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.

I was hit with a huge whiff of DMS upon adding this brew to a glass, which only abated slightly throughout the drink. Mouthfeel was slightly slick and pleasantly spritzy. Taste was a mix of cream corn and slight maltiness, with a nice drying bitterness which tailed a bit in the throat. The color was a typical pale gold as found in other similar beers. I would buy again if put to it.

Outstanding lager with a hint of spice to it. Doesn't finish dry at all and goes down very smooth. had mine in a .5 L bottle. light hoppiness and very good beer with sausage and saurkraut.

can on the train from munich to innsbrook: cant tell you about the color but im sure its clear and golden-yellow. bready malt aromas with medium bodied palate, soft malty character and tangy hop finish. nice. makes train rides very enjoyable. this is one of my favorite in this style. Prost!

I'm not a big pils/lager fan but this isn't too bad. I prefer it to the normal Japanese macro's that I've already grown tired of but I'd rather have their Oktoberfest. Worth a try for all and I'm sure it will appeal to those that prefer crisp lagers.

I've never been a huge fan of lager (except pilsner). The beer has a faint yeasty smell, and a white creamy head that diminishes into lace. It is clear, pale yellow in color with a faint flavor of hops, yeast and very faint wheat. Needs more body.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2004
clear golden, thick frothy bubbly white head, good carbonation, lots of tiny bubbles. the nose is very sweet and alcohol is present with some hops. Medium body with lots of (I wanna say yeast or wheats?!) and just a dab of hops. Qute watery and light.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a clear, watered down piss-yellow liquid with a small amount of virgin white head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma is of - now here's something - a used up urinal cake with faint straw, grass, vegetal tendencies. Flavor is of watered down straw, grass, vegetal, even soapy. Not all that offensive, but definitely a disgusting, crappy yellow beer that resembles a weak lager filtered through a urinal cake. Sampled at 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Poured with 75% head, a classic lager look. Sweet malty aroma, almost sugary. Solid sweet malt flavors in a silky smooth beer. Ah ... I need a pretzel.

I find it hard to differentiate between Helles' and this beer is no exception. Really clear, good white head. Nicely malty with a bit of herbal hop aroma and spicy hop flavour. Same as any good Helles really but a good beer's a good beer.
