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.

Malty and hoppy Dortmunder lager that may not be so well balanced, but good nonetheless.

50cl bb03/2015, Edeka. Dank cardboard and soggy grain in the nose announce that this is a mug-sized chugger: taste corroborates this fear by being almost wholly devoid of hop nor specific pale malt character, offering mostly old straw and a sogged bready sweetness with a massive sticky sourdough edge conjuring up sticky Vitamalz. Gulpable and yet less than refreshing.

Smooth, bitter hell. Not earth shattering by any means, but still a solid hell.

Very good beer overall. Pours a very bright golden color, very clear. Small white head. Just the right bitterness and hops. Crisp. Awesome.

the aroma is malty and herbal with hints of grain and hop... the taste is malty, clear and refreshening, with smooth hoppy bitterness... spicy dry aftertaste... classic Bavarian beer...

loubar (51) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Hard to believe they could continue to sell something this bad. The nose is sort of bready and cereal like with a skunky note. Taste is unbalanced to the sweet side with no discernible hops. Not crisp. Very disappointing...

Martinus (3015) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Clear pale golden colour, white head. Malty aroma and flavour, light bitter. Malty finish.
(from 50cL bottle @ some Rasthof on the road to Bamberg)

dr.dod (320) - Szeged, HUNGARY - NOV 11, 2014
500ml can. Nice lager for high price (low overall point). Rather sweet than hoppy, besides foam is poor, but taste is grainy, malty, very short bitter at the end of all gulp. Almost thin beer.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una buona birra. Equilibrata in tutto. Dorato chiaro di colore, schiuma finissima e peristente, non troppo briosa, ben luppolata

Hrc_Cro (93) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2014
0.5l bottle. Clear golden color with fast disappearing white head. Aroma of bread. Taste is too sweet, like eating cookies with water. It would be good if some bitterness was present.
