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.

Yes, this is what a German lager should be. White foam, clear golden color, clean aroma, great malt taste. Not loaded down with caramel malts or offensive hop aroma. A fantastic, everyday beer. Brewed by people who really know what they are doing, this is the standard to be compared to.

Clear golden brew with a modest aroma that is all malty bread and cereal. Lightly sweet initial impression with a richer body than most beers of this style. Very respectable lager that is ideal in warm weather or even with food.

3.5
DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Pale gold with a thin white head. Grass, sulphur and bread are the main aromas. Soft texture with low to moderate bitterness. A very clean and delicate lager. Should be consumed by the liter.

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.

3.3
alobar (3826) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Clear gold color with aroma of corn, bread, and hint of honey. Bread malt flavor with sweet corn and honey sweetness. Nice beer.
