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.

Slaktmasken (70) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2015
På flaska på stars and stripes. En hygglig tysk vardagsöl, men inte mer. Hade önskat lite mer av en såpass stor producent.
