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.

Pale blond color. Light honeyish aroma. Watery and rather dry taste, un-interesting.

Blond color. Light aroma, some honey, corn. Some residual sweetness, but too poor malt and hop.

Straw color with a large head that quickly diminishes. Crisp, clean, and very drinkable. Refreshing. Light malt and hop taste. Finish slightly dry.

Man, this was a tasty German brew. An oat & straw malty aroma that reminded me of alt. This beer looked about as good as a lager can -- intense light gold, very classy graphics, label and logo. Sweet, moderate hopping but well-balanced. Some sunflower seed tones. Good mouthfeel, maybe a little clingy.

Bright golden color. Thin but lingering head. Fruity, malty, slightly hoppy nose. Straight-foreward malty-sweet flavor. Light to medium bodied. A great summer beer.

Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy. Light flavor with a touch of hops. The finish is a little dry and bitter. This would be a good beer on a hot summer day.

Light pour with a pleasent spicy aroma. This was very smooth throughout the drink, and had a nice carbonation level without disturbing the roof of my mouth. Tastes were pretty light, and slightly citrus, but the primary positive quality of this lager was just how smooth it really was.

Pretty good beer. Pours medium head, which goes away pretty quickly, nice flavor and mild hoppy finish.

Let me start by saying I expected a lot more from this beer. The head was decent and the appearance was good. It went down smooth but the after taste was just average. A good beer but better choices at this price.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Aroma kind of skunky mixed with Hallertauer hops. Straw-colored, tightly beaded white head. Not much flavor when it hits my tongue, some light hops. Well-balanced overall with a bitter, dry finish.

THis is a nice, crisp, clean lager. Enjoyable and very easy drinking. Seems a good beer to place between heavier or spicier beers to give the palate a rest/recoop period. Nice, but not extraordinary in my book.
