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.

Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear pale yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have sweeter malts, grass, mild citrus and florals, basic but not terrible.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma is dry grain with some lemon. Mild. The taste has a grain flavor as well with some mild bitterness. Pretty tame. The texture is fizzy with moderate carbonation. It’s fine.

Bottle @ White Horse, Parsons Green. Pours clear gold with white head. Enjoyed with some German salami which really brought out the sweetness of this beer. Before that, the hops seemed quite tame and passable. On it’s own, quite a boring lager. With salami, very much improved!

500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas of cooked vegetables, hay, cereal. Taste had a light spice note. Crisp, clean finish. Good, for what it is.

Bottle. Clear, pale, no head. Not much aroma, smells like fresh spring water (close to nothing) with a hint of malt. Light sweet taste. Light body, with slightly oily texture, medium carbonation. Overall felt like drinking a good quality water with a hint of beer. I liked it, but it didn’t feel like a proper beer, could be excellent for those hot summer days.
