“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.

A golden blonde helles with a thin white head. In aroma, a grainy malt with light apples and fruity notes. In mouth, a nice chalky malt, lightly sweet, german hops. Tasted August 14 2010.

llcooldave (1187) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Slightly cloudy honey color. Immediate aroma of pretzels & some corn. It kinda smells like corn tortillas. Straight forward malt flavor with some trailing hops bitterness. Overall, it’s fairly smooth and easy drinking with enough going on to keep it interesting.

Had this one at the UDRBM, 31-07-2010. Clear golden colored brew. Skunky aroma. Flavor has grain, nasty malts, sticky palate, sweetness. Not that good.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a lager glass. Pours clear golden with a frothy off-white head. Head slowly fades to a thin cover. On the nose, there are aromas of flowers, grass, hops, honey, caramel and pale malts. On the tongue, the flavour is primarily honey sweet with a delicate contingent of grass and hops. It becomes ever so slightly bitter in the finish, but malts are dominant by far. The finish is medium in length and malty. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation with large bubbles. Overall, this is a fairly simple sweet, malty lager with not much in the way of hops. It is very clean and easy to drink. A decent alternative to light macro summer beers, but not very interesting otherwise. 2010-08-15

dagimp (921) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
From a 355ml into a pilsner glass. Pours a medium straw color with about 3 inches of head. brewed on date is 11/09... almost a year old, hope that hasn’t affected the beer too much... Aroma is very mild with wheat and hops predominating. Mouthfeel is very, very good. Smooth but with some body too; the highlight of the beer. Taste is mild with some chalk, honey, hops and banana. Overall, ok, but too many good pilsners, and light lagers around to go looking for this one again.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle from Daily Delis. Nice orange gold body with thin head. Malty, watery nose. Taste of caramel, malts. Quite nice. Not really overpowering, quite subtle with a solid finish.

HogTownHarry (6373) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
500ml bottle from LCBO. Clear gold, large diminishing fizzy white head. Smells sweet - honey and plastic, like many Canadian shitty lagers. Taste is simple, and honey-sweet, but floral and grassy with no crappy adjunct flavours - pretty nice, really. Light, mildly syrupy body, decent carbonation and a quick finish - very summery and drinkable.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle @ meeting. Golden pour, small head. Aroma is faint fruit and malt, very distant hop. Flavour is a weird metallic sweetness with some spices. Quite dry.

Borresteijn (6079) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2010
50cl Bottle at UDRBM. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is very sweet, malty, light bready, sugar, straw. Flavour is sweet, malty, honey, hay, very light bitter finish. Light bodied, a bit too sweet imo.
