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.

defabant (240) - ITALY - APR 20, 2019
UPDATED: APR 20, 2019 Bevuta alla spina. Colore giallo oro, piuttosto limpida. Aroma quasi inesistente. Gusto tipico di una lager da pasto, si lascia bere senza essere stucchevole.

BarrelTapper31 (135) - RUSSIA - APR 18, 2019
UPDATED: APR 18, 2019 Russian version brewed in Germany for export - some say there's a difference, some say there isn't. Good, but not great, pretty standard correctly brewed malty helles in affordable price range. I'd even call it watery.

pkbites (1098) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2019
UPDATED: APR 16, 2019 A surprisingly light pour. Flat head and metallic aroma. Flavor is light and rather dry. Little hops, little aftertaste. Refreshing but that's as impressive as this gets.

phoner2 (99) - Racine, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2019
It’s my favorite octoberfest, but surprisingly the original isn’t that great, hints of dish towel, aluminum foil and not much malt flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WortMeister11 (93) - - APR 9, 2019
UPDATED: APR 9, 2019 Aroma: bready malt, subtle herbal hop Appearance: clear golden color with a three-finger white head Taste: bready malt, herbal hop, some woody hop, medium-low sweetness, medium-low bitterness Palate: light body, medium carbonation, moderate dryness in the finish Overall: High drinkability. Low flavor. Gentle herbal hop character. Commercial lager.

CalumScotland (257) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2019
UPDATED: APR 6, 2019 Paulaner is also a monastic brew, fermenting itself info existing in the Nuedeck monastery in 1629. As a result of an unsuccessful complaint filed against the Paulaner monks to ban sales of their home-brewed bier; February 24th,1634 is a special date as it marks the official founding date of the Paulaner brewery.

Foxbush (2438) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2019 Draft at a Restuarant near Gare Du EST in Paris. The lagerpoured a clear gold color with a white foamy head. Some lacing. Bready - malty aroma. Medium body with average carbonation. The finish is clean with no hop bitterness.

DmitryD (47) - Saint Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 10, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2019 Добротный уверенный немецкий лагер. Ничего лишнего. Солод и немного хмеля. Вкусно.

davaytak (5) - - MAR 3, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2019 Классика немецкого пива. Лично мне такое пиво не заходит. Но лучше отечественной «классики»

PubTun33 (53) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2019 500ml glass bottle from M&S Westfield London for £2.50. Was part of a mixed beer offer. The best before was 09/19. Straight from the fridge into a pint glass. The beer pours a tad darker then golden straw colour and brilliantly clear. Despite lots of carbonation and fizz no head at all. Perhaps a disservice I’ve done to the beer with the wrong glassware. The carbonation is retained for the life of the drink, with multiple streams of medium bubbles. The aroma is a little monotone if I’ve honest. Some hops, bread. Nothing more. The taste follows with moderately bitter hop presence and some graininess from the bread taste. Nothing much else. Fresh and clean. Not overly bitter, no sweetness whatsoever. The mouthfeel is of high carbonation. Again some moderate bitterness on the palate. A relatively nice hells. Probably falls into the category of being above average without having enough taste or aroma to be very good.
