“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: Pours a light gold lager wit a rocky 2 finger white cap that lasts and laces. Aromas of sweet-bready Munich pale malts over the wet straw and woody noble hopping....light sweetness from decoction mashing. Nice dose of light doughy malt up front, well balanced with a woody herbal tang of spalters riding just below the malt profile....finishes with a lemon-grass kiss from the hops. Light but satisfying. Boiler plate continental Vollbier.

Barely any aroma, it is of grains though. Pours a nice pale gold with an extremely quickly disappearing head. Complete with a taste and mouthfeel that disappoint. A flat grainy palate and a watery taste. Unoffensive, but I’m not at all a fan.

Dorqui (2196) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 24, 2009
Bottled. Compact and adherent head, discreet resistance. Shining yellow color, much limpid one and with good bubbly aspect. Rather lean aroma, but with pleasant herbaceous and cereals notes. Bitterish taste, balanced, refreshing, much simple but altogether pleasant and moderated.
