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.

11.2 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, grain and a little spice. Taste is the malt and a little hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light Gold. It’s not beer: no flavour, no taste. Just dirty water. Terrible. Never more

Mini-Keg @ RBSG 2015. How have I not rated this? Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nice sweet bready malts. Slightly grainy with some biscuit and toasted grains. Light floral hops, maybe a touch soapy. Light fruity esters and some grassy hops. Minimal bitterness. A classic.

Keg. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big sweet hay and grainy nose. The flavor is big sweet honey flavor. Light toast. Smooth. Very nice.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter hoppig. Standaard bier, gewoon goed.

5l can (no, I didn’t drink all of it). Fairly clean, malty taste, bready, slightly soapy but also rather crisp. I don’t like this style but this beer is actually quite enjoyable.

Cerveja tradicional lager alemã. O aroma é o esperado, sem destaques é com toque de banana e cascas de laranja. A cor é amarelo claro, translúcida e infelizmente sem a tradicional e protetora espuma. O sabor é decepcionante, sem destaques é com corpo levíssimo, criando uma cerveja aguada. O toque tradicional alemão se perde no corpo leve e o unico ponto positivo é a drinkability, que, refrescante, harmoniza facilmente com qualquer alimento leve.

Very good beer for almost any occasion. Pleasant smell. Good taste without being super delicious. Small head. Overall a safe choice.
