As a Munich Helles Lager, It is no surprise it pours a clear, pale yellow color which is quite inviting.  After developing a nice fluffy whitehead with fast rising bubbles, it moderately dissipates into liquid.  The accompanying aromas are floral hops and bready malts.  The hops are restrained, lending it to a sweeter, bready malt lean.  This Lager exhibits a then, soft mouth feel with medium carbonation.  The finish is short and crisp.  Exactly what you would expect from a traditional Munich Helles.
Hacker Pschorr Muncher Gold is an excellent representation of the Munich Helles style Lager.  It is balanced and has low bitterness.
As if you would not expect it, this beer is an on spot example of a Munich Helles Lager. So, if that is what you are interested in, got for it!

One of the oldest breweries in the world, Hacker Pschorr, delivers and outstands as always! Bravissimo!
This Munich helles is perfectly balanced, well made and satisfying. A preciousness from the first to the last sip.
The very definition of world class.

A fantastic beer, this is what a beer should look, feel, and taste like.
The Germans do many things well, but beer (especially from Munich) are world renowned and for good reason. From Paulaner, to Hofbräu to Löwenbräu, to this one, they get them all spot on.
While this isn’t my favorite Munich beer, this one definitely another great offering from a brewery which has its roots in nearly 600 years of brewing experience.

Side note, and no offense to the hipsters but I’m not sure what is up with all the mediocre reviews. This is what beer is SUPPOSED to be, not a peach mango Nitro IPA, or a Nutella Cinnamon Porter. This is the real deal.

Poured a clear gold with a white one finger soapy head. Light-moderate lacing. Aroma is faint cracker and honey. Light taste of grain, bread and honey with a very light hoppiness on the tail. Moderate carbonation and thickness. Crisp and refreshing. Not the best Helles but good. Drinkable all day long.

Pours a clear gold. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of Euro yeast, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight metallic dryness, and a hint of dough. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with average carbonation. There is an elevated dryness. Tastes of Euro yeast, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight metallic dryness, hint of wheat, hint of floral hops, and a hint of dough. Overall, weak appearance, decent feel and aroma, but good body and blend.

L - pours a nice golden colour with 1-1/2 fingers of thick white foam that drops down after a few minutes but still continues to cover the beer. Lots of lacing in the glass.
S - very subtle, some breadiness, floral.
T - initial honey-like sweetness but quickly balanced with the right amount of hop bitterness.
F - medium carbonation lasting entire duration of drink, very good balance of sweetness/bitterness, not too bitter of an aftertaste, unlike many German beers. Crisp, light.
O - this is a lager that I will keep stocked in my fridge.

L: Pours a brilliantly clear straw yellow with a very small fizzy head and no lacing on the glass.

S: Bready with sweet honey and some grains, so light floral hops in the background, maybe a slight bit of weediness.

T: Grain, some breadiness, and sweet honey with notes of light floral hops and some weediness.

F: Light and crisp, slight bit of prickly carbonation.

O: This is a solid lager, there are better ones out there but still nice.
