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.

11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear light golden not a lot of head and not much lacing. Aroma is mostly bread, some light citrus notes. Nice and balanced taste starts sweet and finishes in a refreshing slightly bitter way. Quite drinkable.

ronaldtheriot (1707) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, very bubbly, gold appearance, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of honey malt, sweet biscuit, and grassy hop oils. Taste is of sweet malt, biscuit, honey, grass, and low-level bitterness. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold finishes smooth and crisp. RJT
