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. 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.

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.

very solid mouthfeel, surprised at how thick it felt. Very long lasting head, aroma left little to be desired. not bad tasting, rich flavour. A refreshing drink

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2006
Clear golden lager with a spritzy bead and metallic aroma. Insipidly malty and watery with only the vaguest trace of Pils-like bitterness. Possibly very true to the pale Munich style, but could easily be any one of a million interchangeable gassy bland lagers. Tastes like cheap canned lager, out of a bottle. Not one to seek out again.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2006
Light bright golden colour with a light foamy white head. The aroma is grassy and crisp with a light touch of sugar. The lightly bitter body contains a semi-sweet malt presence and a crisp leafiness. Not a bad lager in my opinion, but fairly generic.

zombywoof (460) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bread and malt aroma and a hint of hops. A solid german lager balanced between sweet and bitter, simple, straight forward with a hint of spice. Dry finish. Not fantastic but still a good brew for a KC Chiefs pre season game.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2006
Clear golden-yellow body with a short lived white head. A bit bready with some pilsner-ish hops on the nose. Taste is bready malt, floury, honey and some faint crisp hops. The soft carbonation makes it feel even more bland. By premium lager standard this is probably above average but by beer standard I find it slightly below average. I usually find the words Premium Lager and Hell to be somewhat synonymous.

This is a lager? Well if so, then it’s an awesome one - very mild, no traces of alcohol, well balanced. Soft fruity notes, so typical of the brewer are also present. Good
