“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.

STraw yellow color with notes of malt on the palate and then dominant through the finish. Not complex but nice drinkable beer.

Dorqui (2176) - 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.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of light noble hops, pale malts, and a hint of honey. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small to medium-sized, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of noble hops, grains, pale malts, light bread, and a hint of honey. Light to medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, slight noble hop, grain, and bread finish is lightly dry.

VertBaconStrips (2309) - Blerkablerka, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
Dumped out into glass. Produced a massive fluffy white cap (twice!). Interesting thing here - I m watching it shrink.... maybe it’s another flashback. Medium gold brew, lots of bubbles. The aroma is average and expected: lots of sweet grains, dull macintosh apples (no peel) and ample hops. Well rounded. The taste is quite grassy with a lot of hops and a slight tartness. Quiet clean tasting. Nice soft carb, surprisingly meaty middle, hops throughout make this very enjoyable for a boring beer. Slight sourness throughout with notable bitterness being a constant. Meh.

500 ml bottle, unexpected find at TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma: Pleasant cereal/grain with some light citrus fruitiness, a little biscuit, a touch of hay and grass. Palate: Medium body, fairly full effervescence. Flav.: Similar to the nose, some honey, lightly floral, still a good amount of grain/cereal, light biscuit; dry with a little bitterness.

A very tasty quaffer.

Had US Version Munich Gold. Overall a nice beer, easy drinking with a good balance of malt sweetness, and mild hop bitterness as you would expect from a Munich Helles. However nothing special here, that flavors are pretty standard for german lagers, not much different then the mass market German imports (i.e., Becks). I might keep some in the fridge for after mowing the lawn.

Bottle from TBS- A sparkling deep gold, pours a frothy and sticky white cap. Biscuity nose has hay, lemon, some cookie dough. Sweet biscuit malt with lemon, grassy hops, somewhat fruity. Nice carbonation leaves beer with a creamy feel. A good session Helles for the summer.

Ungstrup (34210) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw, and the flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a bitter strawy finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Pours golden with fast disapearing white head. Average mouthfeel, malty aroma. Easy drinking, a little toasty but looking for something more interesting usually.
