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.

Nice German Lager. Malty and low on hops compared to most Muncheners. Refreashing after a work-out with a nurishing feel. I like it.

Strong sweet grain aroma. Clear golden color with some white foam. Sweet throughout. Getting tangy in the finish.

Bottle. Poured pale gold with medium white head. Light lacing. Aroma is malty with some herb notes. Light flavour, Malty with a bitter edge. Finish is slightly salty with considerable hoppiness. It isn’t bad but not a super beer either

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010
A yellow color beer with a pretty good looking head. Not much aroma & actually not much taste but there is nothing in this that tastes bad.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Labeled as "Munich" Gold. Pours a clear golden color with lots of visible carbonation. Thin fizzy white head. Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malty notes. Taste is lightly toasted malts, grassy hops and light fruity notes. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Not comparable to an American Lager. Citrussy and light. Very drinkable. But when I think German Beer, this one was pretty weak.

manuchampions (1241) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2009
Pours a very light yellow with almost no head at all. Aroma is of wet hay. Taste is thin and lacking complexity. Grassy hops, slightly lemony with a tart finish and very little malt backing. This is a passable German helles but by no means the best I’ve ever had.
