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.

fid600 (28) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 29, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2015 50 cl can from a random supermarket in Zagreb, served in a snifter. Golden yellow with medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of malt, bread, hopps, grass, citrus, fresh. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste is well balanced, with very subtle sweetness, and bitter finish. Very slight astringency develops later on.

Not quite sure how I’ve never rated this. Had plenty of times by the bottle, by the stein in Munich. Had a couple of steins the other day at Katzenjammers. Clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is slightly grassy, perhaps a little hay but very little really. Refreshing, not overly carbonated, grass and light hops. So easy to drink.

Served from a ’limited edition’ FC Bayern München can with Jerome Boateng’s face on the back of it. Fairly bitter and malty. Aroma suggests that it’s going to be a bit sweet but it’s more woody than anything else.

jamaty (1458) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2015
Buen aspecto dorada clara mínimamente nebulosa y espuma densa y muy blanca. Apenas aroma, cereal. En boca tiene cuerpo moderado y gas punzante. Y un sabor equilibrado con rica base cereal y un caracter general bien seco, especiado y muy refrescante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
