This was a beer that I picked up for an online beer class. I saved one for review purposes. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Munich Helles Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Intense golden yellow – Full-bodied, mild taste
Very similar in taste to our Münchner Hell, our ‘Munich Gold’ has a slightly stronger original gravity and malty note that has earned it a strong following. It starts with a full-bodied yet smooth taste, then comes a slightly more bitter note that ends in a spicy finish. A real taste sensation for true beer connoisseurs! Barley from the Swabian Alb and the Upper Palatinate are the perfect ingredients for this timeless classic. Since 1417, Hacker Pschorr stands for traditional Bavarian brewing. The quality beers of Hacker-Pschorr are all brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law and contain only hops, malt and water.”
Random: I only have about 20 more discs on my Netflix queue. I’m watching WWII in HD right now.
This beer poured with a two finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the pint glass. The body was a clear, dark straw yellow with high carbonation visible. The nose had lots of sweet malt and caramel to it, with a crisp note of light grass. The taste was really clean and crisp with some sweet caramel malt and then a touch of skunk. The body was light with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with some sweetness. The beer was $1.50 per bottle, which broke down to $.12 per ounce. This beer was alright, but this style has never really done much for me. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.
