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.

eunck (142) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
Very clear light golden beer with average white head. Grainy/bready malts dominate the aroma, even a bit cardboard. Herbal hops in the background. The texture is a bit too thin, the body a bit light. Yet the beer lacks the smooth drinkability that other beers of this style have. I think the original is beat, others are better!

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2016
Can from Seoul Plaza. Aroma cardboard, raw grainy, rusty iron (metallic). Clear golden colour, moderate white head, long retention. Taste is very empty and watery, only lightly parading the off-flavours, cardboard and iron. Light bitterness and very light grassy sharp hops flavour. Thin bodied and almost moderate carbonation. Definitely nothing I would order again.

Very nice lager. I find it very hoppy for the style, which I liked. Refreshing and drinkable.
