“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.

varanid99 (1006) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2016
Pale gold with a decent white head which quickly fades. Grainy, grassy, slight cardboard aroma. Taste is grain, boiled vegetables, sweet, a little bit of bitterness, almost flat. Not really that great

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
50cl swing-top bottle from M&S, Camberley. A pale golden amber pour with a loose, fast-fading, white head; sour malty grain aroma; soft, slightly sour, sweet grainy taste; and a lightly bitter finish with an unusual spiciness. Rather good.

KeefOz (1536) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2016
Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one- to two-finger bright white dense foam head that retained OK and laced OK as dots. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of moderately strong sweet malt and grain with no obvious hops. Taste of sweet pale malt which is a bit stronger than other Helles but taste is a bit bland; very slight bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth, soft and light with a slight sweetness on the finish. OK.

On tap. Clear golden. Tall dense rocky white head. Good retention. Thick lacing. Clean malty aroma. Some spicy hop detectable. Light to medium body. Oily. Clear malty flavour. Grainy. Light hop bitterness balanced it. Very pleasant & drinkable. Fine

visionthing (4796) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2016
50cl bottle at F-Hoone, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a modest white head. Mild grainy aroma with slightly fruity notes and hints of grassy and herbal hops. Moderate sweet with fairly low flavour intensity and a mild, but fairly pleasant bitterness. Quite okay as a thirst quencher, but hardly anything special.

Clear golden with minimal head. Aroma is typical helles stuff with a little musty hops and also a hint of cheese. Taste is the same harsh bitterness and mustyness. Medium body, average musty finish. Overall nothing special...
