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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Expected appearance with nice head. Aroma is lightly malty. Flavor is also lightly malty, very clean, no sulfur of skunk (which is usually what I look for). Tis not bad! ARRR.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2003
THis lager pours a yellow gold color with small lasting head. Sharp spicy aroma, some hops, some malts. More spice and malt in the flavor, with a slightly bitter finish. Not a bad lager.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Well it is pretty good for a lager, anyway. Aroma is hoppy/spicy and to my nose a bit purfumy. Appearance is typical lager, golden, though this lager does retain a little head and has some very light lacing. Flavor is little spicy, with a dash of malt, pretty tasty for the style. Be glad to drink more.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2003
Good, but not great. Another Euro lager with the requisite hop aroma, pale body and reasonable hop/malt balance.

[Note: Originally I had this under the wrong beer] One of my favorite beers, on par with Spaten. Nice and smooth. You'll love it.

I haven't had a larger in a looooong time and this one hit the spot. It's an above average larger and good for a hot day.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2003
From the abyss of a much-needed ratings drought comes this above-average, malty lager by Paulaner. Blond body, with a thin white head. Crisp, fruity aroma. Flavor is fruity/malty with a touch of earthy hops. Certainly better than most American lagers.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Pale yellow body with few bubbles, small white head. Light malty aroma. Flavor is not that big, as I would expect from a lager, but it has a nice touch of grassy hops. Again, I'm not a lager fan, but this was pretty good.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Medium gold color, the head was moderate and it had a nice malty and floral aroma. This was a very tasty beer with good lacing, malty and hop spicy, well balanced and with a smooth finish, a little bitter. Well done!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 Pale straw-yellow and quick-fading sudsy white head. Fragrant German hops, light malts, and yeast, which together form that quintessential musky lager smell. Clean, hoppy taste and perfumy finish. Well-rounded and very good as far as lagers go. A nice casual beer that pairs well with a casual meal.
