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.”

Kauge (410) - 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.

Bygers (878) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
On tap 0,5l at Ayingers, Munich. Pours a pale straw colour with a small white head. Aroma is malts, fruity and metallic notes. Flavor is bready malts, sweet toffee notes, some mild hoppiness in the finish. Slight acidity and malt sweetness in the aftertaste. Lively carbonation, medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonusWagner (1632) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A really good straightforward helles lager with lots of malt character and a light tinge of spicy hops. Easily drinkable, yet heavy enough to make a solid autumn drinker.

Fantastic beer, smooth flavor, nice clear golden yellow appearance and a crisp aroma. I drank this without food but I imagine this would be a homerun with a good meat dish. Side note, this beer has a killer bottle cap, great landscape painting that really caught my eye.

Jahrhundert is difficult to say (for me, anyway) but damn easy to drink. This golden, even-tempered lager has a lovely effervescent body and a fizzy white head. Smell is a bit light but you can detect cereal grains and grassy hops - everything you’d expect and about all you need from this style. Taste is sweet, crisp, and clean. Thought light-bodied, Jahrhundert never allows the carbonation to become prickly. It manages to be malty without being particularly rich. And holy hell is this beer refreshing. This may not be my absolute favorite Ayinger brew, but I’d revisit it without hesitation.

Golden color with nice white tall head from 500ml bottle, nice flavor and smoothness with faint bitter finish. Just taste like good beer nothing more or less. Would drink again

Unde (437) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Hay yellow looks with big and bold head which goes down quickly. Aroma has malts, barley and some honey. Taste is really malty, a bit dry with some hops and honey malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. A basic well made lager.
