Pours a pale golden color. Pleasant smell, not floral, generic lager-y. Somewhat bland taste. Good mouthfeel but lacks substance, on the watery side as it lingers. Not too much head but it remains for a while.

Nothing too exciting, and no distinct flavors stand out but very decent overall.

Fixed brats and sauerkraut with very high hopes. Had one taste and switched out for a Fuller's. The Munich Gold bland all the way around. The appearance was not deep enough, very little smell to discern, and mouthfeel watery. Perhaps an old keg? Or perhaps too light for the dinner pairing. Will try a heavier German beer for pairing with this meal next time.

This beer is presented beautifully in the old fashioned swing top bottle. It pours with an appetising foamy head that sticks around to the end of the drink and leaves very good lacing. Carbonation is medium. The smell is very pleasant and typically German. It has a herbacious hop aroma with just a hint of mint and is similar to a German pilsener in this respect. The taste is a masterclass in balance and refinement. There is a suggestion of honey and lemon with a slight pilsener style bitterness and satisfying bready malt notes. It feels great in the mouth and slides down very easily. I could happily drink several of these in a row.

The only downside is that it is hard to find and tends to be over 3 British pounds here in the UK. Still that's no more than the pints of bad lager available in our pubs and therefore a good argument for not going out! I would describe this as a great benchmark for the lager style. There are enough subtle complexities here to keep things interesting. This bavarian classic doesn't have the wow factor of some IPAs or stouts or even some of the better craft lagers but it is well balanced and a great beer that simply tastes like a standard lager ought to. Recommended.

My mark out of one hundred would be 87.
