Andechser Vollbier Hell

Jungle Jim's, Cincinnati, June 2021. A classic. Light golden, sparkling body with utter clarity. Great, wispy, massive head, but because of the wispy nature it collapses quite quickly. I wonder if the head is different on draft? Nose and tastes give the requisite bread and maltiness. There's a sweetness about the beer (and indeed the style), that I have to be in the mood for, and occasionally touches on an adjunct, euro lager cloying nature. It never really gets there, but there's a fine line....

Notes added: 07/14/21 Pictured added. Still as bold and constant as ever. Malt and alcohol dominate, and the craving for potatoes and sausage never lets up. As you were. Funny how this beer was once SO sought after, as a leader in the style, and as a beeradvocate top "X" beer back in the day. Frankly, that ranking was deserved (and still is), the problem being that now thoes lists are awash with a millions NEIPAs and such. Original Review: 03/09/09 Huge thanks (again) go out to the groovy one...
