COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ritzn (199) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
Aroma is really harsh. Some moist-grassy hops and earthy cheese. Taste is mostly water (sorry) with a little bitterness in the end. However a full body with well-tempered carbonation. All in all: not my favourite.

Gee-gosh-golly, wish this was available in 12-pak format (like the Hefe-Weizen, Marzen and Wiesn are) because this here is a really easy beer to enjoy. This is what I suspect some pale lagers currently manufactured would someday like to be like, or should be.

Oleg85 (78) - Yaroslavl, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Bought as "Paulaner Münchner Hell". Bottled May 2015. L: Pours clear pale color between yellow and green. Thick two fingers white head disappears quickly. Carbonation is low. S: Tender warm smell of fresh baked bread, baked pork, with some hops on the background. T: Rich taste of dough and oats with nice hoppy aftertaste. F: Fits the style. O: Very good helles, rich in taste and refreshing. I’d highly recomend to try it.

midovark (329) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2016
0.5 l can from Germany. Beautiful sparkling golden color with thin head. Hoppy, refresing aroma & taste. Medium bodied, yet easily drinkable with an average carbonation. Relatively long finishing. One of my favoite lagers.

Gezapft in einem Münchner Restaurant, goldgelber Körper mit schmalen Schaumrand, sehr mild, leicht bitter, leichtes getreidiges Aroma. Okay, aber austauschbar

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2016 500 ml bottle. Pale golden colour. Very good beer - light, yeasty, bready and fruity, with nice finish. Refreshing. Makes you wanna drink more and more.
