A - Bright, clean gold. Inviting bubbles, a very active crown of white lager foam. Looks like a great golden lager from first sight.

S - Noble hops, crisp, golden notes of biscuity malt. Sweet, honey-like. Smells similar to a pilsner but less sharp.

T - Delicious! smooth flavor, also similar to a pilsner, but with a round malty balance behind it all. Very balanced, very intriguing.

M - light and drinkable, not too carbonated. Thicker than a pilsner, but still feels similarly refreshing.

O - The best thing I can compare this to is a pilsner with an emphasis on balance. Same charms, but less hop-oriented and more well-rounded. A surprisingly delicious lager.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A- straw yellow with a finger of white head. phenomenal lacing

S- clean malt with barely a hint of hops. not much there

M- chewy texture with nice level of carbonation. very thick for the style

T- hops are aggressive and are present throughout. hops are spicy and grassy. considering the level of hops, it's still a fairly malty beer. finishes slightly dry.

O- a classic battle between hops and malt. i'm glad neither came out too dominant; this is really a beer to behold.

Pours a clear golden with a nice malty aroma. Tastes refreshing and pure with just the right amount of hops and maltiness. No adjunct or off-flavors detected. Quenches thirst, but has a nice backbone; superlative dinner beer. Not a complex tsunami of taste, but this style is not designed for that. An excellent choice for playing music, telling stories and drinking all night.

This beer has the flavor I taste on my mind's tongue when I reminisce about travels through Germany.

Clear gold, large diminishing fizzy white head. Smells sweet - honey and plastic, like many Canadian shitty lagers. Taste is simple, and honey-sweet, but floral and grassy with no crappy adjunct flavours - pretty nice, really. Light, mildly syrupy body, decent carbonation and a quick finish - very summery and drinkable.

A - Not much head to this but it does make for a good lace ring. Color is a semi-hazy golden yellow.

S - Sweet malts and hops in the nose with mild corn.

T - Fairly clean, hops seem to be sweeter than most Helles lagers I had had but it does have a hoppy finish with a slight twang of alcohol. Not bad.

M - Light to medium in body very easy to drink.

Overall a great German beer with a smooth body and nice flavors pretty much on par for the style.

From a variety pack. 11.2 oz bottle labeled Munich Gold, gotta be the same thing though. Pours very pale yellow, almost like an American lager but with a more substantial and lingering head. Reminds of the more "mainstream" European lagers, such as Harp. A fresh smell that I can't quite place me. The taste reminds me of a Czech lager, nothing to any extreme but all very crispy and clean. Although I can only seem to compare this to other beers, it is still able to carve a niche as a solid beer on its own, albeit not outstanding in most respects.
