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.

Clean, crisp lager profile of wet grains, grassy herbs, bread and lemon-ish zest. Will quench your thirst.

I drank this on tap in the hotel bar from Arcadia Hotel at the Munich Airport,
Clear golden beer with very short small white head, taste not special, boring,

Ar: Crackers and dried mixed flowers; subtle notes of sulfur, toast, and chalk. Ap: Yellow-gold and crystal clear; very large off-white head with phenomenal retention, leaving an airy cap of foam and spotted lacing along the glass sides. T: Clean cracker malt with a bit of a toast edge; lightly sweet; a touch of sulfur; bitterness is low and clean, with a dried flower flavor, a little rosy; black pepper and a fuller, lightly toasty maltiness toward the middle and into the finish; chalk, floral hops, and bitterness on the finish. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; dry finish. O: Simply a well-made helles lager; malt-focused, even though the flavor is delicate and light; just enough bitterness and hop flavor to balance; very clean fermentation profile, and quite easy-drinking and refreshing.

Bottle - pale yellow, medium with very small white head. Small lemony aroma. Ting on tongue and in mouth. Slightly tangy tasting, but standard lager basically - very thin.

500 ml bottle from a supermarket in Favignana, Sicily, Italy. It pours clear yellow, with a nice, white head. Aroma is malts, cereals, bread, notes of grass. Presence of some light hops. Taste is medium bitter. Body is light to medium, carbonation is average.

It’s a little hoppy for me and I’m not fond of the aftertaste. Still searching for the perfect Lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromă ușoară, malț, cereale încolțite, paie proaspete, ceva ierburi și frunze. Gust ușor, puțin amar (frunze), malț, paie uscate, cereale. Bună și curată.

From Feb 2006

Poured from the bottle a light gold with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly.

The only smell I could get was of slight malt and yeast.

The taste is nice and malty up front with a good dose of hops midway to make for a good balance. But...after a few sips, the beer kind of falls flat and becomes a bit boring. I see the bottle date is Aug of 05 so I'll have to retry it if I can find a fresher sample.
Overall...even at 6 months, it's not a bad drop.

rouhlas (3885) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 4, 2017
From tap at Paulaner am Dom, Frankfurt. Clear yellow golden color with white head. Malty aroma, hay, grainy. Sweet and light bitter taste. Light thin to oily body with soft to average carbonation.
