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.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Bottle. Yellow-gold with a substantial white head. Aroma is bready sweet, hops are quite noticeable, background note of DMS. Taste is bready pilsner malt sweet, some apple juice hints, spicy hops. Finish is lightly sweet with a cleansing dry bitterness. This must be the prototype for the style, it’s very well done and makes you feel you are imbibing in a beer garden. Prost!

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 (1335) - 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

Cimbasso (356) - - AUG 27, 2015
Ubiquitous beer, often sampled in the past. On this occasion it was drunk on draught at a beach bar in Latte, Italy. Clear, golden colour with a refreshing, slightly citrusy taste and big, mineral-tasting hops. A standard Helles, but very reliable and highly enjoyable to drink.

No special, but it is so good. It is very familiar taste, dark yellow apparence. And palate is little heavy I think.

Ucice 13/8 2015. 50 cl can from local market (Voli). Idyllic skyline of Munich on the can. Pours clear pale yellow with big white head. Settles as thin layer of foam with some lacing. Aroma has fine balance between sweet malts and bitterness. The same goes for the taste that is slightly to the bitter side. Fine well balanced lager.

tomer (2237) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2015
Draught, smallish head, quite clear yellow color, light malty honey aroma, straw grainy flavor, light malty sweetness. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

szeli (76) - GERMANY - AUG 1, 2015
Ein gutes Helles. Getrunken frisch gezapft im Seehaus/München. Im Glas Gold-Gelb mit schöner feinporiger Schaumkrone. Im Aroma sehr malzig mit ganz leichten, feinen Hopfenaromen. Im Geschmack dominiert Brotkrume, etwas Honig und ansonsten leichte Fruchtigkeit, allerdings nur ganz dezent. Insgesamt ein erfrischendes Bier mit feinem, aber wässrigem Geschmack.
