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.”

Perfect helles from Bavaria. Nice heady, malty aroma, light golden color with airy head. taste is biscuity malt with some hop bitterness. I’d expect nothing less from Ayinger, this one’s a must have.

Tap Ayingers krog i München. Bästa helles i Tyskland antagligen. Från träfat. Frisk maltig med subtil humleton. Lerkrus. Rund mild och ack så lättdrucken. Ingen spritsighet. Suverän !

Hellgelb, klar, zurückhaltendes Aroma, dafür starker Körper und schöne Balance mit dem dezenten Hopfen, lang anhaltender Abgang

Ritzn (219) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is normal helles stuff with a little more malt. Taste is sour and a little bittersweetness. But mostly sour. In the finish the bitterness comes through. Medium body, a little smoother than the average helles. Overall ok but nothing special.

cagou007 (931) - FRANCE - MAY 24, 2016
Pours clear pale yellow with medium white head. Nose is slightly fruity. Aromas are sweet malts and grass. Average carbonation, light body. Short grassy finish. Don’t get the wow factor here...

JRisWasted (15) - La Palma, California, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours a golden yellowish color with incredible fluffy head. Grassy, herbal, spicy aromas come through. Taste follows the aroma closely. Sweet biscuit followed by the nice herbal bitterness. This one does an excellent job of maintaining head throughout. Great helles lager.

Cristobal37 (706) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2016
Golden slightly hazy. Really sweet helles. Sugary like honey, malty beer. Nice table beer. No bitterness, really sweet and smooth. Nice but I kinda like when these kinds of beers have a slight bitterness in the finish. This one is all about malts.

Pours near-clear light golden with a lasting, clingy pillow of whitest head lacing the glass nicely. Aroma is nice with light honey, bread/biscuit and slight grass. Flavor is similarly pleasant - malty and semisweet bread dominate with only a touch of hop to balance. Delicious, and best lager I’ve had.
