The Paulaner Salvator with its strong,typically malty taste is the original Paulaner. The bottom-fermented Doppelbock-Bier unites the finest hops and dark barley malt. The Paulaner monks served Salvator as a replacement for food at Lent. Their most famous brewer was Brother Barnabas, who was the head of the Paulaner monastery brewery starting from 1773. Its original recipe is today almost the same as it was in Barnabas' time. In order to protect the original recipe, Paulaner had the trade mark "Salvator" patented in 1896.

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2003
Reddish-brown with pinkish hue. Apple sauce aroma with caramel and anise. Head was not substantial. Great mouthfeel and flavor, though difficult to pinpoint. Broad palate - sweet, tart , full, a touch bitter, fruity. Some minty notes, with plenty of malt and fruit. Finish is sweet, but hops present in sufficient quantities to temper this nicely.

On draught at gourmet Haus. Rich caramel nose leads to a clear copper with small off white head. Slight lacing. Taste is layers of rich malt. Caramel, bread and toffee bread. Sweetness lingers faintly.

Pint 9 bottle shared. Poured a dark copper color with off white head. The aroma was of sweet malts and plenty of wheat very pleasing to the nose. The flavor was more of the same very nice sweet malt and wheat nicely balanced throughout and quite tasty.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours deep amber with large off-white head. Taste is rather thin for the ABV with a lacklustre maltiness and medium sweetness. Expected more.

A bit disappointing. Nice aroma. Malty but too sweet for my taste. The sweetness dstracts from everything else, which is a shame.

330ml bottle, pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee apple, medium body, texture is oily and thins out. Finish is balanced with a light bitter short ending. Carbonation is soft. Improves as it warms.
