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.

Draft - Really light and crystal clear beer. Slight bready smell, reminds me of the zoo. Tastes a little like bread as well. Has a sweet flavor to it. Pretty strong banana taste to it. Clean on the palate.

Melkumyan (4) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 30, 2017 does not count
Aroma is very light, reminds of a beautiful Bavarian village. You can feel nice and gentle notes of fresh hay and a sweet smell from the barley fields. The purest gold colour is accompanied by very soft carbonation.The taste is too pure I guess, it is too gentle, almost silky. You can feel hops, corn and sweet malt. Just a small bit of a well-timed bitterness in the end. To conclude, very decent pale lager. I’d prefer it sometime in the evening, maybe with dinner, not the type of beer to waste by cooling yourself.

alobar (3784) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2017

geolgau (238) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle. Aroma is bread, malty, some grassy hops. Taste is a bit sweet, malty and grainy. Nothing special, but better than standard.

2.8
Towey1989 (2820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of bready malts, honey, a hint of apple and subtle herbal hops. Taste of bready malts, some honey, slight apple, a hint of pear and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweetish, honeyed, herbal bitterness in the finish. Quite a sweet lager with honey and apple been quite dominant. Ok but not what I want in a German Helles.
