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.”

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2005
Big malty aroma, some floral hoppy notes. Light yellow, pours a large, long lasting, rocky off-white head. Flavour is sweet malt, hint of fruit, (green grape,) unsalted cracker, some fine hops also. Light bodied, crisp, clean, wonderfullerly bitter, loads of carbonation. Terrific! I feel this style is very much under-rated.

lamas (1573) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2005
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A fairly clear pale-gold pour with a thick and fizzy off-white head that leaves some slight rings of lace. Crisp aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast and some cream. The taste is definitely bready and malty. A little one-dimensional. I wasn’t expecting this taste at all from the aroma. Quite perfumed. Grainy body with the slightest hints of orange and lemon. Not a style I think much of, I guess. Fairly bland and boring. Still, it’s a refreshing and solid beer.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden colored with big white head. The aroma is clean and refreshing, with some malt notes and a light grassy hop aromas.The taste is clean as well, with malt dominating in a subtle way, followed by a dry and slight bitter aftertaste. A well made beer.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
A light orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flaovr is sweet malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter end. A cleanly made beer - just not too exciting.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2005 A dort for their 100th anniversary? Why not. This is one masterful brew from an underappreciated brewer. Pours a perfect gold with a finger’s length of fine white bubbles. Smells of bananas, whipped cream, nutmeg and a slight tinge of a grassy note could be picked up here. Taste is sweet and near perfect and is what you’d expect from a good dort with some orange notes, with some very nice subtle hoppy fieldgrass elements. Slightly bitter on the finish. Definitely worthy of the name.

Bottle. Pale golden colour with a big white head. Malty sweetness, hoppy aroma and a light sweet malty hoppy taste. Medium body and a light sweet finish.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Light hoppy nose, with some underlying maltyness. Yellow colored body, with a small white head. Sweet and malty flavor, with a very light hoppyness in the end.

ehh, this was kind of a disappointment. expected more from a 100th anniversary beer from a german brewery. it’s ok, I’d say it was a clean, crisp, refreshing brew but was still a bit of a disappointment, kind of bland for what it was.
