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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2006
From a 1 pt. 9 oz. euro brown bottle with a produced on date in lower right hand corner of front label. Poured a clear pale yellowish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, very minimal amount of sticking. Aromas of toasted grains and bready, a light yeastiness and spices, hints of a fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and a crisp, velvety smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. A nice premium, Helles lager taste, toasty and bready with a touch of dry crackers, spicy, lemony hops, a good soft crispness from the hops, and a dryish malty finish. Another good lager from Paulaner, tasty and balanced, deserves at a place in your refrigerator.

nigredo (37) - Santiago de Chile, CHILE - SEP 12, 2006
Bottled version. Made by CCU in Chile under license. Pale golden color. Artificial carbonatation. White and relative slow-collapsing head. Acceptable lacing. Vage hoppy smell. Some skunky and traces. Watery. Weak cereal taste and a very slighty bitterness of hops. A bit sweet aftertaste.

asheft (2905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2006
[bottle from SAQ] Noble hops and malty malt fill the nose in a perfectly balanced crispness. Crystal bright straw with a fizzy top that doesn’t last long. The flavour is everything that the aroma promised: modestly sweet malt that tastes like it just came from the farm complimented by a pleasant, spicy hops flavour and gentle bitterness. My only complaint is a more than detectable taste of ethanol that penetrates the gentle flavour. Quite a bit of body for such a small beer. Could use a tad more carbonation too.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Pours pale golden, with white film for head. Sweet malt scent, clean maltyness with a light & cheap hop finish. Simple, boring, mass-produced.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2006
Pours a clear golden color with small and big bubbles goinf upwards and a thin, bubbly white head. Good aroma of bread crust and crisp malt. The hops are mostly undetectable in the aroma but are more present in the flavor where the noble hops are joined by a good crisp malt and bread crust, there is also some mild citrus. The body is medium and oily while the carbonation is gentle. This a very pleasant and competent lager.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle. Clear, deep straw yellow. Poured a fine tight bead that lasted a reasonable time for a light beer. Earthy spicy Euro hop bouquet quite evident in nose. Low malt as per style. Flavour was the same with a distinct Eur hop spciness. Could have used a bit more malt character to balance the hops, came off just a bit to dryish and thin at the finish, even for a Helles. Good drinking beer on a hot day after a long bike ride.

ghawener (1553) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle: Nicely hoppy a good every-day beer; good specimen of it’s class. Found this one in Costa Rica on a business trip.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 Crisp gold colour with a small tight head. Moderate aroma. Clean lightly hopped flavour. A good session beer. Goes well in the heat, and probably the cold. Reminds me of bread with a sweet finish.
