“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.

This beer is definetely not what i exptected it to be. Considering its origin, i would think that taste would be a bit more stronger. It feels really light for German lager. That being said, i do enjoy drinking it. While it lacks strong taste and after taste, it is pretty smooth. It has a big white head that tastes great, but unfortunately it disapears fast. Colour is golden, and while it looks really appealing while the head is still present, colour can be a bit unappealing after head has dissapeared. It has perfect balance between sweet and bitter, and it does not bite your tounge like other beers. Almost at times feels little watery. Very conflicted with this beer, at times i love it and yet i can find so many faults with it.

bulldogops (1402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Rating #1269 -04.10.2014. German beer event at Devine. Bold golden pour with a thick, white foam, decent retention. Aroma is strong malty sweetness, caramel, ripe fleshy fruits, cereal grains, mild grassiness. Taste is boldly hopped for a lager, lots of earthy notes, but balance is quite impressive. Crisp, refreshing, and smooth tasting.

One2remeber (215) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle, 01/16. Pils honey sweetness. Herbal hops noticeable, not as prominent as a Pilsner. Light old world barn malt taste. Well balanced where sweetness is kept in check with mild hop bitterness, ivory, green leaf. No big lingering taste, very drinkable.

Difficile à décrire et à distinguer parmi d’autres Lager allemandes, mais elle est très agréable à déguster.

12-oz. bottle. Cereal and honey drive the sweet aroma while minor tones of reserved lemon and orange zest, a marigold-like floral note, a hint of toffee, and fresh-baked pie dough linger in the background. Bright golden straw in color with a nearly creamy head that’s the shade of beaten egg whites. The taste is subdued at first: a sweet bready maltiness is the only flavor to start before notes of wheat crackers and light biscuit become detectable. Touches of herbal honey and a gentle hint of hay float in the mix. There’s hardly any hop bitterness. The body is relatively light with soft carbonation, which is a bit surprising given the amount of nucleation present. A solid, clean Helles.

kajser27 (645) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 20, 2015
Clear, watery yellow colored, medium strong white head, nice lacing, not very lasting. Aroma is of sweet malt, grains, bit honey, some low herbal notes. Taste is moderate sweet malty, grainy, some honey on bread, low herbal bitterness, husky finish. Low to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Nothing special...
