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.”

Clear pale yellow. White diminishing foamy head. Grainy, bready aroma with a hint of citrus Taste is malty and fruity with a discrete, bitter zing. Carb is soft, full bodied mouthfeel. Good one.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a light gold colored body that is somewhat hazy, two finger white foamy head, slightly lacing but slides and fades like a normal dortmunder. The smell had a bready sweetness and was lightly hopped. The taste was mainly sweet, bready aftertaste, sweet finish, On the palate, it sat about a light on the body and was sessionable. It was adequately carbonated. Overall, well, its a dortmunder, what does one expect. Good for the style, but worth coming back to, hmmm...hard to say?

Clear, pale yellow beer with a foamy white head. Faint malty aroma. Rather bland, softly carbonated, malty sweet beer with no bitterness. Some flavors not so pleasant. A decent beer for thirst and a sunny day outdoors but nothing exciting.

McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden colour with low head and meidum to thin body. Aroma of straw and hops. Taste of mild hops, straw, grains, bread, mild fruits, flowers and light malt. Boring finish. For me this is an absolutely overrated beer. Not that it is that awful but it ain’t that great.

Ein Helles, das irgendwie dann doch nicht raussticht. Getreidig, mit etwas Butter und einer milden Bitternote. Nichts Besonderes.

Slightly hazy pale yellow with white head. More fizz and slightly more bitter than a normal helles. Nice but nothing too special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smell of malt, fruit. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, grain, also hops to be noted. Lively carbon.

czar (4379) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
pours hazy pale yellow with a small white cap showing a minimal retention and lacing. honeyed malts - bready but mostly doughy, grass and pepper, crackers, other spices, clean yeast, hint of sweetness, touch of citrus, ginger and sulfur. average to moderate carbonation, light body, relatively dry grassy-herbal-peppery finish. ok.

Blah. Way too watery to be exciting. Good flavor though. Wouldn’t recommend paying the premium price for this one.

From bottle. Smell is corn flakes. Not a lot else. Taste is biscuit malts, white peach, rose hips, and of course German yeast. Nice mouthfeel.
