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.

hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Pale, golden in color with small quickly diminishing head. Aroma is malt, slightly sweet with notes of floral and sourdough bread. Flavor is slightly sweet with floral notes. A good beer indeed.

Bottle. Caramel aroma notes, pale straw colour, somewhat faint hoppy and minerally background flavour, quite a pleasant lager

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle from Tesco. Pale straw coloured lager with a big fluffy white head. Malty aroma with hints of breakfast cereal, wafer biscuit and honey. Prickly carbonation upfront with soft, sweet malt, ice cream wafers, cereal and a slight sharp lemon hop finish. A good quality German lager but not outstanding.

rw4244 (134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2006
Pint, off tap, at The Clifton, Bristol. Translucently clear green-copper gold colour. Aromas of freshly cut grass, accompanied by vanilla and caramel. Good pils/lager flavour, metallic, perhaps slightly sweet and hoppy. A faint bitter finish. I found this beautifully smooth and refreshing to drink - a fine example of German Lager.

stoutchap (422) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Middle of the road premium lage. Piured pale gold, quickly dissapating foamy white head. Smooth flavor, very little hops. Strong for water, weak for beer.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Pours a yellow color, with aromas of fruit and yeast. Goes down fairly smooth. A bit boring, but nothing wrong with it.

Bottled. I was a little concerned since the 6-pack I bought had some dust on it. It had a very hoppy and malty scent to it. A little too much carbonation in my opinion. Paulaner has grassy hops, fruity aftertaste (possibly citrus or banana). Has a faint bitter finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink with. Paulaner Munich Hell could be my standard German lager! Way better than Beck’s and Warsteiner!

jason (1821) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle. No stand out aroma. Appearance is a typical premium lager appeal. Flavor is crisp with a sweet hoppy taste to it and mild bitters. Goes down smooth and can make you wish for another one.

Clear fizzy yellow color with a medium creamy white head. Sweet grainy aroma and a stale grain and corn flavor

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 2, 2006
Very clear, golden-yellow body with some bubbles rising from bottom of glass to surface. Head is thick, white, largely-bubbled, and quick to dissipate. Aroma is fresh grass, lager yeast and slight banana ester; soft, but luckily nothing offensive. Taste is full and strong, carbonated, yet thin bodied on the tongue. Tastes of fruit, malt, yeast, pepper, and a bit of hops. All in all, this is a fine example of a lager, but as its German, its not so suprising. For a macro-brew, this kicks ass. Sampled from a 350ml can, purchased at "Lider Mart" in Arica, Chile.
