“Munich Gold” closely resembles our Münchner Hell in terms of taste and mainly owes its popularity to a slightly higher original gravity and the malty note. The result is a full-bodied yet mild taste which delivers an increasingly bitter note before culminating into an aromatic finish. A real treat for true beer connoisseurs!

The types of barley grown in the Swabian Jura and in the Upper Palatinate Region of Bavaria are excellently suited for the production of this timeless classic.

Hacker-Pschorr has been brewing beer in the traditional Bavarian manner since 1417. The high-quality beers the brewery produces are all brewed in accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law and contain only water, malt and hops.

Kauge (1619) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle from local supermarket. BB 03.2017. Pours clear bright golden with good off-white head. The aroma is damp malts with grassy-herbal hoppiness. Tastes of cereals, a bit papery, moderately sweet, with a tingle of grassy hops in the finish. I wonder what the ratio is between hops and hop extract. Crispish yet moderate carbonation, lightish medium body. Pleasantly soft mouthfeel. Not made to blow anyone’s mind but it’s perfectly adequate. Nice for a lager.

portwood (190) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Aromatic, malty, grassy hops, slight phenolic note. Light body, slightly grainy carbonation, malt sugars. Dry grass, herbal note, light Euro hop bitterness. Better than avg lager without the nasty adjunct taste. (canned 04/27/16)

O malte se sobressai do início ao fim. No final o lúpulo aparece um pouco. Boa formação de espuma.
