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.”

AndresTM (350) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2015
The aroma is delicate floral hops, grain, malts, polen, and honey. Very sweet and natural. The palate is medium to thin, with a slightly oily body and medium effervescence. The taste is moderately bitter, with the subtlest touch of sweet, for a tasty dry finish. A spicy hop and barley character persists. Delicious, refreshing, and surprisingly intricate.

Very drinkable. A lager with no loose ends for style. Light caramel finish. Pours golden with only initial head and lacing. Bottle.

Fantomasus (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw with a white head of tightly packed bubbles. Clean fresh simple aroma: hay, floral, and cheese. Not a tone of flavor but what there is, is nice. Light body, average carbonation, short bitter finish. Has to be my favorite lager.

Senka (836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
50cl bottle. Pours pale yellow with thinhead. Aroma of yeast, sour apples, sugar and spring flowers. Mildly sweet, gently dry and pleasantly bitter brew. Not as simple as most helles arround here. Reminded me how lager beer should taste like - as I remembere them to be 15 years ago. Medium bodied for its type. Pleasant carbonation and a slightly rough texture. Definitely one of the positive rediscoveries this month.

Very light straw-yellow, almost green. Thick long-lasting head. Smell is yeasty, some hops, cloves, spice. Taste is just a little sweet with honey and flower notes. Soft body, touch of hops, yeasty finish.

ttoadee (834) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pale yellow pour, big white head. Nose is malt, very lightly kilned, hint flowers. Bittersweet. Middle is crisp apple and bread, medium mouthfeel. Finish is dry and carbonated. Not bad.

Underdogs88 (238) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Floral hop aroma with notes of grainy sweetness. Appearance is a light gold with white head with average retention. Flavor is well balanced between the hops and malt with a mineral character from that is noticeable. Malt has a bready pils character and the hops are floral. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Overall, this beer has excellent drinkability and is a great example of a dortmunder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (3274) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle @ BBB. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty, slightly floral and slightly fruity with crackers, cereal, hay, white grapes, moist soil and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly fruity with crackers, white bread, cookie dough, hay, white raisins, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter with cereal, white bread, hay, minerals, white raisins and lemon zest. Bit more sweet than expected. Would have loved it drier and crisper.
