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.

What a terrible beer in my opinion. It was watered down, with little color, flavor, or palate. It had no redeeming characteristics except it was easy to drink since it tasted like water.

jredmond (5818) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours clear gold body with small white head which quickly vanishes. Aroma is grassy-skunk. Surprisingly smooth considering the aroma - just some grass in the finish. Pretty good D/H.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 27, 2008
(355 ml bottle ("produced on 10/07") from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors) Pours clear medium-light yellow/gold with a fairly tall whitish head. Aroma of honey, light bread and light piney bitter bite. Mouthfeel fairly smooth with light-medium fullness. Lacing is light broken rings and patches. Flavor is light sweet honeyish malt with a bit of yeasty bread. Nice little bitter bite overlays and carries through finish. A little bit muted overall but still a pretty good Helles that I might give a 4.0 if I had it fresh on draft in a southern German biergarten.

nearbeer (3937) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2008
12 oz, "Munich Gold" label, produced on 01 08. Shiny, clear and effervescent gold with a large head that settles into a long-lasting ring. Spicy honey, grain, slight skunk, and lemon grass aromas. Flavor is a well-blended and balanced mix of the same. Near-medium body is smooth with a slight tongue tingle, and a crisp finish.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. The beer starts very mild, almost vapid. Finish a little bit spicy and sweet. Interesting.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle.
Pours a decent gold with an aroma of weak cigarette smoke and ashtray. Flavor is watered down lemony lager with a tinge of malt backbone. Watery mouthfeel. Average at best.

Holdwine (1097) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2008
A bit light for a Dortmunder. Very drinkable. No complaints otherwise. Some sweet notes.

CanIHave4Beers (3428) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2008
Clearly a very refreshing beer, very easy drinking! Pours a deeper gold than many Dortmunders I have had, and has a nice fluffy head. Taste is remarkabally malty and not terribly well balanced, as it is just a bit sweet. No less this is very crisp and has some fantasic malt flavor.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle labeled Munich Gold. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of honey and herbal hops, a little fruit mixed in. Taste is semi-sweet with little to no hop character. Finish is a little astringent. So-so.

bottle. bottle labeld Munich Gold finest lager. Don’t know if this is it or not? Smelled like bananas and skunk piss. Gold in color. Lots of carbonation. small white head. Flavor of Budweiser. very gritty mouth feel. BLahg! I don’t like this stuff. AT ALL.
