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.”

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2004
Pale yellow with a small, white head and lots of lacing. Yeasty aroma with some fruit (apricot, banana?). Flavor surprisingly malty and yeasty with some fruitiness up front with a good hit of hops in the finish. Average mouthfeel. My first Helles, and although, I probably won’t pay for it again, this stuff isn’t bad.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2004
Pale gold with little head. A better than average lager, for sure. Has a pleasant taste with hint of fruit flavor. Goes down smooth and light. A good grilling beer.

sayravai (4669) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 (Bottled) Pale golden with a large, foamy and white, lacy head. Buttery, grassy and lightly yeasty-musty-earthy aroma with sweetish, grainy malt. Very clean, grainy, very malty, pale-toffeeish flavor with mild, grassy hops and some acidity. Long, moderately bitter and acidic finish. Medium-bodied, smooth and neutral, refreshing palate with soft carbonation. No signs of alcohol. Really a "back to basics" brew with clean, neutral maltiness, balancing (although somewhat sparingly dosed) hops, plus an awesome drinkability. If all bulk lager tasted like this, there would be soooo many more beer lovers! I’m sure there’s nobody, who could honestly say this beer is harsh or unclean. Still, some personality remains. (Bottled, at the Helsinki Beer Festival 2004, was 7-2-7-3-14=3.3) Typical lager color, small head. Slightly sour and malty aroma. Original, malty flavor. Slightly sour and earthy (hay?). Not bad for a lager.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2004
Nice golden color. Very malty smell with a skunky hop aroma. Taste is bready but has a lingering skunky taste. Not bad, but a maltier flavor and thicker palate would give this beer a better rating.

Goblincat (381) - Westland, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Pours light and cloudy with a average white head. Light skunky nose, not sure if it has gone bad or is supposed to be this way. Taste full of yeast, a little dull but a decent finish.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Somewhat murky yellow color with a billowing head with nice lace. Slightly sour, bready aroma with hints of malt. Some carbonation on the tongue. Malt is more prevalent when you drink it. Some floral hops, minimal citrus. Extremely quick, crisp finish. Hard to rate this one. This is a rather refreshing brew, probably excellent in the warmer months. Finish is a bit quick for my tastes, and I would like a bit more carbonation. Drink it quick, this didn't warm very well in my opinion. Overall, a respectable offering.
