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.”

ryanscourt (662) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
Strong sweet biscuit aroma and flavor. Interesting flavors and body. Strong honey notes. Very mild finish with light lingering hops. Sweet aftertaste, a little different. Not my favorite ayinger but enjoyable.

martjoobolut (552) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 01.15. Pours clear straw with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grains, malt and some bready hints. Flavor follows the nose, but also has a touch of alcohol. Overall: I usually hate macro lagers that have similar grainy-bready taste, but this one is very well balanced and flavor just feels very clean (in a good way). Great example of not hoppy pale lager.

RaduLuchian (39) - München, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Clear gold body, medium white head that fades away rather quickly. High carbonation, subtle honey and hops smell, smooth malts, leaves taste, gentle bittery aftertaste and somewhat acidic finish.

maltman53 (268) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours straw-yellow with persistent head. Not much aroma - little grainy, faint noble hops. Nice milkshake medium body mouthfeel. Overall, balanced and smooth the malt profile of a Helles, the hop character of a Pils, and is silightly stronger than both.

Iznogud (565) - CROATIA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours yellow with white head. Malty aroma and flavor. Medium body. Sweetish.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle at World of Beer Easton while watching the Germany vs. Algeria game on 6/30/14. Clear yellow pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and crisp noble hops. Sweet malt flavor with crisp hops before a sweet finish.

MiamiBarman (24) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Ayinger does it again. A spectacular Helles with a classic pale gold appearance and a pretty long lasting head. The aroma is of baking sweet bread. The taste is hop-balanced with minimal sweetness and pleasant bitterness. An exceptional example of a Helles lager.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
Sehr hell im Glas, hopfig-blumiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist frisch-hopfig-dominiert, zum Hauptteil hin entfaltet sich eine leichte süßliche Note. Sehr süffig. Diese süßliche Note mit einer leichten Würzigkeit wird zum Abgang hin immer dominierender über der Hopfenblumigkeit. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine angenehm süßlich, feinherb-blumige Note.
--> Sehr leckeres Bier, schön frisch süffig, besitzt aber nicht viel Tiefgang. 11+12+10+11

BeerViking (2291) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle at Caffè Lago, Isola Bella. Pale gold with a fine white head, light dry grass and biscuit nose, crisp malt and hops, like a mild Pils or a Helles/Pils hybrid. OK but a bit disappointing.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
500 mL bottle from Bergen Park Liquors. Bright, gold and clear with an average white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, toasted grains, bready malts, light floral notes and noble hops. Similar flavor, malty and earthy with light spicy bitterness. Medium body, crisp and smooth with ample carbonation. Nice flavored lager, clean and pretty easy to drink.

Cerbier (143) - - JUN 5, 2014
0,5l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit großer Schaumkrone. Riecht etwas malzig. Im Geschmack malzig, leicht bitter und sehr süffig. Tolles Bier!
