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.”

Awesome looking beer. Ample white head with bubbles cascading up the beer. Great flavor. Sweet malt flavor and gentle bitterness. We'll done beer from a great Brewery.

Poured a large white long lasting head. The lacing was not very good on the sides of my mug. It had a yellow body to it and a cloudy appearance. It had a fruity aroma to it. It was very bitter tasting in my opinion. It had an aftertaste that lingered a bit.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a very large white head of fine to medium sized bubbles and a cloudy wheat yellow body. With a mild hoppy aroma and the flavor of fizzy banana and hops, this beer goes down smoothly with a slight bite to its finish.

Allmost a shame to tos the bottle cap,it's pretty cool.Nice white head kind of short lived.Sweet malt aroma,slight lemon smell,yeast,possible banana,very faint fresh bread smell as well.Slight green olive taste some tones of vinegar,the fruit definately hit the road as far as the flavor goesSlight hoppiness to it but that olive taste really hangs on.If you've ever just grabbed an olive straight out of the jar you'll know what im talking about.It could be the beer or just a mix of all the other beer's that may be lingering on my palate that are giving me that taste,but i'd have to say this is not that great a beer.I'm glad i only have one to try.

HUGE white frothy head, a hazy pale yellow body, plenty of carbonation. Light yeastiness with citrus notes, grapefruits and faint bananna phenols. Lemony and a faint fruity hop character. Thin, but appropriate, a crisp, cleanbeer with just a hint of cloying.

Hazy straw color with a medium white head. An attic aroma with ripe fruit. Taste is slightly musty yet very refreshing.

I had this at a 'bavarian' beer tasting. I guess lagers don't "wow" me. nothing special, nothing too bad here

I didn't enjoy this as much as the Weisse from Ayinger but the Lagers are not one of my favorite styles. Nonetheless, this is what I can say is a classic German lager. It is a refreshing beer. Clean, malty and fresh just like the description. Reminded me instantly of some of the beer I had in Duesseldorf a couple years ago. Has that German taste to it. I don't know how else to describe it but I would drink it again. Not a dissapointment

UPDATED: APR 19, 2003 I do not believe that Ayinger makes any bad products and this is yet again another great beer. This lager has a Foggy golden color, light cautious aroma, and a smooth refreshing taste. Not to light not to heavy, just an invigorating and smooth beer.

Bottle. A light yellow color with a foamy white head. A sweet honey malty and falvor with a little spice. A middle of the road good but not exciting.
