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.”

Lemony-wheat color, golden and hazy with a small white head that reduced quickly to a scummy film. Aroma of ketchup to start: lemony-tomato. Some malts follow, and doughy yeast. Buttery mouthfeel with a sour citrus flavor leading to sweet malts to finish. Gave me a headache. Twice.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Aroma is malty, bready, with an undertone of fresh hops. The appearance is a bright, clear yellow. The flavor is just as the description says: fresh clean malt, bready and earthy, and a little citrus in the finish. An exceptionally crisp lager. The palate is full, and the carbonation is as well, but it is not injected carbonation, it’s natural, tiny bubbles of CO2 that help the flavor fill your entire mouth. This is a delicious lager that would make an awesone everyday beer, the adjective "clean" being a perfect summation.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Crystal clear bright gold. Nice white head. Aroma of bread, cookies and fallen leaves. Crisp malty beer like a restrained pilsener. A bit of wet wood in the taste. Foamy on the tongue.

This is my first beer from this catagory ... and I think its ok... but I feel like there is a cardboard aroma and taste. This beer in particular was almost overpoweringly apple/pear flavored/scented. IUt pours a nice straw gold color and with a pretty large, but breif head.

bottle from brickskeller. clear gold, decent sized white head that sticks around but doesnt really lace. aroma is slightly malty, and taste reflects this. it’s clean, slightly metallic, with a little orange in the finish. pretty good stuff, very drinkable.

Bready aroma hazy yellow. Very clean smooth flavor. It needs some defintion however. Malty and slightly friuty. Good taste and very drinkable.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours a light slightly hazy yellow color. Aroma is sweet and malty. A little bit of graininess as well. A little spice. Nice malty flavor up front. Has a bit of a yeasty spicy flavor as well.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
Gracias Clark! Nicely hazy yet shining golden hue wears a gentle, slowly fading white head, well-laced and gracious. Strong malt nose, slightly grainy, lightly buttery. Big clean malt profile, highly bready. Finish is just dry enough, finely balanced at that, may just be a bit too grainy in its maltiness rather than pure biscuity like I seem to prefer. As malty as it is, I’m hard-pressed to name anything besides "light/ floral aspects, "light" herbal tones, "light" earthiness etc. Still, surprisingly crisp for a beer that full and eminently drinkable. Good stuff.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2005
Nice tarnished bass color. Short-lived but adequate head. Aromas of sweet grass, earth, stones, and a trace of sourdough. Flavor is well-balanced but I noted lime, rye bread, caraway. Good carbonation, medium hops and slim malt. Good mouthfeel. Great daily drinker.

This an ok Dortmunder. Bready, malty, and earthy flavors. Finishes clean, dry, and crisp.
