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.

Draft at Paulaner Beer Garden at Sarona market. Clear yellow golden with a small stable head. Aroma of malts, hay and bread. Sweetish with malty and grassy hops flavors, some bready notes, gentle bitterness. Crispy and refreshing. Decent.

WillemsUrenkel (518) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2014
0,5 l bottle. Clear and light golden in the glass. Big white head. Citrus an low malt at the nose. Tastes malty with a surprising hop bitterness for a Helles. Nearly going to a Pilsener direction.

Ragnampiza (425) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 29, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pale gold, crystal clear, with a small, creamy and moderately persistent bright white head. Lots of grain on the nose, slightly herbal/medicinal, a hint of grass and wet cardboard. Mild toasted malts in the background. Certainly more sweet than bitter, quite astringent, obviously malty with a very subtle floral hoppiness. Sugary and honey-like sweetness in the aftertaste. Not too dry, easy to drink, but nothing else really. Soft to average carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Average.

Oelbas (175) - DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Lys klar strågul med holdbar hvid skumtop. Kun en meget svag duft med antydning af hø. Smagen er slank og forholdsvis tør med svag bitterhed, der fortsætter en en diskret eftersmag. En meget let drikkelig tørstslukker af den gode slags.

massingasetta (244) - München, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014
Von der Optik und dem Aroma gibt es kaum Beanstandungen. Auch die Schaumkrone ist in Ordnung oder leicht darüber. Einstieg ist frisch und hat eine gute Kombination an Säure/Bitterkeit. Der Körper verleirt etwas und hat zu wenig Definition in meinen Augen. Es ist ein anständiges aber nicht sonderlich betontes Münchener Bier. Der Abgang reicht es auch nicht raus. Fazit: Man macht mit dem Bier nichts falsches aber es ist nicht der Brüller. Am unteren Ende der Hellen Top 20.

Kauge (131) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2014
50 cl bottle from Kristiine Prisma in Tallinn (€ 1,85), July 2014. Label says: Münchner Hell; Munich Lager. I reckon it’s the same thing. Pours a clear pale straw, kind of like some old-school pear lemonade. White frothy head, I see how it’s trying hard to stay, albeit not very successfully. Minimal lacing. Nose is very malty with (damp or wet) hay most apparent, herbal; some boiled vegetables there too. It also kind of reminds me of vanilla and lemon biscuits made by the confectionery Kalev. Taste is mostly barley malts, but a good deal of earthy hops too. Medium body, rather active carbonation with some refreshing crispness; finish is mildly bitter, dry; palate a bit watery. Not a fan of this kind of stuff but it ain’t bad either.
