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.”

This one had a bit of a dirty clothes in the hamper aroma, sort of like a baby's diaper bag. A lot of bittering saaz hops throughout the session. As belgianhomebrew said, this would go great with McD's food.

This ber smells like socks sitting in the hamper. Lots of saaz flavor throughout. A decent lager if they could work on the aroma. There was an unanimous decision that this beer would go great with a McDonalds cheeseburger.

Pretty good.Overpriced.I did not like the pale color of this one/head was huge and quick yet had great lace/some micro floaties.Nice and crisp as expected/decent yet a tad thin malt character.

Reid (1874) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Lovelly bottle 500ml very colourful label and a great cap.. All in all a handsome lager very nice large head which sticks around for a while nice gold colour to the beer , its also slightly hazy which adds to the appeal. Smell is pretty malty buy pleasant enough. Taste very crisp and refreshing..even a bit of dough in there sweetish. Very creamy feeling for a lager in the mouth. All in all an excellent summer session bier

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Pale golden with long lasting soft white head. Aroma of malt, bread, a touch of honey. Full malt flavor with a slight hop bite, finishes sweet then dry. A well made easy drinking beer.

Frank (2817) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Surprisingly hazy pale yellow. Big foamy but quickly diminishing white head. Pale malt is front and center here lending a pleasant fruity sweetness. Light bodied with very mild carbonation. A classic example of one of the oldest lager styles.

Pale gold, crystal clear with a dense white head. Aroma is malt, malt, malt, but still balanced with a decent noble hop. Flavor is right on for a Helles, malty, but no toast/roast character. Very clean throughout.

What the hell? The color of a desert at sunrise? Did MartinT write that? This may be the mildest Ayinger I've had yet. Wheat dominates with only a few wisps of esters here and there. This has a super clean finish without the bite akin to most lagers. Very mild.

Very light gold color, snow white head. Fruity aroma of pears, apples, and bananas. Taste was similar with some spice as well. Smooth mouthfeel with a dry finish. Another fine Ayinger.

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.
