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.”

Palate has some apple notes along with traditional lager taste. For a second I thought I tasted belgian, but maybe not. Good body, but less than the other Ayingers.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2005 In the Centruy Celebration Bavarian Lager. Huge off white head. Tons of carbonation bubbles, yet they are not felt in the mouth. Nice golden color. Slight citrus aroma and flavor. Otherwise, a little spice. This is better than most lagers.

A good German beer. Not as skunky tasting as most German beers. It has a clean, crisp, malty taste with a slightly dry finish. Not bad at all.

Dorwart (2377) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Nice light bready aroma witha a touch of citrus. Large white head with ok carbonation. Spectacular lacing. Slightly cloudy, pale gold color. Flavor is mild but good that is light and crisp with citrus, yeast and some hops. Finish is a little dry and and a little bitter. This beer has more flavor and character than it looks like it should have. A plesant surprise.

jsquire (3478) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Very pale yellow out of the bottle with an egg white fowm head. Light yeast nose. Light citrus malts with a clean finish. Nothing to detract but not much to excite me either.

Big Head Lemon Juice Color. Tasted like a very thin Wheat beer to me. Not bad just not what I expected.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Light-golden / deep-straw and cloudy whitish with a decent head. Moderate carbonation, even lively at times. Sharply spicy, bitter and a little sour ... malt base has a little trouble keeping up. Overall, nicely spicy and sweet, but a little too bitter (especially in the aftertaste) and slightly unbalanced.

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.
