Cloudy straw. Some malt, but decent yeast character. Thin, a little yeasty. Some malt character. A little acidity, some off-notes. This one really doesn’t deliver on the promise of Munich.

Dark yellow colored with medium sized yellow head, slightly hazy appearance. Thin to medium bodied. Handmade yeasty aroma with crispy hops, thin lemon also comes up. Flavor is more dry in yeasty start, lemon, aftertaste dries even more. Decent handmade touch.

Lighter wheaty malt smell. Is this a wheat lager? Hazy deep golden color. White head lasts respectively. Basically it sucks. The Germans need to take lessons from Merica to learn how to cook mash.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy golden orange with stable head. Almost smells like they use malt extract, syrupy like kit beer, no complexity in the aroma and flavors. Sticky, gummy palate. Way too yeasty tasting. A very poor, thin rendition.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice and crisp, and without the burden of rice flavors like almost every other beer in China. This makes up for Tsingdao beng from a German brewer. This was the third liter I had of the night, so my notes have some holes in them. But I'll be back to revise my rating soon.

Pauliner Brauahus are a german pub chain in Shanghai, Ive had this beer a few times while Ive been here, Its lacking in flavour, with a poor flavour lacking bite and taste, and usually served warm even though its supposed to be a lager/beer
Go to Castle Oktober Instead.
