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.

This is a quality beer. No wonder it comes from a country that takes beer seriously (purity laws). Great flavor, color, spice, consistency. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Nice Yellow colour, nice white head. Aroma is metallic, hoppy, a bit fruity. Taste is light sweet with a refreshing bitterness. Palate is fresh, a bit watery with a nice, short, but intense grainy finish. Good one, very "süffig", better than other Müncher Hell beers I tried.

500 ml can. Clear, pale golden color, long-life medium sized off-white head, neutral aroma, light body, decent carbonation, sweet malty and slight toffee taste, simply moderate hoppy bitter palate. Easy-drinkable, but nothing else.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
High quality helles from my personal German favorite, Paulaner. Had this quite often in Munich. It is a lot more hoppy than some of its comepetitors and it’s crisp and well made. A real thirst quencher.
