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.”

Had this beer for the first time last night and it was skunky. Never really had a problem with the liquor store where this beer was bought but this beer was really skunky. Golden in color, but couldn't drink it.

This is one of the best "light beers" that I have had. Very light straw color. Head lasts, but not that thick. Rich malt flavor has been refined through years of practice. Add in a touch of hops. These guys once again show why they are the best.....

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Straw colored and slightly hazy with a grand and long lasting silky head. It had a fruity aroma, pears, bananas, and as it warmed some I could faintly smell some hops. Fairly light bodied and creamy, malty with a hint of citrus and yeast. The finish was mild with a touch of bitterness. A fine brew!

Smells like a wheat beer with a pure golden color. The flavor is kinda malty with some fuity tones to it. Pretty good.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Cloudy Gold, no head. Tropical fruit aroma. Mellow, rich palate. Seems to a bit of a wheat flavor, maybe a hint of banana as well. Crisp, clean finish.

Pours a clear, light yellow colour with a medium white, foamy head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of citrus. A very clean and refeshing taste of malt with a nice bitterness to finish

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Bottled. Pale golden, hazy, firm head. Papery malty nose. Buttery and dry with rounded toffee maltiness and some grassy hops in the finish. Top quality malt accented beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2003
500 mL bottle, tulip glass. Small, fizzy, white head diminishes quickly and leaves no lacing. Hazy, lemon colored body. Moderate lemon / lime and flower hops. Light bread malt; light dough yeast. Slight spice in the nose. Incredibly balanced sweetness and bitterness are moderate throughout. Slight citric acid adds to the crispness of the finish. Finish is somewhat dry and has a long duration. Light / medium body is watery but not watered down. Carbonation adds to the lightness of this beer without being distracting. Flavors are crisp and bright as is the aroma. Appearance is a little thin, but the body is pretty close to being perfect for this beer (I'd like it to be a little fuller with slightly more carbonation). Very pleasing and would likely be excellent with citrusy / spicy seafood. Not your run of the mill boring lager.

(500ml bottle) Pours a thin, evenly dissipating, white head and a light golden body. Grassy and slight citrus nose. Thin, light and lemony. Bitter citrus finish. Average.
