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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Abroad Paulaner may best be known for it’s range of wheat-beers. But there’s much more to this brewery. Very pale with a lovely, creamy head. Sweet malty presence in both nose and flavour and an almost overwhelming softness. An excellent beer reminding me of some of the best Czech pilseners. 210899

omhper (23540) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2004
Sampled draught at Dansk Ølfestival.
Pale golden. MAlt aroma. Sweet with notes of sour dough. Dense mouthfeel. Sadly the flavours are dull and th ebeer gives a massproduced, industrial impression.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Slightly zesty lager and also subtley floral. Otherwise unremarkable. 2.7

5th May 2015
Bright clear paleish gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth with very nice super fine carbonation. Clean pale malts, touch of creamy sweetness. Mild floralness. Hops are pretty mild citrus but they do deliver a citric snap at the very end. Clean finish. So very drinkable.
