This beer was first brewed in 1978 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our brewery. It has a golden-yellow color with a slightly flowery yeast, honey-ish aroma, tastes a little spicy and is full-bodied in initial taste, mild before swallowing and soft with a refined sparkle and fades with a well-balanced hint of bitterness. It is an especially drinkable and harmonious beer. Conrad Seidl, known as the Austrian “Pope of Beers”, on the Jahrhundert-Bier: “It is a malty beer that pronounces the precious earthy quality of malted barley.”

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 19, 2016
Crystal clear golden color wit frothy white head. Aroma has some clean, sweet malt and a bit of alcohol. Taste starts grainy, then you get the sweet malt and the finish is more balanced by some hop bitterness. Aftertaste has a stale grain note which I don’t like. Body is on the lighter side with medium to high carbonation. Not really top tier for a helles. I expected a bit more from Ayinger.

King_Alex_II (1181) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Pale yellow color with foam ring. Shy, minimal malty nose. Aggressive mouth feeling (carbonation and light acidic) in the beginning and malty afterward. Malty and little bitter in the aftertaste with a tiny tartness.

Tap Ayingers krog i München. Bästa helles i Tyskland antagligen. Från träfat. Frisk maltig med subtil humleton. Lerkrus. Rund mild och ack så lättdrucken. Ingen spritsighet. Suverän !

Hellgelb, klar, zurückhaltendes Aroma, dafür starker Körper und schöne Balance mit dem dezenten Hopfen, lang anhaltender Abgang

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is normal helles stuff with a little more malt. Taste is sour and a little bittersweetness. But mostly sour. In the finish the bitterness comes through. Medium body, a little smoother than the average helles. Overall ok but nothing special.

Pours clear pale yellow with medium white head. Nose is slightly fruity. Aromas are sweet malts and grass. Average carbonation, light body. Short grassy finish. Don’t get the wow factor here...

JRisWasted (16) - La Palma, California, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours a golden yellowish color with incredible fluffy head. Grassy, herbal, spicy aromas come through. Taste follows the aroma closely. Sweet biscuit followed by the nice herbal bitterness. This one does an excellent job of maintaining head throughout. Great helles lager.
