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.”

Wow what a nice Helles bier... it really wowed me that anything like this could come out of a bottle shipped across the pond.... really nice with a full malty body, yet refreshingly lite.

bottle. Nice golden color with a big, creamy head. Nose is malty with hints of spice, hops. Nice malty taste with supporting floral hoppiness. Very refreshing Dortmunder style.

Reminded me of a Belgian White in color. Pale yellow with some haze, but no sediment. Nice white foam head and excellent lacings. Aroma is floral and mildly malty. There is no fruit flavor that I can taste. Beer has excellent balance. Flavor is light and crisp. Finish is clean with no bitterness. Best served cold. Nice.

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 (2413) - 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.
