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.

Drake (13148) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Labeled as "Munich" Gold. Pours a clear golden color with lots of visible carbonation. Thin fizzy white head. Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malty notes. Taste is lightly toasted malts, grassy hops and light fruity notes. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Not comparable to an American Lager. Citrussy and light. Very drinkable. But when I think German Beer, this one was pretty weak.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2009
Pours a very light yellow with almost no head at all. Aroma is of wet hay. Taste is thin and lacking complexity. Grassy hops, slightly lemony with a tart finish and very little malt backing. This is a passable German helles but by no means the best I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 In bottle; good solid lager. I find this beer very easy drinking and keep it as a staple in my beer fridge year round. As well, when shared with friends, they seem to quite enjoy it.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
Yellow-gold brew with fine and frothy white cap, dissipates gradually with good lacing. Aroma is lemon-zest hops, granny-smith apples and a touch of pale bready malt. Flavor is sweet and grassy with a hint of tartness, subacid fruits and bitter grass. Palate is crisp and clean with a pleasant and consistent effervescence. A solid helles from a great German brewery.

notalush (5774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Pours a hazy gold - small, soapy lace - aroma of grassy, noble hops, moderate honey sweetness, clean maltiness, moderate bread/yeast - clean, crisp, herbal, moderately bitter - just a touch of sweetness - moderate yeasty flavor - a tiny bit of tartness late - dry, herbal hops come back around for the finish - fairly clean and refreshing, but not up there with the best of the style.

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
An okay beer. very little aroma besides slight skunky hops and grass. Pour is golden and clear with a medium sized white-ish head. Sweet and light with a slight sourness. Light bodied and very fizzy with very little finish. Overall, okay.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear golden/yellow body with a thin quickly fading white head. Aroma is malts, straw pretty much what I expected. Flavor is crisp malts, grass, light hops with a faint fruity finish. Lemony finish light mouthfeel. Nice simple easy drinking beer. Type of beer I could see myself drinking throughout the night in a pub.
