You can never go wrong with a Paulaner. Every style is a world class beer. Period. This Original Munchner is a wonderful example of what a good helles style is. Crispy, well balanced and easy to drink, fulfilling to a maximum. tasted from a 1 liter, Oktoberfest limited edition mini keg. Moments of pleasure ahead of you. Enjoy!

Pours a clear golden coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smell is quite sweet, with biscuity malt and a certain honey note and hints of grain and hay. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by mellow biscuity malt and a light honey sweetness. There is a bit more hoppiness to the taste than the smell, with light citrus and herbal/grassy notes. Finishes with a light bitterness and some honey sweetness lingering in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean, easy-drinking, boring lager.

I used to enjoy this often while stationed in babenhausen, Germany while in the Army in the mid 80s. I miss those days. Good German beer while spit shining boots.

Pint from Church on the Hill, Glasgow (£4.80):
A very nice lager from Paulaner, this one was clean & balanced with an excellent mouthfeel despite it not being the most varied or exciting tasting beer; it was very well made though. Opening with a subtle sweetness & touches of biscuit, there was a hint of citrus in there too & everything worked well together to give a light but enjoyable tasting beer that went down very easily indeed.

Light dry malt overall with a very slight unripened peach note in the background. Hop flavor is balanced and kind of earthy like wet leaves and fresh cut grass.

Just a classic clean and crisp German lager. Well carbonated, light to medium bodied and a very mild hop bitterness on the finish. Smells and tastes of slightly sweet malts, floral hops, crackers, a hint of green apple and pepper.
