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.

Bottle. Poured a light golden color. Low head. Crisp grains and slight hops make for a smooth lager with some nice flavors. Light bodied. One of the better lagers out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia 33 CL. Nel bicchiere è perfettamente limpida con una schiuma abbondante ma poco persistente, il malto si fa sentire nell’aroma e anche nel palato con un leggerissimo amaricato nel finale. Corpo acquoso con una carbonazione alta. Per me è no.

obe83 (62) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 18, 2014
chiaramente industriale, alla vista è giallo limpidissima con una schiuma abbondante ma evanescente. al naso un filo di lievito e niente di più (da una lager nn m aspetto aromi esageratamente esplosivi ma nemmeno una piattezza del genere). In bocca è un filo più presentabile. molto presente in ingresso il malto e un finale lievemente amaricante abbastanza persistente. corpo altamente watery e tante troppe bollicine (maledetta anidride carbonica aggiunta). note unicamente positive....con la birra va giu come acqua (e ti credo) e costa 3,99 una cassa 6 x 33....

Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. The aroma is quite bready. The taste is rather sweet white bread/cereal. The drink ability for this beer is high and it is very refreshing.

corkyrory66 (708) - BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Munich lager de 4,9 % abv. Couleur jaune très très léger. Clarté nette, pure comme la loi de pureté. Bulles très sommaires, juste quelques grosses à l’unité !! Mousse qui n’est qu’un nappage diaphane. Arômes de lager, pils, maïs, houblon. 1ère bouche douce sur du malt clair, pointe de blé. Arrière-bouche tendre, mais plate. 2ème sur la pils avec un houblon de bas niveau. Arrière-bouche de café du peuple. 3ème où le maïs adoucit l’ensemble. La longueur donne un peu de moelleux. L’alcool est du type lager, tout à fait inopérant. En finale on rejoint la pils chinoise. CONCLUSION : une lager qui tient à peu près la route, sans exagérer bien sûr le propos, mais elle a quelques côtés acceptables.
