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.

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 (375) - 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..

Uma lager agradável porém sem maiores atrativos. Dourada, espuma pouca e levemente spicy

Keg in a bar in Geneva as ’Paulaner’. I assume it was this, but may rerate at a later date. Usual standard lager looks. Not much in the way of flavour. Light spice and clean finish. Bland.

Barva zlatá. Pěna držící. Vůně příjemná sladová. chuť vyvážená, výrazné sladovépozadí, hořkost střední, ale dlouze doznívající. Slušné pivo....
