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. Pours transparent yellow with white head. Nose is floral, hay, sweet malt. Flavour is pils malt with hay-flavoured hops on the finish. Very crisp, refreshing. Took a third of the bottle before I "got" this and realized just how good a lager it is; I think it’s everything the Big Lagers here claim to be but fail at: crisp, refreshing, delicate, easy to down. Winner.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a pale yellow with a white head. Taste light fruit, smooth. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (1050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Soft floral and earthy aroma. Boring, one-dimensional flavour of grassy hops. Not a great deal better than a bog standard Lager, to be honest. Thin body with a light, oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation fizz. Not the most enjoyable - tastes cheap and dull.

djoeye (896) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 0.5L bottle 5.5% abv, through Alko Finland, Kilpishalli. Clear straw coloured body. White average light head, reduces into a thin film with some lacings inside the mug. Scents from sweet malts, fruity grassy hops, some dough or yeast too. Tastes hops, malts, with a background of herbs and spices. Alright balanced with decent bitterness underneath. Finishes semi dry, roasted grains, smoked wood, and yet hops. Overall tasteful german pilsener.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Hazy yellow pour with abundant white head. Aroma of yeast, straw, grass, light citrus and maybe apricot. Flavors of fruit, light hops, wheat. Really a great example of the style.

Bif (1298) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours a hazy straw color with a big head that fades to decent lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit, flowery with a bit of yeast. Taste of malt, fruity and a bit of spice in the background. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and refreshing with a nice balance. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

Bottle: Hazy pale yellow. Very light and quick to dissipate head. Fruity malty aromas. Bright. Fresh malty lightly roasted nose. Very clean and focused. Like a sack of fresh grain. Dry. Low bitterness. Slightly sour. Very refreshing palate. Estery. Good length and balance.

ryecatcher (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pale straw clor, massive white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is malty, hints of yeast, honey, noble hops. Mouth is medium bodied and a hint of sweet, delightfully malty (yeah, I said delightfully so fuckin’ what?), mild hoppy bitterness, touches lemon zest, of hay and white pepper. Finishes mellow and bread doughy. Excellent.
