COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Hy-Vee Liquors poured into lager glass - Pours gold with a 2 finger off white head and very lively carbonation; Malt, hops, light caramel and something I simply can’t distinguish to the nose; Malt, bread, very light hops, some spice on the initial taste; Bready, lightly spicey backtaste; Good carbonation that doesn’t get in the way, medium-full palate; Bottle is labeled Original Munich, obviously the English translation. Overall, not too shabby. I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. Drinkable. Doesn’t assault you with flavor, just kind of refreshes you. Nice when you’re just looking for a decent beer to quench your thirst. Price to quality ratio is a bit lopsided in my region though. Not the best from Paulaner, but definitely nothing to pitch down the drain!

This beer was very disappointing especially in its price range. It poured and had a watery appearence which was consistent with its taste. Head looked very carbonated. Not a good one. The Miller light draft I had earlier in the night at b dub’s was much better than this.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle. Typical malty aroma. Extremely clear with a thin white head.Good carb. Smooth texture, but a bit dull on taste. Delicate bitterness. Pleasant to drink but nothing special.

Slightly sweet malty aroma some DMS from pils malt, noble Spalt, saaz,Haleetaur, Tettnagner aroma...of of the four or two. Grain and malt dominate taste with slight hop bitterness, 16-22 IBU. Malty but not fully attenuated. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

USCMustangman (41) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with little head. Light aroma of hops. Very subtle flavor of hops with a crisp finish. Not a lot of flavor but a nice, very drinkable beer. Definately a beer i wouldn’t mind drinking on a hot summer day.
