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.”

Bottle @ Ölrepubliken. Clear golden with a huge rocky white head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is grass, bread, slight citrus and a honey tone. Taste is clean and crisp, with pale malt, grass, citrus, bread, slight bitter tone, again some honey touch. Light body, medium carbo, slight round texture. A stable helles.

MarkoNm (972) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 3, 2014
Pours a pale golden color, clear, topped with a very fine and solid frothy white head. There ia a malty, wheaty aroma, addition of some coury notes. The taste is sweet, some honey in there, with a little bitterness in the end. Not bad, but nothing that special either.

ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a white slight head. Aroma is a light honey with some metallic hints and a slight hint of cereal. Taste is a light bready and sweet flavor with subtle bitterness on the back and a slick mouthfeel. This beer isn’t bad but between the aroma and taste it’s a very light beer in both categories. Kind of a disappointment from an Ayinger beer.

Derbeth (401) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle with expiry date November 2014. Pale colour, frothy head that does not last long. Aroma is not very intensive, with honey, wort, a bit of herbal hops. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Average carbonation, medium body. It’s ok, but don’t expect much from it.

Bork (365) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Floral hops take over this brew completely and give it a slightly tepid feel. Maltiness through finish is nice but generally low on taste.

slowrunner77 (6278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"i’ll have to re-rate as i had a cold when i tried this for the first time, but for now it’ll have to do. a solid sweet-leaning lighter beer, with a smooth crisp mouthfeel. i dont know if my nose just missed the hops or if they were really that mellow (earthy and light) but the malt profile was very nice."

rozsoma (522) - HUNGARY - OCT 5, 2014
Száraz, dry. Föld, earthy, gyökér, root. Hatalmas habzó hab. A habstabilizátork bőszen fejtik ki hatásukat. Szintén nyers sárga nyárszínű-ízű. Letisztult, professzionális. Évszázad söre.

Kauge (437) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 29, 2014
50 cl bottle from Liviko Alcostore in Tallinn harbour (€ 2,19). Pours a very pale, clear golden with a very big white top that keeps and laces nicely. Nose is delicate grassy hops, cereals, some restrained doughiness. Taste is crisp and clean malts, grassy hops, overall fairly sweet (a bit honey-like), with an autumn fruits’ (apples, pears) note somewhere in the middle. It’s got a nice light body and a carbonation that does not dominate too much. A dry, grassy palate with low bitter finish. A good, refreshing lager. Better when cold.

Hazyish golden color, big white head. Aroma of apples, malt and grass. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Medium sweet taste with no bitterness. OK.
