hopefully the beer made up for the adrenaline rush 🙂
