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.

Jamesthebrit (416) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2014
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.

Fules (794) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 14, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, borostyán szín. Enyhe, lágeres, gyümölcsös illat. Kissé édeskés, malátás ízvilág, a háttérben kissé zöldfüves aromával. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Finom, jól eltalált, ivósör.
