Appearance: Paulaner Original pours a transparent light biege. It's substnatial head sinks into a downward funnel as it settles.
Smell: The aroma gives the indication of a noble hop presence and is slightly skunky, but less so than many European lagers of this nature.
Taste: The taste is a refreshing, if light, dose of German hops and pale malt.
Mouthfeel: Paulaner Original is on the lighter-bodied side and smooth enough for government work. Carbonation is rather high, as is appropriate for the style.
Drinkability: This is what session lagers are all about. This would be a great thirst quencher on a hot summer day.
Notes: What can really be said about a beer such as this? It's not flashy. It won't knock your socks off. But then again, that's not really the point with a beer of this sort. Paulaner Original is just plain old good beer, so I'm going to drink up.

The beer poured out with a light gold color, decent carbonation, and sported a thin, white head. Malty nose with a dank, wet grass note. Lightly toasted malt grain flavor with a corresponding hop bitterness to even things out. Medium-light body; slightly coarse; clean and dry finish.
Nothing exceptional leaps out at you with this beer, but it is tasty, wet, and soothing overall. There's a pleasant marriage with the light, biscuit-like graininess and rounded hop bitterness starting midway through the sip and on past the finish. Probably won't bowl you over in any manner, but most likely won't disappoint you either.
