COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2007 Hazy yellow with thick eggshell head. Aroma of spicy hops with unusual fruitiness (for a lager). Notes of honey, wildflowers, and bready yeast on the nose. Very malty with an aggressive hop character. Body is highly carbonated with some metallic notes. This is currently my highest rated lager.

Poured a clear deep bright yellow, almost a lime green color, with a small amount of white head. Very cool looking. Aroma is doughy, wheat, malty, and sweet. Flavor is crisp, sweet, hayish, and refreshing. Overall, I found this perfect for a hot summer night.

500ml. bottle. Clear, golden color with a medium white head that quickly dissipated. Fresh malty aroma with some hops in the background and a bit of straw. Clean, mildly sweet malt flavor with a nice hop bitterness on the finish.

The bottle poured a slightly hazy golden yellow beverage with an ample white rocky head. The head lasted well leaving good lacing on the glass. The aroma was composed of moderate malt with notes of earth and hop. There was a medium body with average carbonation and a crisp texture. The flavor starts out nicely balanced with a slight sweetness. As it matures on the tongue, some hop bitterness shows up. The finish is long.

Wierd man, some of these german beers are not what you expect. A sort of barbonated malty beer, with loads of character. Body is strangly full too, woulkd go excellently with food.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Not the nicest yellow color and a tall foam head. This is a real light yellow, similar to pale lemonade. Aroma is light grass, sticky rice and cheap tomato paste. It really isnt that bad of a scent, but thats what it smells like to me. Flavor picks up a bit, but falls short at the end. It tastes good at first, decent lager, but then it turns a bit thin and watery. Not that great of a beer, but pretty drinkable.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Medium, lacey head. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. Flowery, malty aroma with caramel mixed in. Pretty malty taste for a helles. Toffeish and slightly fruity notes. A medium flowery hoppiness in the finish. Not too sweet, just about right. A great helles. Many thanks to joss.

Crisp appearance and aroma, both being lemony and light. Medium mouthfeel and mild maltiness in the body. Easy drinkability, but pretty blah beyond that.

Malty lager, some hops in the finish. A decent German beer, a little light.
