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.”

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.

This is one of the best "light beers" that I have had. Very light straw color. Head lasts, but not that thick. Rich malt flavor has been refined through years of practice. Add in a touch of hops. These guys once again show why they are the best.....

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Straw colored and slightly hazy with a grand and long lasting silky head. It had a fruity aroma, pears, bananas, and as it warmed some I could faintly smell some hops. Fairly light bodied and creamy, malty with a hint of citrus and yeast. The finish was mild with a touch of bitterness. A fine brew!

Smells like a wheat beer with a pure golden color. The flavor is kinda malty with some fuity tones to it. Pretty good.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Cloudy Gold, no head. Tropical fruit aroma. Mellow, rich palate. Seems to a bit of a wheat flavor, maybe a hint of banana as well. Crisp, clean finish.

Pours a clear, light yellow colour with a medium white, foamy head. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of citrus. A very clean and refeshing taste of malt with a nice bitterness to finish
