Paulaner Original Munich Lager
Original Munich Lager. Paulaner. Munich, Germany.
“The traditional Munich lager”.
Dark urine. No clouds. Pours a slight head that quickly dissipates into a fizzy pool of variable bubble size, with the appearance of a perfectly polluted stream.
Tiny bubbles percolating up the glass.
Very slight smell. Don’t have the vocabulary to describe it. Only notable for its absense.
Plain. Traditional. Somewhat like an American macro, but not as metallic and boring. A slight bitterness, but this is not a beer with a strong hops character.
Aimee describes it as “balanced”, but also “flat”.
Simple, a bit of fizzy. Fine.
This is a prototypical beer.
I could drink a half dozen of these, and would much prefer it to Budweiser, but don’t prefer it to the German pilsners I’ve had recently, particularly the Ayinger.
