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.

kvnstfrd (32) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Clear, golden-yellow with a one-inch head. Good carbonation is clearly evident. Mild hop and faint malt aromas. Hop and malt balance is great. Very clean and crisp, but overall flavor is a very weak, even for its style. The mouthfeel is light but suits the style well, I suppose. Not terrible, but not impressive, either.

MRMedellin (280) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - JAN 6, 2017
Clear golden beer with standar carbonation white head, dough aromas and caramel notes are perceived, the beer flavor itself is sweet and the maltiness is maybe quite high. Sadly no hops are perceived, which actually increase the sweetness and the alcoholic aftertaste.

I was gifted a cold pack of 6 this morning of these. Made my mouth water seeing them. danke X 2,016. This is a highly drinkable, enjoyable and unencumbered bier. Forgot to mention, I gave 2 of the six to another lover of beer on the way home. Good discussion ahead when we meet again. This is what beer is all about, oft’times.
