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.”

I usually dont like lagers. But of course Ayinger is no average beer. Still has a bit of the nasty lager aftertaste, but mostly covered up by better flavors of malt, fruit, and honey. Slightly bitter hop finish, crisp with carbonation. Some sour flavor in there that I cant place. Fairly complex stuff for a lager. Not bad for a lager, but I think i will stick with the hefeweizens, dunkels, and Ayinger’s truly spectacular Celebrator Doppelbock.

My first helles. Pours a beautiful translucent pale gold, thin head. Nose is yeasty and sweet. First taste is honey, then segueing into powerful wheat/barley bread flavor, with a bread aftertaste. No off notes. Yum.

Cloudy, Yellow, straw-like color with light head. Sweet, wheat, complex aroma. Not too sweet, somewhat toasty, and blanaced flavor. Palate starts crisp and finishes full bodied. I like all ayinger beers and this one did not dissappoint.

330ml crown top bottle (Thanks Sammy) In the glass this is a hazey straw colored lager, lively effervescence, puffy 2 finger white cap and superb lacing. Smells earthy, herbal, husks and malt...a promising nose to this genuine lager. Great malt chatacter... bready with tones of lemon, herbs and musty honey at the finish. Finishes clean with earthy malt after tastes. Great tasting genuine helles lager...malty without being too sweet, hopped to give herbal balance but not obscure the fine malts. Refreshing flavorful, well crafted....I could drink dozens in a sitting..this is a world class authentic lager just made for sessions.

Light yellow-orange with a casual haziness and a towering foam head. Light zesty aroma. Milky and gristy with a vague yeasty character, almost a lemon-rindy finish.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 The appearance of this beer is cloudy like the Anchor offerings. Especially the Liberty Ale. The aroma is dominated by malt, quite sweet in terms of the aroma. The taste is fruity and malty for the most part. The mouthfeel is pretty good. I taste fruit and white wine combined. The flavor is weak. Much weaker then the Brau Weisse in my opinion. Pretty good stuff especially for a lager.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a decent white head and mild carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty, mild hop spice, and a light pear aroma. Also a little dandelion. Flavor is very well balance, malts and hops working in perfect harmony. Dry finish. Excellent!

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.
