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: Light, malty, a tinge of lemony citrus. A sort of stale hop note. A: Very light in color. A sort of oolong tea color. T: Actually pretty decent for the style. Light-medium, but some nice malty tones. A bit of earthiness in there. Finish has some good flavor notes. A surprise indeed. Some yeastiness. P: Medium body (yeah really), a bit agressive but not bad. A surprisingly solid beer. The taste is surprisingly complex (although it’s relative I suppose) and the medium mouthfeel really sets this apart. This beer really sat well on the palate which makes it stand out for the style. A surprise hit.

Bottle pours a lake golden with a large white head. Aroma of light grassy hops and caramel malt. Caramel malt, with some adjunct corn flavor, and a touch of grassy hops.

500ml bottle at home, from AleselA, Glasgow - cereal is the main component I detect in the aroma, a few streams of bubbles, clear pale straw coloured, thin white head, cereal, floral, poor lacing, fizzy, long malty finish

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear golden amber, thin white head cover, dots of lace. Taste is malt with mild hops on the swallow - that’s all there is. Quite agreeable, and refreshing, but not a lot happening.

Teran (95) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 8, 2015
No foam, dead beer - use to say dutch beer drinkers. Cereal, bread, some metallic, citric also. Clear pale yellow colour. Slightly bitter aftertaste. And slightly average beer, hardly to buy it again.

Décevante. Fort nez de miel, très très fines bulles, pas de mousse. Arrière goût indéfinissable.
