“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.

Pours a brilliantly clear straw gold with a huge head of foam that leaves lacing behind as the foam recedes. The smell is purfumey, almost light it was a bit light struck despite the brown bottle. Spicy hop nose takes it from there with some biscuit notes from the malt. The taste reverses the smell. Malty, leaning on the biscuit slightly sweet side. Hops have a spicy tingle to them along with some light citrus. Nice light body with good carbonation, this is a very refreshing beer. Very nice.

Clear golden color, big white head, but it fades quickly. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste is light bitter. Aftertaste is pleasant and it lasts quite long. Nice lager, perfect beer for this summer day.
