“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.

Viper666 (2811) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2010
Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, moyen de houblon herbeux (gazon et foin) aux petites notes florales ainsi que des notes de pain. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Goût de houblon herbeux (foin et gazon, présent en arrière-goût durant toute la gorgée) accompagné de traces fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt pâle avec des notes de pain puis en finale le goût de houblon reprend le dessus en étant légèrement asséchant et avec des petites notes florales. Post-goût moyen-court et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

djredpop (101) - Downriver, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Brilliant light gold, clear. Pillowy white head, little retention or lacing. Earthy lager yeast aroma with subdued hops character. Flavor is dead-on for style. A little maltier than a pilsenener and a bit less bitter. Light-medium body, soapy mouthfeel. Light malt finish, slightly sweet. A solid example of Dort / Helles.

Malty nose, pale straw in colour, frothy white head and a surprisingly strong malt backbone.

asheft (2776) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
[bottle] Sweet malty aroma with some blended hay and spicy characteristics. Clear, light gold under a white cover. Flavour is grainy and sweet with some noble hops that come in with a bit of ethanol. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, very slightly bitter finish.

Underwhelming appearance and aroma, this one (sold in a strangely American 355ml bottle and labeled "Munich Gold") reminds me that Helles and pale lager are not necessarily different things. A bit of skunkiness, a bit of hoppiness, a bit more malt, and that’s about it; not too bad and not too good. Tastes much weaker than its 5.5% abv!

Cartoonkhaki (1223) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle. Golden colour with white head. Grassy grain aroma and similar flavour. Too much for me actually and doesn’t leave me feeling to good about this one. Palate wasn’t that bad though.

blankboy (6776) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Pretty mediocre aroma of grain, somewhat sweet with some vegetal notes and bready malt. Flavour of bready malt, grain, some light grassy hops and maybe some fruit as well. A bit watery but decent. Average bodied. Nothing exciting here but it’s also inoffensive, would go down O.K. on a warm Summer day I guess.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Pours a very pale straw colour with minimal head. Aroma is light and fresh, mildly hoppy. Taste is mildly bitter, with a bit of lingering sweetness. Finish is fairly short. Overall, this is a pretty basic beer, really nothing special about it.
