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.”

Pours yellow golden from bottle with generous white head. Aroma is subtle but includes honey and malt. Very malty with noticeable sweetness up front and nearly absent hoppy bitterness on the back end. Is that cinnamon? Mouthfeel is light, low carbonation, appropriate for style. Overall superb beer, very balanced and sweet though not for hop lovers.

Very light piss yellow pour with low white soapy head. Nose is honey and red hots ( corn syrup and simple fake cinnamon. Light and drinkable and no spice. Taste all red hots minus the heat and honey. Weird that it tastes like cinnamon candy with not common spice. Interesting

500 ml bottle. Has a crystal clear, light-straw color that reminds me of champagne ... except champagne doesn’t have a snow-white, frothy head like this does. Aroma is subtle with notes of honey and sweet flowers. Taste is sweet at first, and the there is a slight bitterness on the backend. The flavor of honey is very pronounced, but not overpowering like mead. It has a medium-body with lively carbonation. The finish fades quickly, but smoothly. Overall, a very nice beer that I am enjoying more and more as I sip it. :)

AndresTM (369) - 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.

Fantomasus (287) - 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 (916) - 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.
