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.

Mini-Keg @ RBSG 2015. How have I not rated this? Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nice sweet bready malts. Slightly grainy with some biscuit and toasted grains. Light floral hops, maybe a touch soapy. Light fruity esters and some grassy hops. Minimal bitterness. A classic.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter hoppig. Standaard bier, gewoon goed.

5l can (no, I didn’t drink all of it). Fairly clean, malty taste, bready, slightly soapy but also rather crisp. I don’t like this style but this beer is actually quite enjoyable.

Very good beer for almost any occasion. Pleasant smell. Good taste without being super delicious. Small head. Overall a safe choice.

This is top shelf in terms German hellbier. Corn flakes, sweet honey, with a calm and fine hop bitterness in the finish. A nice light bier to have any time. No need to seek it out, but if your choice is between this another Helles, than I’d go with this guy.
