“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.

Koelschtrinker (17350) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Trockener getreidiger Geruch. Getreidiger und angenehm süßer Antrunk. Sehr hopfig im Mittelteil, wirkt leider auch etwas kratzig. Im Nachgeschmack wirds mir etwas zu süß, der getreidige Geschmack bleibt in richtigem Maße erhalten, dazu kommt ein dezentes Malzaroma, der Nachgeschmack könnte gerne etwas malziger sein. Als Augleich zu den süßen Tönen hätte ich mir außerdem ein bitteres Aroma gewünscht. Test vom 25.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,7,8,7,9,7 - 7,35

harrisoni (17288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
50cl bottle at Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. Clear pale gold, lasting white head. Good lager yeast/malt aroma. I do really like these export beers. Good mouthfull of stunning lager, great lemon, subtle hop. Nice whack of alcohol, but with no obvious alcohol. Not quite hoppy enough to be a pils and I’d like a bit more hop, but this is great stuff, great drinkability. so dirnkable and goodish bite on the end. Went so well with the fish and chips I didn’t want the bottle to finish.
