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.

TBone (16088) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled (BB 04/2007). Golden color, decent white head. Fruity malty, slightly cardboardish nose. Medium-bodied. Malty, lightly fruity-sweet, grassy hops. Malty aftertaste. Quite boring hell/premium lager.

Nothing terribly special abou this lager except it is very consistent. Over the years, I’ve never had a bad bottle or can of this brewery’s beer. This original recipe lager is very tasty, but it doesn’t have much lingering back-taste. It kinda leaves the mouth quickly.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Bottle 52F Lager Glass. Light grain aromas of hay and slight just slighty bitter hops. Maybe notes of spicy orange peel, light yeast notes. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden color,with a nice a decent lasting white head, that leaves a bit of lacing. Very light taste, just slighty sour with slight barn like notes, and a little hops. Taste is much light than I had expected. Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation. A good smelling and good looking light beer, in the world of light lagers this is good, but just not my favorite style but, this is a good example of one.

Bottle. An amber coloured pour with an average head. Nice floral hop aroma. Taste is hops and citrus. A hoppy finish with moderate bitterness. Another boring lager.

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2006
1 Pint, 9 oz. Bottle: Clear gold with no head. Malty aromas with a light grape accent. Light flavors of fruit, rapes and yeast. For a lager, it wasn’t too sweet which was nice. Lots of carbonation and refreshingly easy to drink. There really isn’t much flavor in this brew, but it isn’t horrible either.

A good solid choice for those who like Lagers. If you have not had it I would suggest it. A solid, if average, offering. Goes down nice and you have to roll it around the mouth for a second to really sample the hoppy flavors this brew offers. Not too carbonated either, this beer really feels nice in the mouth. One word to describe this beer would have to be, “refreshing”. Serve it ice cold and be prepared to do a little searching with your palette, it will yield a good brew if you take your time with it.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 You expect more from anything from "munchen." it’s a thin, no head lager that resembles a urine sample in appearance but admittedly tastes better. Not the worst thing to pull out of a fridge at a party but probably shouldn’t show up at yours.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle (from Tesco). Light drinkable lager with subtle hay hops but more focused towards the malt. Not bad but I would have prefered more hop presence to round this off.

Ibrew2or3 (8074) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2006
12oz bottle. Clear pure gold color with small white head. Sweet and also grainy malt aroma. Very light tasting beer. The flavors are mild with no off flavors of any kind. Silky smooth maltiness intermingles with noble hop flavor. The finish has a mild lingering hop bitterness. A good refreshing beer.
