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.

Domestic swill-like in appearance. Smells good, somewhat bitter aftertaste. Decent beer.

Garrold (4018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle. Wine Rack, Sharrow, Sheffield. Dark gold label showing Paulaner Münchner Hell Munich Lager. Crystal clear, bright gold. Thin, bubbly, white head. Nose has sweet grain. Light, leafy hop. Thin sick. Taste is bready sweet. Minimal bitterness. Clean enough mouthfeel. Light body. Finish has some dryness. Ok. Prefer a German lager to have more grassy hop, though.

Farbe gold Schaum geht so Nase süßer Hopfen bitter Gras Geschmack: sprudlig bitter, im Abgang etwas süße und dann wieder dominant bitter mit Gerste. Nicht spektakulär, bisserl bitter für mich, aber gut.

TedE (898) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2016
330ml bottle into shaker. Bottle says ’Original Munich Lager’. Crystal clear amber beer with thin film of suds on top, light but steady carbonation. Nose is stale cardboard and boredom. Full body, grainy and bitter taste. Finish is more cardboard, sour bread and distant malt. Right at the end some spicy hop notes appear. Designed as an easy-drinking quaffer but not one I would choose.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles of El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Very drinkable, although feels watery and a bit more sweet then desiderable.

50cl can from SuperAlko, Tallinn. Pours crystal clear pale golden without much head to speak of. Mild malty aroma with slightly fruity notes and hints of grass and honey. Moderate sweet with rather mild grainy flavours and a light bitterness. Fair enough - easy to drink and somewhat refreshing.
