Sampled fresh off tap at the Munich airport. ( Figured that this Muncher Helles and a pretzel would be a nice 9am breakfast while waiting for a connecting flight home - hey, when in Munich!)
Great head and plenty of thorough lacing. Very thorough. Pale in colour with plenty of bubbles. Sweet, malty aroma with some light hops. Clean and unagressive finish. One of the best plain lager type beers I've tried to date. Hops come through in the finish. A perfect balance - this I think is what sets it apart from other, lesser beers.
Quite simply, this is great quality. Amazed that something this limited can be so good. you might need to go to Germany and have it off tap to see for yourself, but it's probably worth it.

This bottle was best before 12.06. And not to be confused with the regular original... it was clearly labeled Urtyp and 5.5%.

A: Very clear, slight golden hue; Fizzy white head, no retention or lace.

S: Toffee with fresh, clean hops.

T: Hop flavour is up front, but not too agressive. Clean, crisp bitterness; slight caramel & toffee flavour.

M: Moderate body and carbonaton. There's a good malty backbone, but it's nothing special.

D: Quite good.
