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.

A guzzler. Very refreshing on a hot summer day if you want real beer, not fizzy beer flavored water. Great for style, perhaps a guilty pleasure?

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Clear golden, large white head. A little bready, malty, and with some leafy hops. Crisp and refreshing, lighter bodied. Pretty nice.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2005
A very hearty and satisfying brew. The only thing missing is the Oompa band and the hot German chics in short skirts.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Bottle. Crystal clear yellow beer with a thin white head. Persistent ring wit minimal lacing. Grainy sweet aroma with a noticeable grassiness. Tastes lightly bready sweet with a light and spritzy mouthfeel that finishes dry and slightly spicy. I think subtle is the key word here, not too much to think about. Clean, light, and refreshing. Goes down with a quickness.

Geiserich (3621) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2005
Malty, light grainy nose. Golden color, foamy head. Grainy malt flavor, straw, few hops. Weak and boring.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Draught, Paulaner Beer Garden, Bangkok

Clear golden with thin head. Aroma of buttery biscuits, earthy hops. Clean palate with slightly crisp hops backing up simple bready pale malts. Finish is moderate in both length and sweetness.

shrubber85 (8772) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. Wheat malt aroma - a bit of corn as well. Yellow color with moderate head. Light malt flavor - nothing distinctive with good carbonation. Paulaner makes good, reliable beers - this isn’t spectacular but is very nice. One of the better German lagers.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 21, 2004
Truly good. Dense and persistent. Intense round and bitter body. Fresh and rich of scents.

Jurgen (7) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2004 does not count
Good body. Slightly sour aftertaste. Well balanced. Not bad, but nothing terrific.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2004
This one came out of a bottle. pours a standard light gold/straw color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of noble hops and a hint of malt. Has the light "candy" sweetness of lager malt cleaned up by a mild, well balanced bitterness. Medium body with light carbonation. Nothing too complex here, but an all around solid lager.
