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.”

Beachmaster (291) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light yellow, with a moderate white head that persists. Good lacing. Nose is yeasty. Taste is subdued maltiness with spice notes and a little hop kick on the finish. Nicely balanced, with a soft mouth feel. Quite a good session beer.

574deadzone (1321) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Pours a hazy straw gold with a tall bone white head that hangs out a bit and leaves some impressive clinging foamy lace. Nose involves nice subtle noble spice hops, lightly tinny lager yeast and soft bread dough, a very light savory smoke note, some essences of stone fruit and pineapple. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, somewhat oily, with a lengthy malty into cleansing hop bitter finish. Balanced, plenty of contributions from malt and hops (and yeast).

Pours yellow with a lacy white head. Smells of honey and yeast. Tastes light and malty, slightly spicy and yeasty. Finishes clean.

artyom (824) - Osijek, CROATIA - MAY 3, 2015
0.5l bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma is malty and herbal. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. Medium body and average to lively carbonation. Overall it’s good beer, but it’s somehow one-dimensional.

tmongoose (1956) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pint 9 bottle shared. Poured a bright yellow with white foamy head. Lacing disappears quickly. Aroma is mild bready malt and honey. The flavor is bright and crisp and flavorful. Nice malt with honey notes. Excellent example of the style. You could drink a lot of this.

KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 2, 2015
Von Holzfass at the Trunk in Munich. Creamy malt nose, bready, light hops. Lovely palate, full and smooth, low carbonation. Creamy biscuit sweetness, light lemon and orange. A bit sweet but well put together. The difference between the bottom of one barrel and the top of another was quite interesting and evident.

ScottWallace82 (96) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle into a glass. Pleasant straw gold color with a thick white head. Very little aroma. Good pilsner flavor with a crisp finish. No off-flavors to speak of.

On tap. Clear straw yellow with one finger head. Malty aroma, nothing too much. Very easy drinking, malty and a little sweet.
