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.

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.

Schiuma discretamente persistente, al naso é debole con lievi note malate, in bocca invece é gradevole con un bel finale floreale luppolato.

mkel07 (4037) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Wine Emporium 270515. Not what I’d call a killer beer but certainly not a dud either. Good body and there is some substance to it.

TedE (402) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
500ml bottle into glass. Slightly sweet malt nose. Pale amber with solid two finger white head. Gentle carbonation. Medium sweetness, quite flat in the mouth. A touch of bitterness gives way to papery cardboard. Easy drinking but run of the mill German lager really.

Jado (635) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2015
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden colour with a thin white head and light carbonation. Aromas are light but some crackers, lemon, cut grass and pepper. Taste is gentle fruit up front a bit like a fresh pear before a crisp, grassy herbal note comes through. Light finish as expected with a gentle fruity aftertaste. Restrained but elegant and a good example of the style.

Bottiglia 50cl, comprata al supermercato e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma abbastanza persistente. Attacca mielosa e chiude amarognola. Non male ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

allmyvinyl (5784) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear straw gold, thin white head. Aromas of corn, malt, distant lemon. Taste has a light spicy bitterness, more pale malt. Sweet finish. Preferred the Münchner Hell!

obguthr (4451) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2015
Yeasty barley nose, cashews, sweet. Crystal clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Trademark sweetness of a foreign lager, yeasty malt flavor. Finishes a little papery. Light to medium body, easy carbonation, somewhat creamy. Much sweeter than other German helles, which makes it easily approachable. This beer brewed for export shows that it has been intentionally dumbed down for that purpose.
