“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.

Clear light golden in color with a one- finger white head and good lacing. The aroma is big on honey with pale malt and slight hoppiness. The flavor is also sweet and honeyish, very tasty, with pale malt, cereal grains, and slight hop bitterness. Medium-bodied for the style with average carbonation. Somewhat slick on the palate. Great for the style overall, if not too exciting.

Aroma is of sweet malts with a little fruitiness and spice. The taste is a little sweet, but also bready malts and corn. I would consider it an above average lager, but it’s just a little off.

Le liquide est doré pâle et la mousse est fugace. Un parfum doux et sucré de malt pils domine les arômes légèrement épicés et herbeux des houblons nobles. Au goût, identique à ce que le nez nous donne : les céréales sont légèrement sucrés et les saveurs des houblons sont discrètes et très peu amérisantes. En bouche, le liquide a une fine musculature avec une effervescence modérée et une texture souple, presque crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes maltées.

Swing-top bottle. Sweet barley malt, lemongrass and pepper aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Mildly sweet barley malt flavor with a hint of hops. Okay but pretty bland.

[3402-20100928] 500mL bottle. Mild corn grass aroma with sweetgrass and a hint of lemon sage. Clear, dark yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Corn oil and grains yeast flavour. Medium body. Bland, possibly better with spicy food.

Bottle. Gold appearance (as advertised). Mild lemon, woody hops and vague malt aromas; heavier malt flavour balanced with some sweetness and a wet cardboard finish. Ho-hum.

A rather mediocre German lager. Although it is still better than most other lagers from other countries.

I had this beer on tap in Munich and the moment it hit my lips, I knew it was my favourite beer. It’s a fine example of Germain brewing and leaves you satisfied yet wanted more, because it was so delicious. I recommend this beer to everyone. Draft is better than bottle IMHO.

500ml bottle, clean golden color, with a big fluffy white head, nice cut hay, honeyed toasted, pale malt nose with a hint of breadyness and nuttiness, and a light fruity note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sweet buttery, toasted, pale malt character with some hints of nuttiness and soft cookie maltiness, with a faint flowery hop leafy accent, leading towards a smooth malty, soft lingering hop bitterness finish.

I’m not a big fan of the Helles. Very carbonated, ample white foamy head, very light gold color. Skunky taste. Probably decent for this type, but it’s not for me.
