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.”

brianza_ale (184) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2014
50 cl bottle. Pours an ivory white abundant head, extremly clear pale yellow to golden colour. Smells quite weak (could be me, but I think my nose it’s pretty ok as usual): a bit of grain and honey aroma. Tastes typical german lager, malty, honey, cereals; really good balance, sweetness is always there from beginning to end, with a delicate bitterness covering from half to the finish. Nice mild carbonation, light body, HUGE drinkability. The most traditional german low fermentation blondie

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle-Pours hazy lite orange with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is slightly acidic, lite pale grains, grass, lite husky notes. Flavors show the husky pale grains and lite cereal notes. this beer doesnt have much to it however, I can see why it is regarded as a high level of this style. With that said, i think New Glarus does better german beers than most german brewers. Im sure most will hate me for saying that but i think its the truth. This is a good helles but there are others better from American brewers.

MarkoNm (1292) - 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 (468) - 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 (443) - 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.
