“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.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2017 Enjoyable lager, golden in colour. Light in flavour, nicely quaffable, would be good in the sun

Pyobon (1377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2017
(Bottle) Pours clear amber yellow with good white head. Aroma is cereal, bread with hints of grassy hops and something sweet, maybe pear drops. Medium body with good carbonation. Taste is unexceptional - there’s bready malt to start, some more complex sweeter notes appear, but the taste rather fades out to a somewhat watery flat finish. Certainly drinkable, but not great.

cmacklin (1067) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
500ml can. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a small, fizzy, short lived, white head that fully dissipates. Sweet aroma of bready malt, corn and light apple. Sweet flavour of biscuit malt, caramel, corn and lemon with a crisp, dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. A good Helles.

Tessic (1131) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2017
This lager poured a clear yellow with a minimal soapy head. Minimal lacing. Scents include dry cat food, toast and malt. First swig was quite malty with flavours of malt, cereal and cat food. Finish is slightly toasty with lingering maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nurmis (575) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2017
0,5l bottle. Pours golden with white lacing. Sweet bready malts, hint of herbal hops. Light bitter finish. Good for its style, nothing wrong with it.

radassace (214) - SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2017
500ml flip top bottle from M&S. Pours a light gold with no head. Nose is bready malt with some citrus lemon. Taste is bready, grainy, straw, lemon citrus and a malty slightly bitter finish. Smooth, refreshing and pleasant. Just weird that this beer had no head whatsoever, might just have been this bottle.

hrabren (1143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2017
0.5 l bottle from Konzum Radnička, Zagreb. Shared with Mirko. Clear golden, small white head. Light malty, faint grain aroma. Light sweet. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, moderate grainy finish. No value at all.

UXO (1806) - CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet grainy pale malt, citrus, berry, grassy hay. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp off-dry mild bitter finish. (3/5) I’m not generally a fan of lagers, and I left any reverence for the Reinheitsgebot behind a long time ago - but this is quite pleasant. No hint of adjunct sickliness, just clean pale malt and aromatic noble hops. As Helles Lagers go, this has got to be near the top of the heap. Now, if only I had a big pretzel to go with it, or maybe a pork hock… (13/20)
