4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into a weizen glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear straw-yellow color with a huge billowy white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of foamy lace islands on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of lightly toasted pale malt smell mixed with lots of a biscuit and some caramel smells. Along with these aromas comes some lighter grainy smells as well as a little bit of a grassy aroma
Taste – The taste begins with a caramel and toffee sweeter flavor mixed with a nice doughty taste. As the taste moves from the initial, some light grainy tastes as well as a lighter fruity flavor of both a sweeter apple and pear but also some lighter bitter lemon flavors enters the taste. The sweeter flavors fade ever so slightly as the taste moves on more toward the end, and with some more bitter herbal and grassy hop tastes coming to the tongue, one if left with a moderately crisp and very smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are fantastic for creating the crisp and very easy drinking feel for the brew. This is a superb feel for the flavors.
Overall – A clean and very refreshing brew. This is quite flavorful and very easy drinking with a great crisp taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale yellow and sports a big, fluffy white head with good retention and really nice lacing. The nose is very clean and subtle. It includes notes of white bread and butter from the malts as well as noble earthy-flowery notes from the hops. On the palate, Ayinger Jahrhundert starts off with the malts with muted sweetness, then proceeds to earthy hops on the mid-palate before light bitterness and astringency kick in, and finally leaves some spiciness behind in the dry finish. The body is light and spritzy; it could come off as watery if the subtleties escape you. This brew is very good and exemplary for pale lagers (in a broad sense) that target connoisseurs and casual session drinkers alike.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light golden body, medium head. Sweet malty aroma, a bit muted. Medium to thin mouthfeel. Sweet malty taste with grainy finish. Too light flavours. Lacks that nice cookie taste that many examples of the style have. Unimpressive, especially for the high score here.
