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.

Sampled draught at Dansk Ølfestival.
Pale golden. MAlt aroma. Sweet with notes of sour dough. Dense mouthfeel. Sadly the flavours are dull and th ebeer gives a massproduced, industrial impression.

Golden color with a white head. Malty with slight metallic hoppy notes. Watery and boring.

A run-of-the-mill beer, Paulaner’s lager is not that good, but not that horrible. It has a somewhat soapy, metallic taste, with an even more displeasing, soapy aftertaste. This beer leaves your tongue and palate oily and looking for more. Not that great of an experience, but it didn’t ruin my night either. Hmph. That’s the only way to describe it. An inquisitive hmph, with shrugging shoulders and a slight look of disdain on the face. Hmph.

Bottled. This one had very little going for it in the appearance and aroma department, other than a lot of nice carbonation bubbles. The flavor was somewhat spicy and interesting, but this is otherwise a very forgettable beer.

Tettnanger hops! It’s gotta be Tettnanger as I had just finished up brewing a kölsch with a huge dump of tett in there and then I popped the top on my can (yes, I bought a case of cans of this) of Munchner and got that very same hop aroma. In cans this is wonderful stuff. I think most lagers ought to be distributed in cans unless the brewery is local. This is what lagers are all about, of course it has a light and delicate aroma and taste, of course it’s thirst quenching. There are no off or adjunct flavors in this one.

Thin, watery body. A bit sweet. Lacking character. even when sampled at the Ausschank am Nockherberg.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - APR 23, 2004
Both bottled and on tap. White head, medium existing, hay-yellow body colour, clear. Light aroma, weak hop and malt fragrances. Unexciting flavor, light mouthfeel, poor taste. A boring lager from Germany... God, please let go hop and malt, you must save german macrobrewery befare disaster!

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - APR 22, 2004
Light malt aroma. Golden yellow color with a light white head and a noticeable effervesence. Lightly malty flavor with a noble hop finish that is crisp. Body is medium for a light lager, with appropriate carbonation and a very refreshing finish. Overall, this beer is greater than the sum of its parts.

Pours a good solid shade of "beer" with a large white head that expresses the vainglorious nature of true german pilsener. This represents the first decent German beer that I have had in a month, of which two weeks were spent actually traveling in Germany. Strange. Anyway, tastes great, smooth mohtfeel belies its animated guise! I like this one! Good stuff.

CEZ (399) - Milano, ITALY - APR 2, 2004
[bottle] Pale yellow body and thin, lasting white head. Unremarkable lager aroma (lightly sweet, malty). Pleasant mouthfeel and taste, smooth malt character, with a bitter finish. Hints of bread linger in the aftertaste. A nice, though very simple, lager. Not my favorite.
