COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.

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.

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2010
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.

strongpieman (1648) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2010
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.

(355ml bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, grass, and light lemon. Flavor of cereal, grass, lemon, and corn.

Refreshing german lager. Dry and malty. Grassy and fruity. Noble hops : What you really wish a german blond lager would taste like in a Munich pub.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2010
2010-09-28. Crisp golden yellow body with a small foamy white head that fades. Flavour is mild, light bitterness throughout, mild alcohol touches, muted pale malt sweetness in the middle. Aroma is similar, with a surprisingly prominent amount of alcohol preceding modest dry grass and straw hops, muted pale malt. Average palate. Mostly inoffensive, but this is not a style I love, and this is just an average example of it. Bottle from LCBO, Toronto

Pours pale gold with white head and some lacing. Notes of straw and corn. Balanced taste of this type of lager. Crisp.
