“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.

Minimal head when poured into a glass, some lacing. Quite a bit of carbonation that Kerry throne on the palate. Not much of a scent aroma, and the taste is a bit like high-end Miller Lite. There are some notes of caramel or sweetness in the background . This beer doesn’t have a whole lot going for it given the price.

vidmidia (281) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 8, 2016
Dourada, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma e sabor de cereais. Adocicada, com um leve amargor no retrogosto e uma carbonatação fina que envolve a língua como acidez.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2016
500mL swing-top bottle BBE: 07/16. Well-chilled (approx. 4 degrees). Pours a crystal clear amber body with medium, lasting, tight, off-white head. On the nose, medium intensity, sweet, bready malt aromas, vanilla, yeast and spice. A medium, sugary sweetness is partly counteracted by a light bitterness. Medium-bodied with a sticky texture, medium carbonation and a lingering, sweet cereal finish. Rather more wort-like than an accomplished beer, but definitely not a typical, straightforward lager.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 On tap, stein glass, at the Bavarian Brauhaus, Bothwell Street, Glasgow. Aroma is mainly cereal. Pleasant full flavoured, full bodied, smooth, lightly fruity lager.

slowrunner77 (9952) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Clean sweet and bready aroma and taste with just a tiny bit of bite to it. Smoother than expected as well. Not great, but enjoyable.

It’s lager day so decided to find something I never tried. It’s actually very clean and smooth. Wife liked it also. Very good for the style.
