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.”

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.

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.

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.

500ml bottle, no date found. Very pale color, straw...thin white head, leaves just the slightest whisper of lacing. I get some apple/pear type of fruitiness in the nose along with malt, hop spice, hay, maybe just a hint of sulphur...nice aroma. The body is fuller than the color would indicate...Nice malty beer with plenty of earthy goodness to it...this is a gorgeous lager...nothing bland about it at all. Its bursting with flavor, yet still crisp and light to drink.

Cloudy yellow with a short lasting head and some lacing. The taste is clean and crips, with a nice touch of bitter. The flavors include honey and flowers.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours clear golden with a nice well retained egg white head. Aroma is earthy and biscuity. Flavor is extremely clean with light malty earthiness. The Germans really know how to do lagers.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2005
One of the better Germans. Strong traditional reinheitsgebot flavors (malt, hops in particular), but this beer has a bit more oompapa than its Teutonic counterparts.

Fresh malty aroma is strongly reminiscent of bread dough with some grassy hops. Hazy pale straw coloured body is topped by a pillowy, white, fine-bubbled head that lasts nicely and recedes with some lacing. Wonderfully balanced interplay between the fair grassy, spicy hop flavour and a full but dry maltiness with a decent bitterness in the finish. Medium body with moderate effervescent carbonation and a very soft texture - moreso as it warms. Lager glass, slightly above fridge temp. Bottle (Winooski Beverage Warehouse, Nov. 2004).

Clear golden with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma is malty and grainy with some bread. Flavor is also malty and grainy with notes of lemon, grass and floral hops. Pleasantly sweet. Aftertaste is clean, can’t really detect any bitterness. Dry finish. Medium-thin body with moderate carbonation. Lacing hangs on the glass in sheets, good head retention. Very nice dort/helles.
