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.”

Pours bright and beautiful, the color of a desert at sunrise ... no, just kidding. It’s a bright, clear gold color with a creamy, white head. The aroma is malty and slightly lagery-sour. Flavor is sweet malt with a clean, bitter finish. Not a bad beer ... not great, though. It certainly doesn’t live up to the lofty commercial deScription.

Pours a creamy white head that vanishes to a pale film. Hazy straw color. Not the prettiest beer. Aroma of honey and malt. Taste is certainly there. Long on malt like only the Germans can seem to master. A crisp note at the end that says "Tettanger"...to me at least.

bottle. poured a hazy yellow with a decent head. the flavor was more citrus than the malt I was expecting. Glad I tried it but there are others out there I like better

JK (5329) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Aromas of hops, grapefruit, and wet dog. Cloudy yellow like a wit, no head. Flavor of malt and very light citrus. Dry finish. Sweeter and more malty as it warmed. Light palate.

from the bottle. poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. aroma, citrus, hops, yeast, lemony, pepper. flavor, was surprised by the sweetness that 1st came out, malts, sweet apples, orange, with a touch of lemon. has a nice smooth and creamy mouth feel to it. this would be a good summer beer.

Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Some very thin and droopy lacing. Malt and yeast aromas with a lemon-hop nose. Mellow and creamy malt flavor with a lemon finish. Palate is creamy and a little fizzy.

Had at Ayingers. They tapped a Wooden cask of this stuff the night we were there. Served similar to a cask ale- in that it was almost no carbonation yet a huge white head and left great lacing. However it was served relatively cold compared to a cask ale, which is good for a helles i guess. THis is a lot better than thier regular helles though. Much smoother, and a lot more flavor and a fuller body. Very sweet lightly caramelized malt with a hint of continental hops in the aroma and in the aftertaste. One of the smoothest and most drinkable of all Helles lagers, which is saying a lot since almost all helles are very drinkable. I’ve had many helles in the 3 weeks I was in europe and this one stood out to be the best by far. Great beer.

Pale golden color with soft fluffy head. Scent is malty as is the taste. Too much in both departments for me. I was expecting more because of the brewer, but this my least favorite of any Ayinger I’ve had.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 This poured a slightly hazy, very pale yellow with a foamy head, which disappeared after a short while. Very tighly carbonated. The aroma was very sweet, but not offensively so, smelling like warm fresh bread. The sweetness wasn’t that heavy in this medium-bodied, malt-heavy drink. Crisp finish, but left my lips and moustache sticky.
