COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Aroma I can’t put my finger on, but it is definitely fruity. Nice frothy head, and a reddish appearance. Smooth palate, slight alcohol aftertaste, a drinkable brew I wouldn’t go out of my way to get again.

Thick and malty. Quite satisfying. Not my favorite style but reasonably well done. Tons of caramunich maltiness. I had hoped the finish would be a little less sweet.

Clear reddish color. Prominent flavors are the sweetness and alcohol. I think I like Spaten’s dopplebock better.

Being the first does not make it the best. Paulaner is a mediocre brewery as far as I am concerned. This beer is just this side of boring.

GregClow (2948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2002
Dark copper-amber with a frothy head that disappears quickly. Aroma of sweet malt and dark caramel. Initial sweet flavour gives way to bitter dirt and warm alcohol. The booziness becomes more prominent as the beer warms up. Not entirely unpleasant, but not ass-kicking either.

A great golden orange color. Nice full white head. Sweet nose. Interesting flavor. Sweet to start. Tart in the middle and dry to finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2003
Sweet aroma with fruits in the background: plums, apricots, spicy berries. Pours an amber brown, fairly clear, head disappears quickly. Flavour wise, I found this fairly bland. It's like an embryonic Belgian style ale; it wants to be more but just didn't make it. Mouthfeel is interesting but not overly exciting. Alcohol is present at the end, but finish is flat. Can't really say I was especially impressed with this beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Nice red amber color. Sweet malty aroma with hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, malty and faintly acetic. Decent but definitely a rung below Spaten Optimator on the Doppelbock ladder.

Light caramel color, small head. Caramel aroma Good flavor which is slightly candy like. Ok finish but not as strong as I want.
