When the Original Münchner was brewed for the first time at the end of the 19th Century, it was a spectacular success. With its hoppy taste, subtle, light and elegant, it becomes ever popular. Today the Paulaner Original Münchner is the best sold Münchner Hellbier (lager beer) in the world and Paulaner's No. 1 export beer in over 30 countries with its wonderfully subtle, spicy, naturally hearty taste.

De una botella de 500ml. Muy pálida para mi gusto. Ligero sabor a Malta y ligero aroma a lúpulo. Cerveza aburrida, esperaba más. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the tap at Paulaner am Dom (Frankfurt). Pale, yellow lager with white head. Quite weak and watery with little taste. Disappointed.

Kristálytiszta,aranysárga színű enyhe habkoronával a tetején ami hamar el is illant!Egy kellemes tiszta ízvilág mindenféle kellemetlen utóíz nélkül!A lager tipusú sörök nem tartoznak a kedvenc söreim közé de ez könnyedén csúszott!Elmegy....

Alengrin (1350) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
The best known Münchener helles, since the early 20th century. Light yellowish white, regular, dense but eventually opening foam, light golden blonde colour, clear. Soft and pure malt sweetness in the nose, chamomille, honey, biscuit, flowery hops. Clean and crisp malt taste, light sweetness, tingling like mineral water, the good quality of the brewing water is clear and plays an important role in lagers like this; elegant, mild spicy hop bitterishness in the finish with a sourish touch. Well-made, appetizing and thirst-quenching, unambitious like any good Helles should be. Exemplary for its style.

Inbreak (2072) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
01.08.2014, tap @ Leopold’s (Paulaner Keller), Hamburg:
Nice creamy longlasting head, light straw colored. Aroma is slightly sweet, light malts, butterscotch, grass, sugar, hay, hints of winegum. Taste is slightly sweet, light malts, hay, weeds, paper, cereal. Medium bitterness, slightly dry grainy mouthfeel. So boring.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light gold. Nose is hay, cracker malt, floral. Flavour is understated delicate floral and cracker malt. Slightly on the sweet side. After so many cheap lagers recently this really hits the spot.

Pleasant honey nose. Bready cereals, marshmallow, clean finish. Nice balance for a classic German brew.
