“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.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2009 Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: rich shade of gold with medium plus white fine almost creamy head. Medium lace noted. 4-
Nose: Sweet malts , fruity light , peach ,hint of pear , juicy.
Flavor/Palate : Soft in character as Helles does. Malt oriented with its sweet malty qualities. Good brew but this could go step further . Felt as if unfinished try. HP can do better.

500mL bottle from my local BS. Very cool labelling, though I’m not sure if it’ll be as popular as the Edelhell was with the German mistress on the front. Pours a perfect pale gold with a medium white head. The aroma is very classic for the style, HP pale malt body with some grassy Noble hops, more than I would expect for this style. Very crisp and enticing. Flavour is super crisp, extremely refreshing, nice biscuity malts follow ample German hops, rounded out very well balanced in the finish. Sourish barley tinge in their too. Soft feeling in the mouth as one would expect from a Munich Helles. Underlying hoppy dryness. Totally bang-on stylistically to me and very tasty. The more subtle aspects come out as it warms. Very nice, if not particularly distinct from their Edelhell.

Bottled. Do you know you’d go a long way before you saw a light beer looking so good in a glass. Crystal clear gold with an effortlessly attractive white head in an old man’s dimpled handled mug. It tastes and smells good too with nice lemony hops and a touch of creamy (not sickly buttery) malts. Fairly full bodied and rewardingly drinkable. Nice stuff.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 355ml bottle with a produced on date of 03/08. I sampled this beer on 05/23/09. Also I sampled the imported version Munich Gold. Appearance: Its body has a beautiful bright golden color with lots of visible carbonation and good clarity except for some tiny, light tan (probably yeast) floaters. On top there is a bright white sudsy head. It quickly fades out and makes only minimal lacing. Smell: The aroma has light grainy malt with a very slight hint of citrus and some floral hop notes. Taste/Mouth: The flavor has a crisp pale malt base with mild bittering hops that add some mild floral notes. The finish is very clean with just the slightest bitterness from the hops in the after taste. On the palate the active carbonation tickles the tongue and its light to medium body slides down easily. Notes: Over all a nice refreshing beer. I know this Lager was a little bit on the old side and I thick that’s why I got the small particles. However the flavor was bright and crisp with no off flavors.

CapFlu (5074) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
(500ml bottle) Purchased at BC Liquor Store in Fairfield Plaza, Victoria, B.C. For some reason this beer is mixed with the regular Helles and shared a SKU in the BCLS computer system. Pours a gold, highly carbonated body beneath a medium, foamy white head. Nose is bready. Very smooth, good toasty malt with some citrus mid-palate. Above average but not a style I gravitate towards. 7/4/6/3/13

DerWeg (1576) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Plae clear gold with a small silky white head. Sweetly grassy hop and clean malt aroma. Full-on solid malty lager body which relies much on a balanced sweetness and has minty, kemony hops, bittering hops keep the sweetness on keel. Finishes lightly dry. Be great with smoked or Nurnburger Würst. Damn I’m getting hungry now.

Pours clear gold with short lived head. Smell is moderately hopped with a grassy note, and light malt. Taste is balanced with a crisp bitterness, some yeastiness and light malt. More specifically, biscuit, hay, yeast, grass.. Solid and is nicely drinkable.

Crisp with a slight grape juice flavor at the end. This beer is no fun and pretty much a waste of time. Bottle at Abraxas Lounge, Miami Beach.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 A clear and light gold beneath a thin, almost not there head. Pleasing aroma of grass and hop. Taste was sweeter than I’d expected (don’t know why I was thinking that), but pleasing enough. Mouthfeel was rich and smooth. Finish had a bit of hop "bite". A decent beer.
