Beer Review – Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold

Beer Review – Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold

As a part of a mixed six from Wegman’s, I picked up a bottle of Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold. Hacker-Pschorr has been a leading brewer in Bavaria since 1417 or nearly a century before the enactment of the Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516. Additionally, their brewing process had remained virtually unchanged for over 580 years and their beers are not labeled “For Export Only”. So, the beer that you drink is identical to the beer sold in Munich. Today, Hacker-Pschorr is one of the six brewers allowed to serve its beer in Munich during Oktoberfest and is renowned for their Weisse beer.

Here is what Hacker-Pschorr has to say about its Munich Gold:

Cloudy golden amber color with a nice lacy head. Praline, clay and delicate grain cereal aromas follow through on a smooth, supple entry to a dry medium body with accents of nectarine and golden raisin. Gold was the first Hacker-Pschorr beer exported to the U.S. starting in 1865 and was honored with an award at the International Exhibit in 1876 in Philadelphia.

I found the Munich Gold to be…

  • Appearance: Gold with a quickly dissipating foam and good lacing.
  • Aroma: Sweet malt, dough and hops.
  • Taste: A little flat, well balanced, refreshing with a smooth finish.
  • ABV: 5.5%

I really liked this beer. The Munich Gold was nothing fancy; nothing overwhelming; just a good, solid beer.
