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.

På flaska på stars and stripes. En hygglig tysk vardagsöl, men inte mer. Hade önskat lite mer av en såpass stor producent.

On tap. Clear golden with consistent white frothy head. Aroma malt, grass, hay. Taste is malty, medium body, sour and dry finish. Pleasant bitterness in aftertaste. Above average German lager.

Golden colour with white head. Aroma of hops, maybe some spices, but the flavours are the same: somehow hoppy, with medium carbonation. drinkable, but thats all.

EKGoldings (616) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at the Paulaner Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Pours brilliantly clear, nice head, bartenders here are careful with fill levels and the foam going to the top of the glass. Clean, easy to drink, perhaps neck and neck with most hell lagers here from the larger breweries.

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Pours a crisp clear golden color with a good white head that holds for about 30 seconds before dissipating. Aroma is malt, hay, grass, light caramel, light hops, and a dry sweet fruit at the end. Taste is malt and grass, a very thin body of caramel, and a barely noticeable hop bitter. Overall not bad, very drinkable for a hot summer day, better than the macros from the states.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 pours clear yellow colour with a white frothy head and nice lacing. lots of citrus, hops, paper. light body; sour, but other than that rather bland. dry hoppy finish, little bitterness. would be refreshing on a hot day, i guess..
